Outdoor PE is on a Wednesday afternoon. Children will need a plain white t-shirt, plain black or grey tracksuit bottoms, a plain black or grey tracksuit top/sweatshirt, and trainers. Indoor PE is on a Friday Morning. Children will need a plain white t-shirt and plain black shorts. Please leave their P.E. kit in school when possible because P.E. times may sometimes change. Please write your child's name in all their kit!



Please make sure you read your child's school reading book with them for at least 10 minutes per day. Reading is a 'building block' on which much of their other learning rests, and regular reading at home makes a huge difference in the classroom. If you would like any support or advice on helping your child with their reading, please pop in after school to see their teacher.


Children will receive spellings to learn at home every Friday and they will be tested on these words the following week. Children are also expected to go on Times Table Rockstars at least once a week. Please let your child's teacher know if you do not have access to the app at home. 



This term our topic is the seaside. We will be learning about what the seaside is, where it is found and what human and physical features we might see at the seaside. As part of this topic we will also be learning about Grace Darling and her great lifeboat rescue, what seasides were like in the past and making our own clay sea creatures. It is going to be great fun, especially when we visit Bridlington ourselves in July!

17/1/8 Science: We learnt about the difference between amphibians and reptiles. Then we chose to make either a lizards, crocodile or iguana using play dough, to describe their features. Some of our models were amazing.

4/1/18 Masai Necklaces. We made some fabulous necklaces in the style of the Masai, as part of our African Hook Day for our new topic.
