St Matthew's Latest

The new office is open!

We are delighted to announce that the building work to create a new office/reception area is complete! Although there is still some on-going work, the office is now open and ready for business.  We are thrilled with the outcome of this project which will have such a positive impact on our school.  Visitors will now be welcomed through the red doors from Old Pye Street where they will enter a glazed porch towards the school office.

Year 2 Gardeners

Year 2 have been learning about plants and animals during term 4. They planted several different seeds and were checking that they had the right conditions to grow healthily. The seeds sprouted and the plants were beginning to grow.  Miss Mainwaring-Burton decided that as the children have been incredibly diligent and responsible, it would be lovely for them to continue to watch and help them to grow at home during the Easter holidays! The children can bring the plants back to school after the holidays so that the whole class can look at changes.  If they are healthy and strong enough, they can be re-planted in the garden in the summer term.
