Students with headteacher

Year 1

20th March 2020

Following on from our theme of plants and growing things, we have listened to and written the story of the Enormous Turnip. We are now starting to check our work for capital letters and full stops too. We have been looking for signs of spring and noticing the flowers and trees around our school. We can label the stem, leaf, roots and flower of a plant. We have been talking about which plants we eat and looking closely at celery, cauliflower, peppers, potatoes and carrots to see where they grow and which parts of the plant it is we are eating. We have looked closely at the work of Georgia O’Keeffe who painted magnified flowers and we have tried to replicate her style of painting. They look beautiful! In Maths we have been rolling dice and spinning number spinners in order to count on or back from the largest number. Crossing the tens boundary is a challenge for some of us.

We are expanding to GCSE!

Parents have told us they need a quality senior school alternative, so from September 2021, pupils already at Copthorne or joining in Year 7 will be able to stay with us to Year 11. Our first GCSE exams will take place in 2026. 

Join us at our next Virtual Open Morning or read about our expansion to find out more.
