Don’t miss this week...

  • Online safety concern – Fortnite and parental controls
  • Jubilee commemorative book

As a school that believes in making learning meaningful to our children by giving them lots of opportunities to apply their learning beyond the walls of our classrooms, we couldn’t be more excited about getting out and about again. Just this week, Early years have been enjoying the sunshine in Hunstanton and our class trips to the library are well underway. Year 5 have been to the Fitzwilliam museum and next week, lower school travel to the space museum in Leicester.

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Commemorative Book

As part of the celebrations in recognition of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the Government is giving all school children a special commemorative book.  Your child should bring their book home today and we hope they will enjoy reading about the life and times of the Queen.

Club plans for September

We have been contacted by a couple of parents to ask when we will be able to share our timetable of clubs for the Autumn term.  We do understand that this is important to help you make arrangements and will be sharing the timetable as soon as possible.  We are just working with our providers to finalise arrangements.
