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 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 Airport to look at the planes and how the airport works day to day!


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 word of the 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. Additionally you can complete the power projects! 


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