Head of School update

Dots, Mod Rock, Maths and creative writing…and maybe a little mud!

Just some of the amazing things children have been learning and producing this week.  They have been really working super hard!  This week the children have all been exploring a number of different creative skills along with being fabulous in their maths learning!  In addition our year 4’s have had an amazing but potentially very muddy experience at Hilltop, parents might need to expect some wet clothes along with the return of tired but grinning children!  They have all been so brilliant and enjoyed the trip.  Check out our facebook page for more photos.  In our weekly class updates  you can catch up with what the children have been up to – take a look, the photos are great too!
