Our IPC topic is called 'Flight’

We will be learning all about different types of Flight. We will focus on hot air balloons and airplanes the most, looking at how they work, how we can make them, how they fly and the history of flight. As part of our trip we will be going to the Think Tank to look at the modes of flight displayed in the museum - and to have a bit of science input too!


Class information

PE - Our PE days are Tuesday and every other Wednesday, but please have your PE kit 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 THURSDAY. Please read at home with your child as often as possible and make a note in their planner. 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.


Spelling Tests - Spellings will be given out with homework on a Wednesday and the tests will be taken the following Tuesday.


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
