Thank you all for another fantastic year here at New Road. We hope you have enjoyed the year as much as we have. We will see you back at school on Tuesday 3rd September to start your next chapter in your school life.

Good luck to all our year 6 pupils who are heading off to their secondary schools.  You will be missed!

Oaks visit Yorkshire Wildlife Park

Last week our Year 1 class had an exciting day at Yorkshire Wildlife Park. After travelling there on minibuses, they had lots of time to look round at all the animals. The weather stayed fine so an outdoor picnic was enjoyed by both pupils and staff.  Look in the gallery for more photos.

Blackpool Zoo with Year 4

Year 4 visited Blackpool Zoo last week.  They all had a great time looking at all the animals and getting to know a few of them! Their favourites were the sea lions and the lemurs. A great day was had by all despite the seagulls trying to take their sandwiches! Visit the gallery to see more photos.


Extreme Reading


Some of our pupils (and staff) have been reading in some unusual places.

There are more photos in our gallery.

Reading Apps!!

Together as a school we are encouraging children to read at home

as often as they can.

There are plenty of free resources, free ebooks and activities linked to your child's reading to encourage them to read at home on a laptop or computer!

Good recommendations are: Oxfordowl.co.uk - RisingstarsUK.com - Topmarks.co.uk
