Outdoor PE - Monday (white t-shirt, plain black or grey joggers and top, trainers).

Indoor PE - Friday (white t-shirt, black shorts - for some units you will also need trainers, but we will let you know about this).

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 autumn term, our topic will be 'Castles.' We will be learning about the features of the castles, why they were built and who lived there. We will also look at how life was different in the past, and we will create our own castles.


In science, our focus will be on animals. We will learn about mammals, reptiles, birds, amphibians and fish. We will compare their structures, and sort toy animals into these groups.

This a nice song to help with this.

We will also look at carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.


We will be reading The Egg by M. P. Robertson. Please don't read this book beforehand as it will spoil the surprise.
