  • 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.

Thank you for everyone who made a donation to the NSPCC.

  • Number Day - Friday 2nd February 2024

    Published 25/01/24

    Friday 2nd February is NSPCC Number Day!  Pupils are asked to wear an item of clothing with a number on it (e.g. football shirt, cap, number badges) or get even more creative by dressing in a maths - or numbers - themed outfit (e.g. as a clock).

    To help raise money for the NSPCC we are asking for a suggested donation of £1 for taking part and would really appreciate any extra donations to sponsor the range of activities that the children will take part in on the day. You can donate by visiting the Just Giving page: Tannery Drift First School is fundraising for NSPCC (justgiving.com)
