Well done Evie!


Spears at the Ready!

As part of their creative curriculum Topic 'Invaders, Raiders, Settlers and Traders', our Year 5 children visited the Yorkshire Museum and Danelaw Centre in York.

The children had an amazing time learning about the way the Vikings lived. They made clay oil lamps, ground flour to make bread and practised their battle skills!

It was great fun and the children had a brilliant day.

Year 3 day out exploring

Our Year 3's had a great day out visiting Creswell Crags as part of their creative curriculum topic.

During the visit the children did a selection of activities based on the Stone Age and Prehistoric Britain, including reassembling a skeleton and spotting 27 caves, one of which they toured. This cave had particularly large spiders and mummified rats, which the children found extremely interesting.


Harvest Festival

A huge thank you to all pupils and parents for their generous donations to our Harvest Festival Assembly. This helps us support The Archer Project, which works with the homeless and vulnerable in Sheffield to help them find ways out of homelessness and exclusion.



Year 6 Creature Invasion

Our Year 6 pupils enjoyed a morning meeting creatures as part of their topic on Brazil.

The visit reinforced the knowledge and understanding of creatures and their habitats. In addition, children were able to hold different animals such as snakes, lizards and spiders.

The visit was a huge success with both teachers and pupils enjoying the experience.


Year 3 Stone Age Day

Our Year 3 children had a visit from The History Van. This was a unique, interactive experience where the year 3 children and staff dressed and acted as prehistoric cavemen re-enacting important events from this period.

The children made weapons and clothes and designed their own jewellery.

The whole day was a great success, thoroughly enjoyed by both pupils and staff.


Exciting Playground Plans!

This picture shows the exciting plans we have for our outside area in the coming year.

We are committed to making our outside area an amazing play space for our children so playtimes can be as fun and enjoyable as possible. All our fund raising is now focused on this project.

We hope you can support us in the coming year to make our dream possible!
