Christmas Messages from our Volunteers

We are lucky enough to be blessed with an army of volunteers who are weekly (or even daily) visitors in our school, helping with everything from reading to maths, worships to running after school clubs, and even doing odd jobs to help keep the school day running smoothly. During the current situation, they haven’t been able to visit, leaving a huge hole in our

Yr 5&6: National Parks, Victorian Schools & a Christmas Tree.

Each Year 5/6 child researched their own choice of National Park and then presented it to the rest of the class.  They worked very hard researching, drafting and confidently presenting their PowerPoints before editing and improving their presentations, following feedback from their peers.


Yr 3&4: PowerPoints, Play Time & Old School Teaching.

The year 3 and 4 children have been working hard on PowerPoint presentations about the Lake District which they then presented to their classmates. The teaching staff were very impressed with how well they did and all the children showed incredible courage by getting up and delivering their presentations.

Remembrance 11th November 2020

Our Remembrance events this year were very different to our usual format but we were determined to honour all those who have given so much to protect our freedom. Each bubble went out at a specific time with the Reverend Lee Gabel and our Bishops Visitor, Mrs. Stothard, leading socially distanced services, on the front lawn of the school.


Oliver makes a Squirrel Feeder

We were delighted to receive these photo’s showing a very grateful squirrel using the Squirrel Feeder Oliver (yr 1) had made with his dad. Mum said that she tried to get him to paint it the same colour as the fence but it had to be green to match the trees. We think he’s done a fantastic job. Well done Oliver.


Private Kirmo stands guard

There have been many annual events, celebrations and traditions that have not been able to happen this year and not being able to have our usual ceremonies around both the Cenotaph and the war memorial in Kirmington, are two of the more poignant ones. This year the KS2 children have painted poppies onto slates which were then taken to the war memorial for display
