World Book Day 2019

To celebrate World Book Day, the Academy will be reading the book ‘The Lost Words’.  Every class will research their own word that has been lost over time and from this create lots of exciting writing and art pieces around this throughout the week.

Our Academy was full of story characters on the 7th March. If you would like to find out more about World Book Day visit

It s-now joke

The reception children were very excited when it started to snow on Friday. They went outside to explore the snow and found that their water tray had frozen. They made snow balls and tried to catch snow on their hands. They also found some icicles.

Welcome back!

The Academy is open to all our children on Tuesday 8th January 2019 at normal time.

Christmas Jumper!

On Friday 21st December (last day of term). children are invited to wear their silliest, most sparkling or cosiest Christmas jumpers and asked to make a donation of £1 to help support the Save the Children charity.  

You do not need to spend money on purchasing a jumper to take part – just get your child to decorate an old or plain jumper with tinsel, baubles or homemade snowflakes to create a unique Christmas outfit.

There will be a special mention on our website and Facebook page for those wearing the wackiest jumper!

Trussell Trust Foodbank Appeal
