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 'Extreme Survival'. We will learn how to use maps, atlases, globes and digital/computer mapping to locate areas of extreme heat and cold. We will develop an understanding of why some areas are very cold and some very hot. We will also learn how to describe and begin to understand what life is like in those places for people, animals and vegetation. For this topic, we will visit ‘Twycross Zoo’.


Class information

PE - Our PE day is every other Tuesday, but please have your PE kit in school every day in case we have an extra chance to do PE. We also have swimming every Wednesday. Please ensure your child brings their swimming kit on this day.


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


Home Reading Children need to bring their reading books and diaries every Monday to be checked and to ensure that they can be entered into the reading raffle. Please support your child by listening to them read and making a short comment in their diary. In Key Stage 2, children are responsible for changing their own book once they have finished it.


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