Monday 17th May
Can you join hundreds of thousands of children all over the country to celebrate cleaner air, safer streets and healthier lifestyles? All you need to do to get involved is travel in an active way all this week.
Why not take a look at nature around you as you travel and think about what you can hear and see on your way?
You can walk, cycle, scoot... Whatever you want- just leave the car at home.
Are you ready?... Let's go!

Friday is upon us again.
After another busy week we would like to say thank you to those who are supporting the school and inparticular the kind comments and support for the Y2 team. We know you are trying your very best to work at home and comming into school only when neccesary and we know it is not easy. As teachers we have children too who are also working from home and trying to stay safe in the knowledge that their friends and parents are trying their best to support those who need them. We take great pride and comfort in knowing you are supporting each other, key workers but inparticular us as teachers and most importantly, as parents.
We remain amazed at the efforts taking place remotely. We know times are difficult and that we, like you, would love to be back in school together but for now we are trying to be the best we can be for each other in the best way we can.
Keep being amazing, stay strong and remember we are here to help.
Let's not forget, we are all human, so have a positive and restful time together this weekend. Be a familiy in whatever form that may take.
See you next week.
