Welcome back everyone!  It's great to have everyone back in. This term we are working on World War Two. We'll be looking at how the war started, how it changed Britain and what life was like on the home front.  We've already made our own evacuee labels and planned how we'd pack our suitcases.  We went on a now>press>play adventure in WW2 and built our own mini Anderson shelters.  We will also be looking at how we can look after our minds, particularly after lockdown.  In science, we are learning about light and its properties. 


Key Information:


Please can you make sure that your child reads to you at least twice a week and sign their reading book to show that this has happened. As a reward for this, children will get stickers on our reading leader boards. 



Outdoor PE: Wednesday

Indoor PE: Friday


Please note: Children should come to school in their PE kits on PE days.  They will spend all day in these so they do not need to bring school uniforms.



Homework will be set on a Friday and will consist of times tables rockstars, spelling and reading. We strongly recommend that you encourage children to complete it as it is extremely important in their learning journey. 


Times Tables Rockstars

Each child has an account that they can access at home - there is also a 'Times tables Rockstars' app that you can download to your phone or tablet. It has been proven that those children who use these perform better in school and In tests.
