Happy New Year! 

Teresa, Picasso and Hockney classes are ready and raring to learn this Spring term! We are excited to get stuck into our new book in English “The way home for wolf” by Rachel Bright. All three classes have created an immersive corner relating to a particular part of the story. These help the children to engage further with the book and really become a part of the story through role play.

Take a look at our creations!

Immersive Corners

Our new topic is INTREPID EXPLORERS!

This half term we are going to be exploring with Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong! 

We will investigate why they are remembered today, what they achieved and how they are similar to or different from each other.

Gunpowder, Treason and Plot

Remember, remember the 5th of November. Gunpowder, Treason and Plot...

We are excited to be learning all about Guy Fawkes and his plot to kill King James! This gruesome History topic is full of interesting people from the past and helps us to understand why we celebrate Bonfire Night each year on November 5th.

Food for Life


The children in all three classes enjoyed learning about where their food comes from. We made herby bread rolls, using fresh herbs we had grown in our herb garden. The children explored the herbs and enjoyed adding them into their bread roll dough mix!

The best bit was the tasting!

Phonics Screening Check Information for Year 1 and 2.

Please find below a PowerPoint that we usually share with parents to explain what is involved in the Phonics Screening Check.  As the check was cancelled for Year 1 children in 2020-2021, this year's Year 2 children will be assessed by the end of the Autumn Term.  Year 1 children will take the Phonics Screening Check in June 2022.  They will soon be receiving a Phonics Pack to support them at home.

Information for years 1 and 2 parents regarding 2021 - 2022 academic year can be found on the Zoom recording below (along with the PowerPoint which was shared with parents during the Zoom meeting on Wednesday 8th July).
