Nursery pet visit

Over the past couple of weeks, the Nursery children have been finding out about Pets and how we look after them. Last Friday we were very excited to get a visit from Ronnie the rabbit and Maliki the Amazon King snake. Both pets were very well behaved and the children were able to hold the rabbit and ask questions about the snake. We would like to say a big thank you to Erin for bringing in Ronnie and Ms Green for telling us lots of interesting facts about Maliki. We had a great time.


Proposed strike action

You may have heard on the national news about the proposed plans for strike action from some NEU teachers later this term. Please be assured that I am working with the union representatives within the federation and have a meeting scheduled for tomorrow after school. It is unlikely that I will have any detail to share with you until next week but be assured that we will be back in touch as soon as we can.

Yours sincerely

Sammy Crook

Head of Federation

Year 3 Meerkat visit

Year  3 had a lovely afternoon on Tuesday with a visit from Rascal the Meerkat with the zoo keepers from Exmoor Zoo. There were lots of links made to our book, Meerkat Mail that we are studying in English. We were told all about how meerkats have adapted to their environment and how they work together to survive in the wild. Some of Rascal’s friends came with him, a scorpion which is a meerkat’s prey and a snake that is a meerkat’s predator . The children had the opportunity to look at all the animals closely and have a little stroke with Rascal. It has brought our book to life and will inspire us in our writing.
