Roots of Empathy

Yesterday, Mrs Dewsnap came to deliver our first Roots of Empathy session and we had lots of fun.

Before our first visit from Baby Benny next week, we have been asked to name the ROE doll. We have had a circle to think of some name suggestions (and decided it’s a boy) and would like parents and children to vote for the best name!

1. Max

2. Rocky

3. Toby

4. Olaf

Cast your votes by commenting on this post! We will decide the winner on Tuesday 21st.

If you go down to the woods today…

The EYFS went to Thorne Community Woods this morning. We explored the surroundings, looking at the different trees, leaves and features of our local area. We took some video and photographic footage for our celebration event at the end of our theme.

Unfortunately we didn’t find a Gruffalo today but we had a great morning out in the local area, exploring the squelchy mud, fresh morning air and brisk walk down to the orchard.

Thanks to all the parents and carers who were able to support our local walk this morning – we appreciate your continued support!



KS1 and EYFS house point award winners


Well done to the KS1 and EYFS house point winners this week! It was a delight to deliver assembly this morning and announce the winners. We celebrated lots of successes in and out of school. I have also set the new attendance challenge – let’s see which class is the winner!

Beautiful dancers competing out of school

I was delighted to receive an email from a parent this weekend sharing with me the awesome achievement of these 4 girls in a dance competition. ‘The girls performed as part of the Angela Gravil School of Dance in their first ever competitions and placed 3rd out their section,’.

The girls were very beautiful ‘Ugly Ducklings’! I can’t wait to hear all about it girls!!

If you have any news you’d like to share with the EYFS team and classes  please email me on the email address.
