Scratch Coding

During the term, Sycamore and Beech Class have been learning to code using Scratch. Below is a link for a guide to help students and parents learn how to code over the coming festive break.


Scratch – First Steps combines colourful graphics with clear step by step instructions and is designed to get young people up and running with coding. It’s good for complete beginners as well as anyone who needs a refresher on the basics. The Guide is free to download and use anywhere, anytime you like, so just go to and start coding! 

The Scratch programming language is fun and easy to use but also surprisingly powerful. It’s free, runs on most kinds of computer and supports the KS2 computing curriculum.

The Knotted Project

This year we teamed up with Duke Theatre to create a drama piece about Christmas 2020! We had great fun!

Reindeer Dash

We donned our antlers and ran round our track to raise money for St John’s Hospice!

Snowman Biscuits

In the run up to Christmas we have been taking part in many activities. We especially enjoyed making our melted snowman biscuits – and eating them!
