This week we have had a series of Tour de France activities taking place

in school with baking

and making as well as

research by the older children. Nursery, in particular, had a fabulous time taking part in our mini Tour de France morning. The children raced against each other on their bikes in a knock out tournament leading to a grand final. Congratulations to Harvey Robinson our winner, Max Okezie who came second and Ezrah Wooding who was third. !

Sunday is the big day and we hope all the children will get some chance to be part of this once in a lifetime event

Gardening Goodies and Busy Bees

We are delighted with our bumper crop! Gardening club were very busy on Friday harvesting a crop of onions, runner beans, marrows and potatoes. We have taken our vegetables to the school kitchen and hope to see them on the menu very soon.


Bee club continues to be a success with the children harvesting some good quality honey and learning all about the life of bees

Welcome Back

Welcome back to the new academic year at Cross Lane Primary School and I hope that you all have had a great summer holiday. I am writing to introduce myself as Cross Lane's new Headteacher and to tell you how much I am looking forward to working for you and your children in the coming years.      Miss Vivien Watson


Mark Jackson, our Health and Safety Governor visited school last Friday for a site walk and met with the children and he was delighted with what he saw. Mark will be at the school gates most Friday mornings so please feel free to stop and have a chat with him.

Woodland Days

Tinderwood Trust, which is working with us to develop the use of our woodland is back in again this term, working hard with children in the wood. Children will be aware and have been asked to bring in suitable clothing on Thursdays when they are in the wood. As you can see the staff are as enthusiastic as the children are to be in the woodland again.

New Start

The new school year is well and truly underway with the children settling in to their new classes and routine. The positive atmosphere around the school is wonderful to feel.


We are pleased to welcome our new sports coaches for the year Zac and Sean. They are running a variety of after school clubs which started last week.
