The afternoon class were pleased to get their Bookstart book bags. All the parents were invited to the nursery class to hear about the Bookstart programme and share a story and some songs with us. We hope everyone enjoys reading their new stories and makes good use of their lovely bags; they are ideal for a trip to the library in the Easter holidays!

As part of our Eco Schools focus, P6 were set the challenge of weeding the playground. Despite the ground being very hard, every pupil worked their socks off to weed and clear the large flower bed under the Dining Room window. Great work, P6.
World Book Day!
Last week we had lots of fun dressing up as characters from our
favourite stories. The children looked great. We had Snow White,
Little Red Riding Hood, a cook, some beautiful fairies and princesses,
quite a few superheroes and some mean looking pirates! Books were shared
with friends, and many were read in class. Thank you to the parents
for all your support. The children had a great day and now talk confidently
about their favourite books and stories.
Both classes enjoyed making pancake mixture and eating delicious
pancakes for snack. They also developed hand eye co-ordination with some
pancake tossing (using play-dough pancakes). The afternoon class really
enjoyed listening to the story Mr Wolf’s Pancakes. A story about a wolf that
ate all his neighbours as well as his huge plate of pancakes!
