(Home) School's Out For Summer!


Well done! You've made it to the end of the school year and we are SO proud of all you've achieved at home following our home learning plans. School may now be 'out'  but the learning never stops so why not challenge yourself to complete as many of our Summer 2020 activities as you can? We've put together a range of experiences that will help to enrich your understanding of the world and give you lots to talk about when you come back to school. How many can you tick off during the summer? We look forward to seeing and hearing all about it when you return in September. Until then, stay safe and well and have a wonderful, relaxing break.

With best wishes from Mrs Pinkerton and the Foundation and Key Stage One Team.

Here are some lovely, fun activities if you would like some ideas to keep you all busy. Take care and stay safe and well.

Kind regards, 

The EYFS and KS1 Team.

Science - Investigating our local habitat

The children explored our local habitat - the garden. They search for microhabitats and thought about what creatures might live there. Some children were lucky to find real life examples of minibeasts living in the garden! 

Lighthouse Sketches

Today Year 2 sketched some wonderful lighthouses. They looked carefully at the shapes and details that made up a lighthouse. What a talented class of artists we have! 

RNLI Visitor
