Welcome to Term 6


This term our project  asks the question 

"What makes a good life?"

We are learning about plants and animals, their habitats and cycles of life.

We will continue to think about all  we do to help ourselves make the most of our lives and  to help others enjoy their's too.

Welcome to the Summer.

Falcons are already enjoying Summer Term 2021 and very much hope they will be able to stay in school ALL term!  They did brilliantly in the Spring  working from home but it is just not the same as all learning together.


This term our project is called "Where in the World?"  and we are looking at the world in all its variety and glory.

Welcome to the Spring

Falcons have enjoyed being back in school with the friends they have missed .

Spot them in the slide show reading, playing, chatting and catching up.

Fishy Textiles 

We researched the problem of plastic in the oceans as part of our home learning project "How can we make a difference?".

When we returned to school we used textiles to create much happier underwater scenes.

Our cold, hard pebbles were made beautiful by the coming of Easter.

Happy Christmas from Falcons

Falcons are really looking forward to the last week of term and the Christmas Holidays having been a great fun and hard working crew.

This week they  have made some fabulous festive framed family  art work.

Even though we can't hold our usual fund raising Christmas fair, we are hoping that families will buy these lovely pieces and be very proud  and, at the same time, raise some money for the school.

Each piece is unique and bespoke to your family and a bargain at £3 each (although we are happy to accept more  wink)

Please send your money into class in an envelope with your child  and their beautiful frame will come home.
