The children joined in with a variety of tennis activities and were competing against another school, despite coming runners up the children all worked super hard as a school. We are very proud […]


Today, we used a wide variety of Forest School skills to prepare and cook dampers. Delicious!  


Fantastic effort everyone. Sweet dreams!!

Coming to our “Senses”

Today in Forest School we used all of our senses to explore our environment. We searched high and low for objects that smell, look, sound and feel good or interesting.

Clovelly Trip

We had a fantastic time on our trip to Clovelly. Neil (Scarlett’s Dad) showed us all around the lifeboat station and told us about the lifeboat service. We had a great picnic on the slipway and a delicious ice cream before we climbed back up the hill. At the pottery, we all sat at the […]


This week in Forest School we went on a forest animal hunt. We then built dens for them. Boris the Bear was very pleased with his new home and was happy to share it with us all.  

Forest School Fun

Ask your child if they can demonstrate to you, or teach you how to do it.   We will continue with Forest School, on Thursday afternoons, after half […]

Songs in the Church

Stickman Houses

Royal Cake

Today we had a very special delivery from Princess Meghan. Some wedding cake! Last week we all wrote to her to wish her luck on her wedding day. She wrote back to us, sent us a lovely photo, and also sent us some cake.

Royal Wedding Celebrations

This week we have linked our learning to tomorrow’s royal wedding. We have designed dresses, made flags, received a letter from the queen and written to Harry and Meghan. We even experimented to discover which material would be best to make an umbrella for Meghan, in case it rains.  

Greator Rocks

Our final few pictures are of our descent down Greator Rocks. Hope you enjoyed your trip everyone!

Final Day at Pixies Holt

After a final morning of den building and marshmallow toasting our tired little pixies are on the way home. Our children have worked tirelessly and behaved impeccably throughout the week. See you soon.
