P.E days

We have P.E Tuesday 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.



Spring 2 - Science week!

The children have so far loved science week and have enjoyed exploring our five senses through making shakers, tasting different foods, exploring different textures and identifying smells.


More from science week...


The children collected their own materials and worms from our outdoor area to create wormeries.

Our topic this half term is London, as well as looking in to The Great Fire of London & Easter


The children done a fantastic job painting the Queens portrait.
