Hand in hand we learn, we grow, we soar


‘I don’t give up and I bounce back from my mistakes.’


‘I treat others how I would like to be treated.’


‘I am friendly and caring in my words and actions.’


‘I am honest and helpful and make the right choices.’


‘I rise to a challenge and I am brave.’


‘I have love for myself, for others and for God.’


On this page you will find links and photos of things we have done recently and what we will be looking forward to in the future.


We will be regularly updating the photos of the learning activities we have got up to, so please come back again soon.


If you would like any further information about the learning we have covered, or the forth-coming learning topics, please don’t hesitate to come and see us. We will also post topic overviews for the term and homework tasks on the classroom noticeboards.


Term 1- Marvellous Me!

This term we shall be following the theme of:  “Marvellous Me”. We will be focusing on various aspects including:


  • My family
  • My body
  • My senses
  • Healthy Living
  • Growth, exercise and rest
  • Feelings
  • What makes me special!

If your child would like to bring in items related to the study they would be very welcome, please make sure that they are named and not too valuable.


We do not encourage toys or games to be brought into school in case they get lost.


Term 2-

This term our theme is “Fantastic Festivals”. We have been celebrating festivals such as Bonfire Night and Diwali and we are now learning about Thanksgiving and Christmas. If you have any items which you feel would support our studies, please send them in with your child. Please ensure that any item has your child’s name on it.


We have introduced Read Write Inc to the children and they are already learning lots of the sounds. Thank you for the support you give your child in reading at home. Please ensure your child’s reading book and record book are in school every day to enable adults in school to read with your child.


The children are looking really smart in their new school uniform! Please make sure every item is clearly named!


We are beginning to learn our songs for our Nativity play in December. Details of this will be on forthcoming newsletters.


Term 3

Owls have enjoyed learning stories about colours in our topic “Over the Rainbow”.  We investigated materials to keep Elmer dry and we had lots of fun testing our ideas!


We understand that it is good to share like The Rainbow Fish and had fun making our own little fish.  “Cats Colours” helped us to explore colours in our natural world and we enjoyed crunching in the frost covered grass on our frosty walk.


We have learned about animal camouflage through the story of “The Mixed Up Chameleon” and investigated good places for our colourful chameleons to hide around the school.  We look forward to more stories.
