Please come to school in your kit on PE days. If it is cold, wear joggers with shorts underneath on Friday.

Please do not wear earrings for PE.



Please make sure you read your child's school reading book with them as often as possible. 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. 


Reading Leader Board

Whenever your child reads at home, they will receive a sticker on the Reading Leader Board. Stickers mean prizes. KEEP READING!


Children may receive home learning work. These activities are for you and your child to practise at home to support their learning. They do not need to be returned to school. 



In the spring term, our topic will be 'Travel & Explorers.' We will be learning about different explorers/pioneers, such as Ernest Shackleton, Christopher Columbus, Amelia Earhart, The Wright Brothers and Sacagawea. We will also be learning about hot deserts and creating self-portraits.


In science, our focus will be on materials. We will learn the names of different materials and what they are used for. We will also learn about the properties and we will sort them in different ways.


We will be reading Lost and Found. We will learn the words and actions to a simple version of this story. We will then write our own version of the story.
