Welcome back from the summer holidays we hope you all enjoyed yourselves!

Autumn Term

This half-term we will be looking at the topic ‘all around us’

This will involve a walk, looking at nature, natural treasures, autumn songs, harvest and looking for treasure in your gardens to mention a few.

If any parents have any further ideas for this topic please mention them to a member of staff.


On Wednesday’s between 10.00-11.00 am @ The Sports Hall there is the opportunity for a session of Zumba. This is open for the cohort of children, starting school in September. They will work together as a group/team, learn songs and movement and listen and respond to instruction. This has been very popular with past children and we ask for a contribution of £1.50/week.


We are finding that our wellie boots are too big for the children this term and are looking for any unneeded or outgrown children’s boots in sizes 4-7
