It’s fantastic to have a full class again and so lovely to see some familiar faces again after a long time off! We have been really impressed with the way the children have settled back in, particularly our new Year 3s.

In our first few days we have been thinking about our school and what it means to us. On Thursday, we looked back at what the school might have been like when it first began in 1862 (when children were actually taught at the village school as the school building wasn’t built until 30 years later. We compared some of the rules and attitudes from that time to the present day and decided that we preferred our current ‘Golden Rules’ which are far more positive and respectful to children and adults alike!

In the afternoons we have been learning different techniques for creating interesting lines and marks and have been creating our own Owls artwork which we hope to display. On behalf of Mrs Fowler and myself, I’d also like to say a huge thank you for the generous gifts we received at the end of last summer.
