Nursery - Partridge Eggs

Tuesday 22 June 2021

On Monday 21st June, the Nursery received an exciting delivery of partridge eggs. We put them in the incubator to keep them nice and warm and waited patiently.

When we arrived at school on Tuesday morning, we saw that some had hatched during the night! Luckily, we have managed to film another one hatching today. So far all appear to be healthy and the children are looking forward to looking after them and observing how they change.


We've missed you!

Monday 8 March 2021

What a fantastic first day back! It is great to see classrooms occupied by children and to hear voices and laughter echoing around the school once again. All the children have quickly settled back into new rhythms and routines and the buzz of school life is infectious. Thank you to everyone for your continued support ...we can't wait to welcome you all back again tomorrow!



Harvest Festival 2020

Friday 23 October 2020

Everyone at the school just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who made a donation to our Harvest Festival celebrations this week. I’m sure you will all agree, the final rainbow looked fantastic and all the food/donations have now been dropped off at the Harold Hill foodbank - who were extremely surprised and grateful about the amount of food that was delivered to them this morning!

Enjoy your half term!
