Our end of year open evening was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate all the children’s achievements over the year.

The displays from YR to Y6 showcased our inspiring curriculum.

YR, Y1 & Y2 join in with the RNIB ‘Biggest Ever Bear Hunt’

The infant children took part in a record breaking event to raise money for children who are blind or partially sighted organised by the RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People) on Tuesday 15th July at 10am.

YR, Y1 & Y2 children all brought in their bears and a donation raising £157, and took part in a live streamed broadcast with Michael Rosen the author of ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’.

 

YR Wheel-a-thon!

To celebrate the Essex leg of the ‘Tour de France’ YR took part in an exciting ‘Wheel-a-thon’ where they brought into school a bike, scooter or wheeled vehicle and counted how many laps of the school playground they could do cheered on by parents and families!
