April 3rd 2020

 Rokesly Infant and Nursery school is closed to all but a small number of children. School staff are working on a rota to look after a group of children whose parents are essential workers.

During this time of National school closure, we think it is important to stay in touch, give you updates, and also give your child tasks and activities to support their learning at home.

School Memories Week

Theme Week October 2019

Thank you to all our lovely parents and family members who came in to school to share their school memories with the children.

The children also learned about history beyond living memory with trips to Bruce Castle Museum. We also had Victorian classrooms, country dancing and traditional games here in school. It was a lot of fun and we hope the week inspired some school memories for the children to cherish when they are older.
