We love being outdoors and exploring, so far this term as well as settling back into routines we have been exploring our school environment.

This half term our class topic is


As the term progresses we will post pictures so that you can see what we have been doing.



An email with our Autumn Term letter was sent to all parents at the start of term but key information is below.


    Reading books are changed Monday and Thursday to allow for 'Book Quarantine'

Please hear your children read daily if possible, it really is key to their progress.


PE is on Wednesday and the children may come to school in PE kit all day. 


Spellings will be given out on a Friday to be tested the following Friday. They will also be uploaded to this page weekly.



'Mucky Mondays' started on 21st September!

Below are some pictures!

We will be doing outside learning all day on Mucky Mondays! So please send your children in school uniform but also additional appropriate clothing, sun hats, wellies, warm coats, extra layers, waterproofs etc



Look out for MyMaths homework, coming soon... please let us know if you do not have log in details.



Our first Mucky Monday was a great success, we all had a lot of fun and luckily the weather was beautiful!

Our suggested 'Blended Learning' weekly timetable will be posted on a Friday for the following week, in the unfortunate event of self isolating or being away from school ill you will be able to follow the timetable, use the links and access learning like the children in school.
