We always try our best and never give up even when things get a bit tricky!

Don't forget...our fantastic residential visit to Beaumanor Hall is booked for 28-29th June 2018!

We can't wait for some outdoor and adventurous fun!

Meeting for parents - Tuesday 8th May (after school) - come and find out more about our visit and meet one of the instructors from the Outdoor Learning centre!

Mrs Humphreys and Mrs Ince are really impressed by the children in Mighty Oaks that continue their learning at home. Ways you can do this are:

  • Practising your spellings
    Reading at least 3 times a week
  • Completing your homework and handing it in on time (Wednesdays)
  • Practising your times tables
  • Spending time on Mathletics

Here are some highlights from our Autumn term topic - Lights, Camera, Action!

We've even composed music!   Can you hear our dancing fairies, huntsmen, lovers' theme, wind and braying of Bottom in our take on Mendlessohn's Midsummer Night's Dream Overture?
