What we're learning this term...

Treasure Island

Our main topic this term is Treasure Island.  We will teach Geography, Computing, Art and Design and Design Technology through this theme.  The children will be using and making maps with compass directions, looking at maps of the World and the UK and even making their own pirate coins! 


In the first couple of weeks we will be talking to children about how their brain works and strategies we can use to learn and remember things.  

RE: Domestic Church: The Family

The children will be talking about their family and learning that we all belong to the family of God and he loves us all, even though we are all different.

We wrote our own thank you prayer

Thank you for the stars, the sun, the moon, the clouds, water and butterflies.

Thank you for our family and friends who make us laugh.

Thank you for Jesus and for being kind to us.

We love the World and we love you.


Science: Everyday Materials

In this topic, children will be identifying and sorting materials such as plastic, wood, glass and fabric.  They will then carry out investigations to find their properties.

Please see our Autumn newsletter for more information on how you can support learning at home.

Weekly Homework

Spellings will be sent home each week and tested on a Friday. Please practise them with your child. 

Homework books will be sent out on a Thursday to be returned by the following Tuesday.

Please read with your child every night and sign their reading diary.

Fun in Forest School!

The children have been exploring forest school in the sun and rain!

What materials did you find?

Pirate Day!

Today we were pirates for the day! First Meg Mate came to visit and told us all about life as a pirate, including what was on their ships, what they ate and how to steer the boat.  We even looked at some pirate weapons!  We made pirate badges and learnt a song about pirates.  It was great fun and we're going to keep learning more over the next few weeks!

Today we had some special visitors who we really enjoyed reading to!

Games with Chris

We've had so much fun this half term practising our ball skills and joining in team games.
