We enjoyed parading our Easter bonnets in our church service and we went on an Easter egg hunt and rolled our decorated eggs! Well done to everyone who made a hat and to our class winners Lauren, Henry, Adair and Grace. Have a lovely Easter everyone!

We had a brilliant STEM week... we had a scientist in to make potions with us, we made and designed things, we measured and weighed, we explored STEM in the woods and at the Zoo, we had a talk from an engineer at the mine and some of us were marine biologists!

On Wednesday the snow came down, there was so much excitement and we had a great time outside before having to go home early. For most of the children this was their first real snow!

It has been a struggle at times but staff have made it through the month and are looking forward to March 1st (as you can see from the photo Miss Sparkes has shared with me!). Thank you to those who supported us, we reached our target and made £203 for Cancer Research. Well done!

Theatre trip

We had a wonderful whole school visit to Plymouth Theatre Royal to see The Enormous Turnip. It was great fun and 2 children were even chosen to go on stage! The children behaved brilliantly and we were proud to take them out!

Christmas show

Amazing! We are all so proud of the children who put on an incredible show. The stage feels smaller each year as our numbers get bigger! Well done to everyone, no matter what part you played, in the words of one parent "they all shone bright as individual stars".
