P.E days

We have P.E Monday afternoon and Wednesday morning but it would be useful if your children could have their P.E kits in school all week in case any other sporting activities are planned.



Homework will consist of number work, letter formation and spellings and will be sent home each Friday to be returned the following Friday. Reading books will also be sent home daily.



Autumn 1

The children loved dressing up for Roald Dahl day and enjoyed making dream jars, searching for letters in Mr Twits wormy spaghetti and designing Mr Twit's beard. 

Our topic this half term is Castles and Knights.


The children done a brilliant job designing their own catapults and creating them using different materials. They even tested them to see who's would fire the marshmallows the furthest.

Forest School

The children love forest school each week and exploring the outdoor area. Last week they created homes for worms and explored how deep the puddles were. They also created their own bug masks.

EYFS & KS1 were sad to have to rearrange the trip to Muncaster Castle last week but enjoyed their morning in the play park.
