Welcome Back

We hope you all had a lovely summer holiday and are well rested, ready for the new academic year.


Start of Year Information

Please find below useful information about class routines that should help your child stay organised.


  • School diaries - We will endeavour to write in these each day, but there will sometime be occasions when we are unable to. Children should bring their diary home each evening and return it to school each day.
  • Book bag - This should contain the diary, a homework book, reading books and any letters we send home. Please ensure this is checked for letters regularly and is brought into school every day.
  • Homework - The children will have a spelling, reading and maths activity to complete each week. Homework will be sent home on a Monday and should be returned to school on a Wednesday. If your child is unable to complete their homework for any reason, please make a note in the diary.
  • PE Kit - Our class will do PE on a Wednesday. This term the children will be doing indoor PE and will need: a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and plimsoles (trainers are not permitted in the Sports Barn).

Rainforest Topic

This term the children will be finding out about tropical rainforest and answering the essential question, "Can I be an eco-warrior?"


The children will find out about the biology of plants and how they grow, investigate the ways seeds are dispersed, study the impacts of deforestation and try to raise funds to buy an acre of rainforest.

Times Tables Videos

Here are some musical videos by the talented Mr Demaio to help the children practise their times tables.
