Pete the Poet


The year 1 children had a great time today with our visitor called 'Pete the Poet'. Pete took the children on a storytelling adventure, riding on magical carpets and dressing up as characters. The children had an inspiring and fun time.


Thank you, Pete the Poet.

First Week in Merlin Class

The children have had a great start to school life in Merlin Class.  Every child has started and returned to school with an amazing, joyful attitude to learning. They have come into school every day with a big smile on their faces and are very well prepared for the new school year. They also look amazingly smart in their new school uniform.  Thank you to all our wonderful parents for preparing the children for the new school year.


The first week has been very busy, we have shared lots of laughter, lots of fun and plenty of learning too.  Here are a few pictures of us enjoying our learning this week. smiley
