Belonging, Believing, Building a Future

Year 6 Camp

The Year 6s had a wonderful night, camping out on the school field. After putting up the tents and eating tea, they had lovely walk and then returned for a barbecue. The evening ended with music around the camp fire, provided by Emily and Zac and then s'mores and hot chocolate before bed. Many great memories were made!

Please go to the gallery to see more photos of the event.



The Year 6s  had the opportunity to develop their cycling skills and confidence by taking part in the government-recognised training, ‘Bikeability’. Over the course of two days the children learnt to ride their bikes safely on single-lane roads and simple junctions. We really hope that our children understand the benefits of cycling to them and the environment and will continue to practice their new skills.

Adventure Plus 2021

The Years 6s had a wonderful day with Adventure Plus. They spent the morning on the river Thames, canoeing from Grafton to Radcot and then learnt to lunge, parry and riposte during an afternoon of fencing.

Easter Bonnet Parade 2021

The children’s Easter bonnets were a marvellous sight. It was a lovely afternoon when the children paraded around the village displaying their bonnets for all to see. Thanks to everyone in the village who came out to see the children and the judges who chose a ‘best on parade’ bonnets from each class.


Comic Relief 2021

This year it never felt more important to have some fun and raise money to support people living incredibly tough lives. All the children dressed as superheroes, real or imagined, and made a donation to Comic Relief raising a wonderful £211. Thank you to Poppy Sinclair who ran a special Comic Relief Treasure Hunt and raised an additional £100 for this great charity.

Christingle 2020

Reverend MacInnes and Reverend Margot led the Christingle assemblies in the last week of the term. As the candles were lit the children reflected on the meaning of the Christingle and prayed for peace this Christmas.


Experience Christmas

All the children visited ‘The Experience Christmas’ at St Peter’s Church. They explored the Christmas Story by taking part in a range of activities linked to the story. This was a wonderful opportunity for children and staff to think about and reflect on the Christmas story leading up to the birth of Jesus.


Christmas Dinner 2020

Thank you to Stewart and Jemma and all the staff at The Plough for our wonderful Christmas dinner. The children and staff all thoroughly enjoyed this special occasion.


Decorating the Christmas Tree

The children in Cygnus Class had the very important job of decorating the Christmas Tree. They thought very carefully about where to hang the decorations and were delighted to see the reult when we turned the lights on. What a beautiful Christmas tree!

The whole school gathered at the war memorial for two minutes silence and prayers on Armistice Day. It was lovely that villagers joined us to mark this special occasion. Mrs Morris led the readings and Cygnus class carried their wreath.

Happy Mothering Sunday

The St Peter's Choir had been working hard with Catrin Russ composing an original song to perform for Mother's Day. Unfortunately the choir were unable to perform it at the planned Mothering Sunday Service.

The choir were however, given the opportunity to perform I Love My Mum to fellow students and staff and their performance was recorded for St Peter's mums to listen to!

Happy Mothering Sunday.

All of the children shone brightly in this year’s Nativity, 'I'm gonna shine!'. What wonderful performances they gave, with such enthusiastic singing and acting.
