The Enchanted Woodland


If you go down to the woods today you’re in for a BIG surprise. Foxes and badgers, voles and mice, beady eyed owls in the swaying tree tops. Beneath the leaves are tiny footprints – animal or imp? Gruffalo and Stick Man? You decide. Deciduous or evergreen? Can you match a leaf to its tree? Can you match a petal to its flower? Let’s build a den, stick by stick and branch by branch. Or we could make a teeny tiny home for a woodland fairy. Then let’s party down in the woods with Mr Fox and all his woodland friends. We’d better not get lost. Let’s leave a trail of conkers as we go. At last, it’s time to rest by the woodland fire, listening to stories and toasting our sweet, gooey marshmallows. Yum, yum.

Children must wear P.E. kit to school every Monday and Tuesday.

Forest School takes place every Wednesday for children in 1B and every Thursday for children in 1C.  Children must wear old suitable outdoor clothing on their Forest School day.


Home reading books should be brought to school daily.  The online reading library can also be accessed from home on a tablet or computer.  Please listen to your child read every day.


If your child is required to self isolate, school work will be sent home using the remote learning app Seesaw.  It is very important that all children who are isolating will access this and respond to their teacher so they can stay up to date with their learning.  If you are having difficulty using or accessing Seesaw, please contact the school office as soon as possible.


Due to current guidance we are unable to welcome parents and carers into school.  Please email your child's teacher if you have any questions, queries or concerns.
