Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome to our Spring Term 1 Newsletter.

As you can see we have had a very busy start to the year! The children have taken part in lots of activities and thoroughly enjoyed their trip to the zoo.

It was lovely to see so many parents engage in the maths workshop and we look forward to hosting more for you in the next few weeks- so keep your eyes peeled!

Year 1 to 6 had the opportunity to visit Chester Zoo. Every one had  a fabulous day and the children were a credit to our school.


In order to support their Science and English learning, Year 6 went to Chester Zoo to learn about the evolution of different animals and any common features they might share.

All of the Year 1 children loved watching the penguins swimming past them. They learnt that penguins are birds but their wings are to help them swim not fly!

Year 2 had a lovely day at Chester Zoo. We saw lots of different animals and we looked closely at their habitats as this is our science topic this half term. When we sat down to have our lunch we were surrounded by the ducks, they even tried to pinch some sandwiches! We all had very tired feet by the end of the day!
