The Kirkwood Reindeer Run

We were delighted to support The Kirkwood Reindeer Run.  Children and staff could come in their Christmas Jumpers and had to complete 10 laps of the school playground to help Santa deliver presents to countries all over the world in return for sponsorships.  We were overwhelmed by the support from our families and are sure Kirkwood Hospice will be thrilled by the amount raised.  Thank you to everyone who sponsored our children.

All our children in school have created a heart with a message for a resident in a local care home to help cheer them up over the festive period.

As artists, our year 1 children have developed techniques in colour mixing while using paint to create pieces of work in the style of artist Mark Rothko.

Sorting Animals

Our Year 1 Scientists have bene busy demonstrating their knowledge of animals by sorting them into groups. They had to use their observational skills and understanding of the different groups to work as a team to group them correctly.


As part of their topic on toys Year 1 children have been historians. Using their research skills, combined with science knowledge of materials they have explored the toys. Using historical vocabulary they have described the toys and created an historical timeline.

She worked with every class to develop their Sports Hall Athletics Skills. The children had their skills scored and will be entered into a virtual competition with other schools in the partnership.
Maybe we will have some partnership champions?!
