Dates for your Diary





Please pay your £10 Trips and Treats money for this term at the School Office if you have not already done so.



Our current topic is ‘Festivals and Celebrations’

We are learning about Bonfire Night, Diwali, Remembrance Day, Hanukkah and Christmas as part of this topic, considering their similarities and differences as well as how they are celebrated by different people. 


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 day is every Thursday so please ensure your child's PE kit is in school every Thursday.


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 in case they get extra opportunities to read. 

We are trying to visit the library regularly too, so please send your library book to school so that these can be changed. 


Home Learning – Home-learning is always a new Word of the Week. It is up to you how you represent this word - you could draw, create a collage, take a photograph, do some baking or whatever else the word might make you think of! It is given out every Wednesday in Purple home-learning 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.
