Keeping in Touch
A massive, heart-felt THANK YOU for all your support and for engaging with our teachers to ensure that the children continue with their learning and enjoyment during these very strange times.
The priority, of course, is to stay safe and follow all the guidelines being issued by the Government. We want to support you in any way we can and you should contact your teachers on the class email, the office or myself if there is anything we can do to help. firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
This page has been set up to provide details of additional support available to you and any further school news. We will continue to be in contact with you via text and email.
With love and best wishes to you all. Gaynor Leadbeater.

Frog Life Cycle
We have been talking a lot, in school, about frogs and tadpoles. So I decided to go on a frogspawn hunt. Sienna told me to go 'through Bluebell Woods and along the stream, over the bridge to the bottom'. Great instructions, as I came straight to it. Luckily some more friends were around when I got there and pointed me to the exact place.
Here are the tadpoles emerging...
They have grown so much in less than a week. I will keep posting updated pictures, so that you can see their progress. Maybe you could draw the frog life cycle too.
Well done to Thomas who has created a wonderful Stop Animation
Well done to Eleanor who has produced this fantastic French Guidebook from 1890. You definitely Star of the Week this week!
