We dressed up as Victorians for the launch of the ship across the Atlantic in 1843 and learnt how to join the iron hull with rivets. A brilliant day was had by all!

We had great fun for our topic Animal Magic

Take a look at some of our work and sometimes us in the classroom. You are always welcome to come into school and take a closer look. You can see from the displays in our classrooms the variety of topics we cover. As the year progresses, the displays change. By July, you will be able to see the whole range of subjects we have covered. Our Working walls help us learn – the content builds as the term progresses.
