Fabric, buttons, ribbon

Hi everyone

Next term EYFS will be learning about “Where do bears live?” for their expedition. We will be creating bears. If any one has any old brown/beige fabric that we could use we would appreciate it. We will need to quarantine anything brought in so would appreciate it before Christmas.

We would also like the following:



tubes from wrapping paper


story character dressing up – Goldilocks particularly

We will be learning about old teddies. If anyone has an old teddy that we could borrow to compare to new teddies we would appreciate it. We will make sure that it is looked after.

Thank you

EYFS team


Craig’s visit to the W557 memorial ❤️

In years 5&6 we have been learning all about the W557 crash over Hatfield Moor that happened during WWII. Craig has been so engaged in this topic that he has regularly gone home to talk to his Grandad about it. Craig and his family decided to visit the memorial as Craig was so desperate to visit the place where the plane had crashed! He was so excited to share his trip in Crew this week and now we have lots of excited children hoping to go and visit too! Thank you for sharing your photos Craig! I’m so pleased you and your Grandad are enjoying our Expedition so much!

Mi Rutina!

¡Hola amigos!

Ever been to Spain or a Spanish speaking country? Would you like to learn some Spanish? Well, Year 8 at XP and XP East have created some beautiful work to help you out!
Students have been learning to describe their morning routine, and how to explain when or where they do something in our expedition “La rutina”. They also recorded their work in Spanish and English, to help you follow the words through sound. Take a look at their very first product!
Inspired? Then use the slides to create your own storyboard, it would be amazing for Year 8 to enjoy and critique your work too!
