Spring 1 Term


Hi everyone! We hope you have had a lovely break. This half term we will be focusing on space! The children will be looking at the different planets and learning about their unique features. We will be looking at division in maths and focusing on our story The Man on the Moon in English. We will also look at plants in science and trying to grow our own indoor plants and test for the best conditions! 


Thank you to all those parents who completed their space helmets! We know this would have taken a great deal of time and effort, but the children really were excited in class and it was lovely to see them share their experiences and ideas. Thank you. Please look at our Class Dojo stories to see some of these helmets in action!

Autumn 2 Term 


Our topic for this half term will be World War 2. Here we will look to explore British Values and share historical experiences with the children. 


We will look at: 

  • How children lived in the 1940s
  • What sorts of games they may have played
  • Life as an evacuee
  • Some of the vehicles used in WW2
  • The importance of Remembrance and the symbolism of poppies 
  • Rationing
  • Different types of shelters used for safety


Rest assured, we will teach and conduct activities with the children that are age appropriate. 


Our children looked wonderful today in our themed evacuee day! Thank you to all parents who sorted these costumes! 


(The miserable faces are intentional! To show how sad we'd be at having to be evacuated! They aren't genuine miserable faces! Honest)

Here are our children with their poppies that they have made!

Autumn 1 Term

As we're sure you've realised, our first topic is PIRATES! We wanted a topic that would be exciting and fun for the children to help get them back into the swing of school after having a lovely summer break. 


We have lots of exciting activities planned, including a Pirate themed day! 




Homework will be sent home on a Friday. Below you will find homework activities for the children. Children will also bring home a paper copy to complete. The digital copies below are in case your child loses or forgets their homework. The homework we send will always be based on the learning during that week - this means that the children will be familiar with the concepts/strategies they need to use in order to consolidate their learning. Homework is not intended to worry children or overload parents; it is simply a valuable way of helping children further their learning at home whilst giving parents insight into the skills we are teaching in school. The children will bring home a homework book with their homework in, please look after this as will will be unable to replace them.


If you have any questions regarding homework please either come as Mrs Adams or myself, or send your child in with a note or email the office and they will forward it on. 


Children who complete their homework and return it on or by the following Friday will receive a Monster Point!
