Welcome back to school for the start of a brand new year.

We have a busy term ahead of us with lots of fun and challenging things to look forward to. Amongst other things, we will be helping our environment by planting trees in Panshanger Park, developing our tag rugby skills with Saracens and celebrating World Book Day.

Please check our class page regularly for photographs of what we have been getting up to in class.

I wish you all a happy and peaceful new year.

Autumn Class Bulletin

Hello Elm class, what a beautiful snowy scene there is to greet us this morning.

As you will have heard, school is closed today so I have posted some home learning activities for you to have a go at on our class page below. Some of the activities involve being out and enjoying the snow, whilst some you can do at home in the warm.

If you'd like to send photos of what you get up to in the snow, I'd love to see them. Please email them to 


Enjoy the snow and stay safe.
