Year 2 Outdoor Learning

Here are some pictures of the lovely (but chilly) afternoon we had on Thursday. We hope you enjoy the clay/nature faces we made,

as much as we did making them!

Arden’s Arts Festival 2019

We are very excited to announce the dates of our Arts Festival this year taking place in March 2019.  The children will take part in a range of different arts based activities during the week Monday 4th March – Friday 8th March.

However, we would like your help!  If you or someone you know has a particular arts skill (such as rap artist or singer, graphic designer, photographer or even skills with watercolour or sketching) we would love to hear from you!

We would love to share your skills with the children which they can develop to create their own artwork, song or dance routine! You may even inspire the next Van Gogh, Jess Glynne, or Diversity!

If you are keen to take part please speak to your child’s class teacher!

We look forward to hearing back from you!


GB Paralympic Athlete Visit – Wednesday 9th January

This Wednesday we will be having a visit from GB Paralympic athlete Ryan Crouch. Each class will be taking part in a fitness workshop, involving lots of fun activities to promote healthy living and the importance of developing a growth mind-set. Please can your child come to school in school uniform and ensure they bring their PE kits on the day. They will then get changed before their workshop in their PE kits.

Many thanks, Miss Vaissiere and Mrs Coston. PE Coordinators.

Beware – Pavements to school

We thought we should make you aware that we have been informed the pavements on the way to school have a significant amount of dogs mess along them, please be careful where you are stepping on your way in, you may have to heavily supervise your children and walk kerbside.


As the children spend a lot of the Nursery session outside, please can ensure your child has a warm coat, a scarf, gloves and a hat.

Thank you.

Hi-Viz vests

Just to let you know we will be sending these home with children in January.  Unfortunately we had a significant number of these not returned to us last year and so we have been working hard to find a new company willing to donate these to us.  We are delighted to say that Leon from Longwater Construction has kindly agreed to provide these and should be with us for the start of the new year.
