Welcome to Goldfinch Class


Welcome back! We hope that you enjoyed your break and are ready for another busy and exciting term. We can’t wait to carry on our learning journey together.


This term our topic is ‘Pirates Ahoy!'

Being Active!

Between now and the end of term your child will bring home a bean bag back pack with games in it. This is part of a new scheme to support children in being more active at home. It focuses on hand-eye co-ordination, throwing to a target and moving successfully around a space. It comes with a book of activities for you to do together, which includes healthy eating. Each pack comes with a log book to record what you and your child have done at home.

Forest School


Goldfinch have Forest School in terms 1 and 4.


Volunteers needed



We really welcome parent volunteers to come into school to listen to readers. Even if you can only spare half an hour, this time will be very valuable to the children.
