News and Events

Welcome to our News and Events Section! 

There's a lot going on at Mrs Bland's!  To help stay organised we offer our School Planner (Parents section) to show a list of events for the whole school year, we also have our table of Term Dates (Our school section) to confirm when school is open/closed and finally our Calender of Events (News and Events section) to have a monthly view of what's ahead.  The menu offers fantastic news on our stars of the week page, letters to parents and all our current newsletters.

World Book Day March 2024

Everyone had a fantastic time dressing up as their favourite storybook character for World Book Day.  Lots of laughter from children and staff, and with a lot of ingenious thinking 'outside the box', the costumes were brilliant and made for a very colourful day in school.

Acorns Nursery Pantomime visit December 2023
