Useful information

PE - Our PE lessons will take place on a Thursday and Friday. Please ensure that your child comes to school in appropriate PE kits on those days. Our school PE kit is black shorts or joggers/leggings, a plain white t- shirt and trainers for this autumn term. We ask that other gym wear and football shirts are not worn. 

Drinks and snacks - Please can all children bring a labelled, filled water bottle into school daily. Snack is now being provided by the Government so children do not need to bring a snack into school with them each day. 

Seesaw - Seesaw is great resource that we use to communicate with each other and share lots of useful information. Photos of your child's brilliant learning will be shared with you on a regular basis through Seesaw. You are also welcome to message me through the app and I will get back to you ASAP. 


Reading - To encourage independence, children will be responsible for changing their own reading books. We encourage all children to share a wide range of books with their families and not just their reading books from school. We would love it if you read with your child as often as possible - it really does make a huge difference to their progress. It is a known fact that children's vocabulary and understanding is improved by reading everyday. It would be great it you could take the time to discuss what they have read and ask questions using VIPERS. We are really grateful for your support in this area. 

Spellings - Spelling lists will be sent home via Seesaw. Children will be tested on their spellings every Friday. The spellings may practise a particular phonic pattern, or be taken from their year group "common exception words" list of high frequency words that are tricky to spell.

Our Curriculum

Throughout the Summer term we will be focusing on the following subjects: History, Geography, Music, PSHE, PE, RE, Art, DT, Computing as well weekly Science lessons and daily Maths, English, Phonics and Guided reading lessons.  Please see the Summer term Curriculum map below to find out about our learning across all the Curriculum subjects.

In Science and Geography we have been learning about seasonal changes. We explored our school grounds and observed the changes that were happening to the leaves and trees. Whilst outside we stopped and took time to appreciate and wonder about God's creation. We discussed the Creation story and the day God created the plants, trees and land and why they are important to our world.
