I can’t tell you how impressed I am with the girls’ reading, I had no idea when they started in reception last year they would be one year later picking up their own books and reading them on their own.
What’s even nicer to watch is, it is a pastime they enjoy.
We had [...]
I’ve been meaning to write an update on the girls progress for a while (since half term!) but keep getting side tracked so I’m biting the bullet and here we go.
Just before half term our school opened the classroom doors and invited the parents in to have a look around. This is an [...]
Egmont have published Spaghetti with the Yeti in September and they sent us a copy to review. It is the first in a new picture book series from Adam and Charlotte Guillan and is a rhyming tale around a little boy called George who sets off to find the yeti with a tin [...]
Our school does a lot to try and encourage children into walking to and from school. Their initiatives help cut down on traffic and bad driving around the school plus it promotes good habits of walking, fresh air and moments away from screens.

‘We break up, we break down, we don’t care if the school falls down …’ do kids still sing that song these days? It was hollered at the top of our voices as we left the school building for the final time in the school year but maybe it’s more of a senior school [...]
We had our first sports day last week and were invited along to the school to watch from the side lines as the 4 reception classes were split into five groups to play the games that had been set out for them.
Each singular group was then split into four teams of [...]
3.10pm Mrs H let’s the class out.
Bessie comes bounding towards me, a huge smile on her face carrying her lunch bag, her book bag, a half empty water bottle and a plastic bag with what looks like her school summer dress.
