We will also share with you activities and useful ways that the children can be supported at home.

If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to one of the team and we will do all that we can to help. It is best to contact us via Class Dojo.



Thank you for your continued support.

Summer Topic




Our topic for the summer term is "One World', inspired by the story by Michael Foreman. This tells the story of a boy and girl who realise that the more they take from the world, the more harm is done. In this topic we will be learning about sustainability and the environment. We will look at the history of plastic usage and how it has affected the world's oceans and the inhabitants that live there. We will also be looking at artwork by Antony Goldsworthy and how he uses natural resources to inspire his creations. Our science also links in to this and we will be looking at the life cycles of plants.



Physical Education

Though this will be an unusual year for everyone, we have lots going on in school and this page aims to give you a taste of what we will be getting up to.


Our P.E days this term are on Wednesdays. Please send your children to school already dressed in their kits with jewellery removed. As the days get colder, please make sure they are dressed suitably. Grey or black joggers can be worn as can jumpers.



Following Government guidelines, we will be keeping windows open at all times in classrooms in order to increase ventilation. Please make sure children have jumpers and coats in school to keep them as comfortable as possible when it gets chilly.




Our topic this term will explore the Ancient Greeks and our Local Area. The children will be learning how the past has influenced the modern era as well as getting to grips with map reading and finding out more about the town they live in.
