  • Born in a Barn

    KS1 and Foundation stage worked incredibly hard to put on three fantastic performances of Out of the Ark’s production, ‘Born in a Barn’. A special well done to all the Year 2s for learning their parts and projecting their voices so well. All the children across the 4 year groups performed so well and the singing was beautiful.

  • Christmas in KS1

    KS1 are preparing for their Christmas nativity, ‘Born in a Barn’. The Year 2 children have learned their lines brilliantly and everyone has been practising the songs! They are counting down the days until Christmas with this Christmas stories advent calendar. Each day during December there is a new book to open and read. We’ve read poems, Christmas stories and stories about winter. We can’t wait to find out what will be next!
