Year 2 we’re lucky enough to work with Art Specialist Jane Norman from Olney Middle School last week. They made high relief clay plaques depicting the Great Fire of London which have been sent away to be fired in the kiln and are now ready for painting.

Messy Memories

By Jodie Williams | February 2, 2018

Royal Visit

New year, new learning in Foundation! 

By Jodie Williams | January 15, 2018

What a start to 2018 we have had in Foundation class. The children have come back to school enthused and ready to play and learn! Last Monday we ventured back out into Forest school and had lots of fun building bridges with logs and old Christmas tree branches and made fishing rods out of twigs…

KS2 were very lucky to be visited by staff from Grange Farm Dental Practice to help kick off their new topic: Burps, Bottoms and Bile. They found out lots of amazing new facts about the job of a dentist, teeth types and dental hygiene. One of our class even had a dental check up!
