Term 1

This term our topic is All Around the World. During this topic we will be learning about the continents of the world, particularly the continent of Europe. We will also be reading lots of tales from around the world, including folk tales, myth tales and legends. We will be having lots of fun creating work inspired by artists around the world and are even hoping to make our very own boomerangs in DT! Keep on checking our website for photos of our work.   


Due to the current situation with regards to the Coronavirus, children are asked to come to school in their PE kits on relevant days. 


Mr Anderson's class have PE on Thursdays.

Mr Blackton's class have PE on Fridays. 


Please ensure that your child wears appropriate clothes, including trainers, jogging trousers/leggings, t-shirt and jumper. 


Children will be provided with weekly homework. This may include maths based activities, writing activities and/or other activities relating to the curriculum. We are currently in the process of setting up an online learning platform for each child. Children will be given a 'Seesaw' login shortly and details will be sent home informing parents/carers as to how to set this up. Home reading books are also being sent home. Please return these as soon as they have been read (alongside a comment on their home reading record) so that a new book can be given out. 

Other information:

Please ensure that children do not bring unnecessary items to school. Ideally, children should only bring the following items to school: 


Lunch box 

Water bottle

Home reading book
