Our current topic is ‘Past and Present’

So far we have talked about what 'Past and Present' means - using the language of time, talking about yesterday, last year, today and tomorrow. The children have also loved talking about when their next birthday will be. We have also delved deep into the past learning all about Dinosaurs - we even found some very suspicious footprints in the woods!

Throughout this term we are also going to be thinking about what Britain used to be like which will be enhanced by our trip to the Think Tank Museum where we will be able to see lots of different types of transportation that used to used.


We will continue to access the outdoor area as a part of our free flow learning – please ensure your child has a warm coat and wellies, so they are prepared for going out in any weather.


Class information

PE - Our PE days alternate between Mondays and Thursdays, but please ensure your child's PE kit is in school every day in case we have an extra chance to do PE.


Home Reading – Our fantastic volunteer Mrs Scrivens will change your child’s home reading book on a TUESDAY. Please read at home with your child as often as possible and make a note in their reading record. Please send your book bag to school every day.


Home Learning – Home-learning is always linked to the learning we have done that week. It is given out every Wednesday in homework books. It must be returned by the following Monday so that it can be marked and sent back to you.


Uniform Please make sure your child’s uniform, PE kit and coat is clearly labelled. Jewellery is not allowed in school except for simple stud earrings
