Highlight of the Week

Year 1 Tennis

Today Knightsbridge class had their introduction to Racket sports. They had great fun playing racket drop and bounce and swipe in the sun, building confidence with a bat and ball.


EYFS, learning all about Dinosaurs 


The children in EYFS have been learning about dinosaurs. We are so impressed with what they have been doing. They have used their hand-prints to make their own dinosaurs. They have written instructions about how to grow their very own dinosaur . The children have found out facts including the difference herbivores and carnivores. In Maths the children have been measuring prints from different types of dinosaurs using non standard units, eg. cubes, as well as centimetre rulers.

Wow! A dinosaur came to visit Forres primary school.

Voice in a Million

Forres choir were very proud to attend 'Voice in a million' at Wembley on Thursday 21st March. They had a great time singing along to their favourite songs. 

Science Week Highlights

The children explored journeys during science day. They looked at the various daily journeys that occur around us without noticing.

The children enjoyed completing several experiments, ranging from paper aeroplane racing, fruit printing and exploring plastics in the ocean.

All of the children thoroughly enjoyed their day and can now notice the journeys that happen around them. 



Year 6 Cycle Training


Last week pupils from Year 6 had the opportunity for participate in a Level 1 and Level 2 Cycle Training course, designed to equip children with the required skills and confidence to ride their bikes safely on the roads. After a week consisting of a bicycle check and lots of time putting their new new skills to the test we are pleased to announce that all pupils passed their Level 1 and Level 2 award. 


Well done to all pupils that participated in the training and a massive thank you to the instructors Mel and Eric for all their hard work and patience. We look forward to offering this opportunity to Year 6 pupils again next year.

Forres Choir

Forres choir sang beautifully on Sunday 25th November at the Spotlight Theatre, Hoddesdon. We look forward to hearing them sing again at The Spotlight Christmas concert this Wednesday 28th November.

Writing Week

This week we made an interesting discovery of bones in our outdoor classroom. Each class has had the opportunity to go outside and investigate the reason for their sudden appearance. Children had a wonderful time writing in many different genres - descriptive writing in Ks1, newspaper reports in Yr3 and 4, and narrative writing in Year 5 and 6. The writing outcomes from every class have been fantastic and the children had an opportunity to share their work with the whole school.

Macmillan Coffee and cake morning

On Friday 12th October 2018 children from Forres Primary School went to The John Warner secondary school to help them support this worthy cause.
