Transition Events

Term 4

On Tuesday 26th March, the Year 2 children visited North Borough to learn about the Romans and have a look at some of the work the Year 3 children have produced. We were so impressed to see some fantastic models and mosaic work as well as the great non-chronological reports the children have written which included interesting Roman facts.

Term 2

We had a fantastic morning on Friday 17th November when Year 2 visited North Borough for their first transition event. Year 3 created a Stone Age Museum for the Year 2s to visit. The Year 3 children have been very busy creating fantastic art work and Stone Age settlements to share with Year 2.

Arriving at school


Your journey into North Borough if you're    visiting the school office.



You'll most likely see Mrs Borland in the office. She is very friendly and can help you with lots of things, including school dinners, uniform or finding out about clubs. 



This will be your normal route into school in the morning once you have settled in. You can say goodbye to your adult at the gate and come into school with your friends. Miss Taylor will be waiting at the door for you with her very smiley face. 


Our Classrooms


Here are our Year 3 classrooms. They were all named after famous landmarks this year but will have new names next year. 

Can you spot the Roman shields the children made this year?

All of the Year 3 classrooms are next to each other. 

Around the School



Here is our school hall. We meet in here for assemblies and have lunch in here.


This is our lovely library. You will get to borrow a book from here each week. 

This is the Thrive hut. Miss Taylor works in here and does activities with children. 

Our Outdoor Areas


This is the top playground. This is where you can spend some of your time during breaktime and lunchtime. We have markings on this playground to help you run, walk or skip the Daily Mile

This is the quiet area. The Nurture team are in this area to help with any problems you may have on the playground. This is a nice , quiet shady spot to relax in, especially on sunny days.



This part of the playground is the outdoor classroom where you may spend time with your teacher, learning outdoors. You'll also find our outdoor gym and trim trail which can be played on at breaktime and lunchtime. You can also see the middle and bottom playground here. This is where you can play sports with an adult at breaktime and lunchtime. 



Here is the journey you will take to go down onto the school field. 



We are so lucky to have such a large school field! This is where we play lots of sports and enjoy lunchtimes in the summer.
