Spooky disco day for Halloween

October 2019 - Pumpkin picking

We had a lovely time on our trip today! The sun was shining and we really enjoyed picking our pumpkins! 

September 2019


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 set to come 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!
