Online Safety


This site gives some great advice on keeping safe online. Please have a look and read the appropriate information for the age of your child.

Year 2 held a Recruitment Day to be WW1 soldiers. Here are a selection of photos from that day.

They took part in many activities throughout the day. In the morning they were measured for their uniform, weighed and checked for their age, some of them lied!!


They had fitness tests carrying a backpack full of kit, drill marched on the playground in the cold and rain. The children also had the chance to look at several artifacts we have in school and some even tried to play the bugle!


Most of all they had a great day and really enjoyed learning all about how hard it was in those days.
