Chef Bev is introducing lots of new meal options this term. The new fruit platters are proving really popular. New main meal options such as the chicken noodles and broccoli are delicious. All our meals are home cooked from fresh local ingredients. Chef has designed her own recipes for the puddings to meet the new lower sugar standards, she doesn't use packet mixes like some schools.

Gardening Club have harvested a lot of produce this September. We have had one of our best crops of potatoes ever. The pumpkins have grown really well over the summer, we will use them for the haloween pumpkin trail and to make soup for the soup share.

On the 1st February the pupil council delivered an ESafety assembly to the whole school. This is the first activity in a term long focus on safeguarding. We will be working with the NSPCC and Health Lincs to give the children a wide range of safeguarding information.


The new Class One has had a makeover during the Christmas holiday. There is a new role play area, writing den and reading zone. A willow tree has sprouted from the ceiling. This is part of our work to make the room more cosy and early years focused. We are gradually removing plastic items and developing a theme of using natural materials.

On the 5th November we were joined by Commonwealth Games tripple jump silver medalist, Laura Samuels.

The children took part in a sponsored fitness circuit with Laura, and then an assmebly where Laura told the children how she became an athelete. It was a really inspirational afternoon.  I would like to thank everyone who sponsored the children we raised £670 which is an amazing amount. This will go towards helping other aspiring young atheletes. The school also recieves a portion of this money and the school council will be given the job of working out how to spend it to promote sport and fitness.

 Soup Day.png

 October 10th. Gardening club soup day. Gardening club organisers Mrs Musgrove and Mrs Olliver came into school and helped children to make soup using our own allotment produce. They made carrot and corriander and leek and potato soup. They also made bread to go with it. Parents and children were able to buy soup and a roll at home time. It was delicious. This is part of our work to achieve the level four RHS gardening award.
