We are all unique and special at Grove Primary School and come to school with our own experiences.

 

You will find pictures of us in most of the classes in the Lower School as well as information about our birthdays which we always celebrate as a class. 

 

 

This term, Early Years and Foundation recorded how they settled into their new class and learnt to speak about their emotions/feelings.  

 

Year 1 talked about themselves and learnt the different parts of the body.  They drew their physical characteristics and wrote about what they liked.
