  • Year 4 PGL Trip

    Published 24/05/24

    From the 15th to the 17th May, Year 4 students from Tannery Drift First School embarked on a fun-packed residential trip to Caythorpe Court in Lincolnshire. During their visit they threw themselves into the activities come rain or shine, including zip-lining, high ropes activities, giant swing, orienteering, archery, fencing and survival skills. Some of the activities required the children to challenge themselves by trying things that they hadn’t done before, Emilija said, ‘So many of us faced our fears’, this included the staff who also joined in with the activities, some of which took place at height!

    The children were a credit to themselves and the school, and it was a wonderful way to develop their confidence and foster independence ahead of the transition to their new schools in September.  

    The children had a wonderful time, with Omar commenting that ‘We had the best time ever at PGL and want to go back already.’

    Having heard all about the trip, children in Year 3 are already excited for their visit next year!

  • Paddington Bear visits Reception

    Published 01/03/24

    This week in Reception, we had a mystery to solve. The children found a suitcase in the classroom and had to work out who had left it there. The next day the mysterious visitor arrived, Paddington Bear. The children have helped to write name tags for
    Paddington, taught him how to look after himself and helped to write a shopping list so that he could make some more sandwiches. As a reward the children got to make some sandwiches too. They chose their topping and spread this themselves before enjoying these for snack.

  • New Wall Art

    Published 16/02/24

    Earlier this term some areas of the school were given a refresh with new wall art. The Rainbow Room and the Reception classroom book area have both been given a woodland feel, while the under the sea theme has been continued further around the dining room.

    The children have decided to rename the Rainbow Room which will now be called, perhaps unsurprisingly, the Woodland Room!

    With thanks to the Friend of Tannery Drift who have funded part of this project. We are sure you will agree that the artwork makes for a wonderful space for the children.
