This week we have begun our Spring Assessments in school. These are opportunities for all pupils to show off their new skills and knowledge and to perform their personal best in all areas of learning. These will continue into next week. We ask all our parent/carers to make sure that children are all in school every day and on time.
Reception class are enjoying the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, using puppets to tell the story and practising their good speaking. They are also doing one more and one less counting.

This week we have conducted Primary Talk interviews with pupils from all classes to monitor progress in improvement in Speaking skills. Staff are pleased to report that a significant improvement is evident since the beginning of this academic year.
Year 2 led the school with their topic assembly on Friday. We were all impressed with their great knowledge about Nocturnal creatures. Tom our Football coach presented awards to pupils from the Football squad that have performed well over the last half term.
