Advent is here

Preparations for Christmas are in full swing with our Advent penitential service beginning this special time. Each class has their own wreath which is lit each week to remind us why we celebrate Christmas, keeping the real message at the heart of all we do. Reception and Yr1 have shared this special message in their wonderful Nativity performance and our Mini Vinnies spread this further visiting Home Lea House to see the residents there. Every night the classes travelling cribs have gone into our children’s homes keeping Christ at the heart of our Christmas celebrations. 
As we will not be together on the day we shared Christmas dinner this week with staff serving the children their dinner of turkey and all the extras. 


Autumn & Winter 2017 

This term we have had a strong learning focus throughout school. We have frequently welcomed our families into school to show them how we learn and they have also been into school to teach us all too! Now we prepare for the birth of Jesus Christ with worship and celebration throughout school. 



Summer 2017

The summer is fast approaching and there have been some wonderful events in school recently. Our Year Three children made their First Holy Communion and we have also had our beautiful Prayer Garden completed. It has certainly been used very frequently so far and we are very proud of our children’s spiritual development. 

Spring 2017

There has been no end to the fun in school recently! We have had our Writing Theme Week with numerous topics spanning school and we have also had our Science Week where children have been adventuring all over. Have a look at our images below to see some of the best bits from a fantastic learning time in school.
