Our local PCSO came in to talk to us about how he keeps us all safe and he even let us have a go in his police van! Throughout the year parents are invited in to share in our learning and to find out how they can help us develop.

We really enjoy some of the creative ideas our teachers have for our learning including ‘space writing’ where we wrote underneath the tables! In Reception we are encouraged to develop our independence as learners and our amazing environment allows us to do this.
