Things are very different for us all at the moment. School is closed and we are all staying safely at home.
Over the past few days you have all been sending in pictures of you and your work for our school website. It has been lovely to see you all and your fantastic work.
Here are our pictures, see if you can find your picture, your friends and see what busy jobs your teachers have been doing.
We hope that you are all well and we cannot wait to see everyone again soon, but until then stay safe and take care from Mrs Broughton, Mrs Hamilton, Mrs Roach, Miss Charters, Mrs Caine and Mrs Downham

So far we have explored colour through mark making with a variety of different pens, pencils and paints and we have made monsters and rockets from shapes.
Each Thursday morning, our Nursery class take part in a range of Sure Start activities run by Barnardos. These sessions aim to promote children's social skills through fun, physical activities. We hope that these activities will help to boost the children's confidence and create many friendships.
