• EYFS and Year 1 Trip to Longleat

    EYFS and Year 1 had a fantastic trip to Longleat. When we first arrived we went on the boat and saw the new baby gorillas, then we went on the train. After that we explored lots of the animals like the meerkats, the penguins and the anteaters and some of us managed to fit in the Adventure Playground and the Rocking Rhino ride. After our picnic lunch we got back on the coaches to see all the animals on the safari. It was a brilliant day, but we were all very tired by the end!

  • Year 6 Pilgrim Day

  • St. John’s Day

    This week we celebrated St John’s Day at school.  Key stage one were lucky enough to be part of a drama assembly, kindly put on by volunteers from Welton Baptist Church and then followed up with some dove themed crafts in class.  Years 5 and 6 visited the church, freely exploring the different parts and were all excited to be able to climb the tower!  Each child in the school created bunting which depicts what is special about them or our school – this will be out on display for you all to see for future events.
