Amazing Africa!

Ladybird Class is loving learning all about Africa! We have been investigating what it is like for a child in Kenya, looking at physical and human features of the country, weaving Africa-style mats, tasting different African fruit and creating beautiful African plains-themed silhouette paintings. Today we looked at volcanoes. The children loved creating a volcano that would erupt by experimenting with different chemicals. They have created their own clay volcanoes which will be coming home soon- please look out for ‘volcano experiment instructions’ which will also be in book bags for home experimentation!

Enjoy seeing the children’s learning so far in this topic:



beautiful, careful weaving and exploring fruit that grows in Africa! Can you spot the children’s fantastic African silhouette pictures? They learnt how to blend colour to create an interesting sunset.

Everybody is in suspense as the volcano erupts!

We all had a lovely time at our Disco last week.  Many thanks to our wonderful PTFA for organising such a successful evening!



A message from our Head of School


My name is Emma Morgan and I am delighted to welcome you to our school.  I was appointed as Head of School in September 2015 at a very exciting transition point in the school’s journey.  We have recently joined together with two local primary schools to become Saturn Education Trust, a multi-academy trust, and although only in its infancy, we have already benefited from sharing ideas and expertise with the other schools.

I am passionate about ensuring a well-rounded and inclusive primary curriculum for your children involving both academic excellence and emotional well-being.

I have lived in Dorset for the past 13 years with my husband and two children (and two dogs and two cats!).

Please do say hello in the playground or make an appointment to come and see me should you wish a more formal meeting.  I look forward to getting to know everyone and building on the school’s already excellent achievements.
