The Foxes get cooking!

This week, we have been busy making pizza stars in the Year 1 Foxes. We rolled the dough, prepared the ingredients and popped them into the oven.

As we designed our pizzas, we carefully thought about where each ingredient had come from.

Our Parish Church

Thank you so much to Father David for making Year 4 so welcome at St John’s, Cudworth. We learned about the Christian faith and the importance of Lent and Easter for Christians. Thanks to Father David for explaining about tolerance and respect for other faiths- something that is close to our hearts at the moment.

Superstar Alert 

This Daisy is AMAZING! She is fantastic at listening for first sounds. She drew her own tooth, used excellent cutting skills and then told me that it begins with the ‘t’ and practised saying the pure sound perfectly.
