Snapshot of the week

This term year 1’s topic is Kings and Queens. We have had a fantastic start to our topic learning about Queen Elizabeth I, Queen Victoria and King Charles III. Year 1 have enjoyed sequencing events, sorting facts in a Venn diagram and creating beautiful crowns.

Snap Shot of the Week

Year 3

Year 3 have had a fantastic introduction to their new topic ‘Kingdom of the Pharaohs’ this week. After learning all about what life was like for Ancient Egyptian people, they had some time to explore some different texts from our class library – they are such curious historians that we just didn’t have enough time to explore all of their questions and ideas! Thank goodness we have next week to learn some more!

Year 5

Last term we had a fantastic time learning about our planet in our topic Active Earth. Take a look at some our work! We learnt about the layers of the Earth, how volcanoes form and what happens when they explode, and what to do in an earthquake. 

Up coming Events

Friday Night Cricket


I am pleased to announce that the ECB have finally opened up registration for the All Stars and Dynamos cricket programs that we are running on a Friday night for children in school years Reception to Year 3 (All Stars) and Year 4 (Dynamos).

Please register your children on the links below:

All Stars – Reception to Year 3 Children –

Dynamos – Year 4 Children

Each child will receive a personalised T-Shirt. Unfortunately, the ECB have been unable to offer the equipment (bat, ball & bag) this year due to manufacturing issues.

The courses officially start on an 8 week program from the 10th May however as with the wider Junior program at Colwall , we will run the sessions from Friday 26th April for the duration of the Summer Term concluding the 19th July. This is an extra 5 evenings of cricket for your children to enjoy.

As always, we need parents to support the club and anyone willing to offer support to the coaches will receive a free beer and burger each Friday for your support. Please contact me directly if you are able to help in any capacity whether it be throwing a ball, encouraging the children, helping with registration etc. Each week we need around 10 grown ups to ensure the sessions are run smoothly and safely. Feel free to reach out to come and give it a try.

We look forward to hopefully welcoming you and your children on Friday evenings.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me on

I look forward to the warm sunny Friday evenings returning!
