Our Topic this term is

Let's grow! A crispy carrot, a luscious lettuce or a tasty tomato. Dig deep and put your back into it, making your own tubs and planters and nurturing your greens.

Harvest your cops and make soups and dishes of seasonal foods that taste delicious. Learn about farms and where food comes from, writing reports on world wide produce.

Discover which allotments are closest to your school, and open the door to the secret garden.

Then establish your own farmers' market, harvesting your crops and selling local produce. Include garden crafts and work out your prices, be sure to make a profit not a loss!

After all that hard work have your fingers gone green?


The children of Hockney class had a special visit from Sheila of the NSPCC on Thursday 28th February.

Thank you for giving up your time Sheila!

It was a brilliant morning and the children wrote some wonderful poems.

On Thursday afternoon the year 6 children visited Blakeney School where they were treated to an Internet safety session. The children learnt about how to stay safe online and also looked at the age rating of online games.

It was a worthwhile experience and the children picked up some valuable tips.

A special thank you to Gloucestershire Police for coming in to do the talk. Well done all involved!
