I hope you have all had a wonderful break and your children are ready for what promises to be a busy and fun-filled term!

Updates will also appear on Twitter, so please follow me:


If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please come and see me in school.

Mrs Pollard

Doves have been enjoying their home learning this week. Some amazing writing, drawing and outdoor learning! From using capital letters to name toys to completing the daily Lego challenge - the families have embraced the opportunity to learn together.

Well done everyone!

I hope everyone is well and adjusting to this change to the way we are learning.

I thought I would start our next class novel and post a few pages each day so we continue to enjoy reading together!


It is important to continue to keep active at this time.

Here are a few ideas and websites to help keep the whole family active!

Our creative curriculum for Spring 2 is... Shiver and Sizzle.

'If you can be anything in this world, be kind.'

Doves have been thinking about kindness and how we can make a difference by using kind words and gestures. Throughout Lent, Mrs Thornber and myself are looking out for children who carry out random acts of kindness. They will be awarded a Dove on our class kindness tree.

Easter Praise

Year 1 will be performing their performance of Easter Praise on Thursday 2nd April, at 2pm and 6pm in church. They have worked hard to learn their lines and the songs, so please join us if you can as we are sure it will be an amazing celebration!


The songs and words are available here if your child would like to sing them at home!

It's Jesus

Show me the money

Remember Me

I won't deny you.

Come on Peter

Easter Praise

On Friday 28th February, Key Stage 1 embarked on a trip to Skipton Castle. It was a cold, wet day, but the Doves, Eagles and Falcons embraced the opportunity to explore this wonderful place. It was a memorable day and the children were happy to recount their adventure once we returned to school!

Homework for Doves during Spring 2 term can be found here.

Our creative curriculum topic for Spring 1 is..... Dungeons and Dragons.

Doves enjoyed creating images based on Paul Klee's artwork...

Computing - Capturing Autumn Images

We took our computing learning outside, using our iPads to capture signs of autumn in our school wood, and what a fun time we had!  

We developed photography skills such as zooming in and holding our iPads very still to prevent the image being blurred. We also learned how to review the images we took and to delete ones that we didn't want to keep.

Blessed with beautiful, late autumn sunshine and the wonderful nature within our school grounds, we were able to capture the season in its golden splendour!

Take a look at the slideshow of the fabulous images we took.

We think you'll agree that we have some budding, young photographers in Doves Class!
