Outdoor PE is on a Monday 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 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. If you would like any support or advice on helping your child with their reading, please pop in after school to see their teacher.


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. 



This term our topic is 'Travel & Transport'. We will be looking at types of travel have changed over time. We will also learn about the Wright brothers' first flight. In geography, we will be looking at the geographical features of the school and surrounding area. In science, we will focus on describing materials and sorting them by their properties. We will also be designing, making and evaluating our own vehicles.
