Dates for your Diary


18/11/19 - Class trip to Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery


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 'Meet the Flintstones'. In this topic we will learn more about the period of time called 'The Stone Age', and explore how Neanderthal men lived. We will also discover how things change through time, and the cause and consequence of some of the main events/inventions in the Stone Age.


Class information

PE - Our PE day is every other Friday, 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 out 'Word of the Week', which gives an opportunity to represent that word in whichever way you would like to! Home Learning is sent home on Wednesday, and collected back on Monday.


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.


Fact Fluency - In order to help fill in gaps in your child’s knowledge, your child will be learning some fundamental maths facts that underpin many areas of number – we call these the “Skeleton Keys”. The Skeleton Key your child is learning is Bonds to 20: knowing both the addition facts that make 20 (i.e. 12 + 8, 11 + 9 etc), and the subtraction facts (20 – 7 = 13; 20 – 2 = 18 etc). Your child will hopefully make the connection with their bonds to 10 and apply it to their bonds to 20 – i.e. 7 + 3 = 10 so 17 + 3 = 20.


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.
