Roald Dahl Day

We all had lots of fun on Roald Dahl Day!

We read the book George's Marvellous Medicine and created our very own marvellous medicine using carefully selected ingredients.

Autumn Scavenger Hunt


We explored our school grounds hunting for signs of autumn. We found crunchy, brown leaves, acorns and lots of twigs. We used these materials to create our fantastic self-portraits.

The Great Fire of London

We have enjoyed learning all about The Great Fire of London. We had lots of fun being history detectives. We used our detective skills to discover when The Great Fire happened, how it started and why it spread so fast. We designed our very own Tudor House- similar to those built in 1666. We collected wooden sticks from our school forest and constructed houses using recycled materials.

Year 2 SATs 2021

Year 1 Phonics Screening 2021

Schools will administer the phonics screening check in the week beginning Monday 7 June 2021.


1. What is the Year 1 phonics screening check?

The phonics screening check is taken individually by all children in Year 1 in England. It is designed to give teachers and parents information on how your child is progressing in phonics. It will help to identify whether your child needs additional support at this stage so that they do not fall behind in this vital early reading skill.


2. What is in the phonics screening check?

There are two sections in this 40-word check and it assesses phonics skills and knowledge learned through Reception and Year 1. Your child will read up to four words per page for their teacher and they will probably do the check in one sitting of about 5–10 minutes.
