  • Do you have any frogspawn lurking in your pond? We would love to have some for our classroom so we can observe the lifecycle of a frog.


  • Redcatch Community Garden! We are learning about bees, habitats and will be planting seeds. Parent volunteers are needed for the next two Monday mornings - 22nd April and  29th April.  If it is raining or cold, please ensure your child has a coat.

We will need parent helpers to go with them so please speak to any of the Reception team if you can help with one or more of the sessions. If you're helping please arrive in school at 1.15. We will be back in school by 2.45.

Sponsored Walk to support Friends of Hillcrest


This week, all year groups will be doing a sponsored walk in support of Friends of Hillcrest Primary School. The sponsored walk will take place in Arnos Vale Cemetery during school hours and is a great opportunity for the kids to exercise and have fun whilst raising funds, all of which go towards enriching their education and school experience.


Each year group has set its own challenge:


Reception will do laps from the top path roundabout to the war memorial.


Thank for your support for what we hope will be a very enjoyable and energetic event.


Please donate your child's sponsorship money via this special Goodhub link, remembering to add their name and class.
