  • Please Use Pelican Crossing on Burlington Road

    date posted: 10/12/19

    Please can we urge parents and carers to use the pelican crossing by the Children's Centre gate when crossing over Burlington Road. We have noticed a few people crossing directly from the Curry's car park especially in the mornings during peak rush hour. Burlington Road is a very busy road which is also a route for double decker buses. Please take extra care when crossing with your children so that they learn sensible and safe road awareness.

  • Hour of Code - week beginning 9 December

    date posted: 01/12/19

    The week beginning 9 December is Computer Science Education Week 2019! In light of this we will be taking part in the 'Hour of Code' during our weekly computing lessons. The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify 'code', to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. 

    "Every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path."

    By clicking the following link you will find all the activities listed by Code: Hour of Code Activities
    If you filter by "Created by" on the drop down menu on the left and choose "Tynker" these seem to be the most suitable for infant children so please feel free to have a look and try at home. 

    Happy Coding!
