🚨 BREAKING NEWS! 🚨 The naughty pea has taken over the nursery garden… if you catch any stray peas, please contact nursery. Thank you!


For their snack this morning, nursery class enjoyed some lettuce they they have grown themselves in the garden!


The eco club members had a great time at the eco conference. They participated in lots of activities and learnt lots about the importance of pollinators. Did you know that hummingbirds play a vital role in the pollination of many different species of plant life?!


The eco club members were thrilled to receive their green flag. They were proud to hang it and celebrated with some gardening in the sun!


Is it a bird? Is it a plane? NO! It’s the super kids! Calling all superheroes to class on Monday… 🦸‍♂️🦸‍♀️

YAAAY! We did it! A HUGE thank you to our eco committee for their efforts in helping us achieve our very first Eco Schools Green Flag! Caring for our planet is everyone’s responsibility. We would also like to thank each and every student for participating.


We had a wonderful time meeting our new animal friends. We met Winston the bearded dragon, Malcolm the leopard gecko, Neville the snake, Marvin the giant African land snail, Remy the hamster and Gertrude the wide mouthed tree frog!


Nursery class are definitely passing through an enclosing play schema! This is when they like to enclose themselves and toys in buildings and boxes. Through this schema they are showing an interest in shape and space!


A huge THANK YOU to our Buntingford PTA for providing us with our caterpillars. We have loved watching them transform into butterflies! KS1 & KS2 enjoyed releasing theirs. EYFS are still waiting for a few to emerge ☺️ 🦋

Staff Wellbeing lunch is ready - we love how brilliant our staff are here! Thank you for all that you do for our children.


KS2 have really enjoyed thinking about the wonderful community we have in Buntingford. The children have used their Computing skills to create a summary of their work.


Really proud of our school choir performing, ‘This is Me,’ at our Easter assembly.


We have been so lucky to have had a healthy foods workshop run by Aspens. We learnt about tasty, healthy snacks and all the good they do for our bodies. We made a fruit and vegetable smoothly, which was delicious, healthy and sweet! We are allowed sweet treats, just not too many!


We have been learning about the importance of our wonderful community in Buntingford in our PSHE lessons recently. Year 3 and 4 have decided to get creative to make some Easter cards and gifts for our friends Layston Grove Care Home
