Our Royal Wedding Party Celebration.

We all had an amazing time at the party and the weather was very kind to us.



I hope you all had a lovely Easter.

Our topic this term is 'Animals' and 'Growing'.  As usual we have lots of exciting things planned and I am sure you will enjoy all our activities.

Grappenhall Heys Walled Gardens

Class R had lots of fun at the Walled Gardens.  We listened to the story, 'Jack and the Beanstalk'.  We then decorated our plant pots beautifully and planted our own beans. 


Kate who delivered the activities was very impressed with our listening skills and impeccable behaviour. 

The chicks are here!

Class R have been learning about the lifecycle of chicks.  

We saw one of the chicks hatch out if it's egg and it was fascinating to watch.  

We feel very lucky to have the chicks in school and we are watching them grow every day.

Reading at Home

A huge thank you to all our parents for supporting your child's reading at home.  Reading every night with your child helps them become confident and fluent readers. 

Just a reminder to ensure you make a comment in their Reading Record to help us know who reads on a regular basis.


Thank you once again for your continued support in your child's learning journey.

  • The home link book should be kept in your child's plastic wallet and returned to school daily
  • Soon your child will bring a reading book home, along with a reading record book.  Please comment in here every time you read with your child
  • Could you please ensure your child's purse, uniform and PE kit are clearly labelled with their name on
