Impressive STEAM careers presentations

Base 14 produced and presented some absolutely fantastic posters yesterday. They researched a STEAM related career and a related scientist and then presented their findings to the class. Very impressive creativity – well done!

STEAM – Career dress up day

Wow! Base 14 looked fantastic today and described the links between STEAM careers and their outfits brilliantly. Well done!

Year 3 and 4 Sports’ Day

Despite the gathering clouds, the drizzling rain and umbrellas going up all around, the year 3 and 4 sports’ day went ahead with enormous success: so much so that by the end, the rain had disappeared.

The children gave their all to the field and track events and there was great success, achievement and fun all around. We definitely have some future archers and javelin throwers in our midst.

Thank you so much to everyone who came along and supported the children, even in the not-so glorious summer weather.

Whole School Author Visit on 9th July

On the 9th July, we are really lucky to be having children’s author Samantha Fletcher-Goodwin coming to visit us in school.

Samantha is going to be sharing her new book, ‘Glow From The Inside’, and talking to the children about how she became an author and the processes involved. Samantha’s book is available to purchase from Amazon and Waterstones.

PE – Thursday 20th photo day

Just a reminder to parents to please send your children into school in their school uniform on photo day.

Children can bring their PE kit in a bag in order to have any sports team photos taken.

Base 11 will have PE in the afternoon this week.

KS1 and KS2 cake sale

We will be holding 2 cake sales in July to raise money for school and would really appreciate any cake donations that you can bring in on those days.

The cakes will be on sale to the children during their breaktime.

EYFS/KS1 – Friday 5th July

KS2 – Friday 12th July


Forest School and PE reminder

Just a reminder that each Thursday this half term, your child will need to come to school in their indoor PE kit but with appropriate outdoor clothing for forest school. The ground is currently still very wet so wellies and waterproofs would be ideal.


World Book Day 11-03-24

Thank you to everyone for a fantastic World Book Day on Monday. We had amazing costumes from both children and staff; a great visit from local author, Sarah Griffiths, and a story share with older children reading the younger children’s favourite stories to them.

World Book Day 11-03-24

Base 14 had a great day celebrating World Book Day. They came to school in fantastic costumes and enjoyed guessing which characters they had all come as.
