Happy New Year!!


This half term we will continue learning all about Antarctica and the Penguins that live there. We will discover all kinds of facts about Antarctica and we will learn about the famous Antarctic explorer Ernest Shackleton. In Science we will look at materials and learn about different kinds of materials. In our Come & See lessons we are learning all about Special People in church and what jobs they do for the parish family. We have been learning the ‘Our Father’ prayer and we are remembering it well! Please find the video of us singing it below!



I am so proud of the children for completing their ‘4 a day’ each morning when they come in to school. They are so sensible and independent. It gives children the chance to wake up their brains as well as develop their ability in maths. So far they have been completing simple number sentences such as; 5+2=. We are going to begin completing number sentences that will mean we have to start counting on and back in our heads. Eg. 15+2=, 17-3=



Thank you for remembering to send water bottles into class on a daily basis. This makes things easier in the classroom as children have access to water whenever they need a drink.



Thank you for remembering to bring book bags into school in each day! We are going to continue changing reading books (providing they have been read at home) on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please continue to listen to your children read every night if possible. It makes such a difference!



The children seem to really be enjoying the games set each week on Abacus Maths. These games are very closely linked with the maths that has been taught for the week. Please remember to complete the game through to the gold level so that it shows as “completed” homework on our system in school.


September 2018


Welcome back to school! We hope that you had a lovely Summer holiday break!

The children are having a brilliant time back at school and are so excited to be in their new classroom. They all look so smart in their shirts and ties!


We have got a busy half-term ahead and our topic is ‘Once upon a time’. We will be exploring three different traditional tales. The children will compare the tales and discover a variety of different versions. Children at the end of the half term will then have a go at writing their own traditional tale. In science we will be learning all about our bodies and how they work. In maths we will be counting, adding and subtracting.


We have attached a curriculum coverage map to our class page so that you can keep up to date on what we are learning in school. I will do my best to keep you updated throughout the half term via the school app – so please make sure you have your notifications on! =)

Please don't hesitate to contact us at the end of the day if you ever have any queries.

Thank you for your continued support and co-operation!
