Key information


Our arrival time each morning is 8.45-9.00am and we leave at 3.10pm. 

What to bring to school

The children should bring in a water bottle which they will take home each day as well as their packed lunch (if they do not receive a school lunch).  They do not need any other equipment such as pencil cases, stationary etc as they will have everything they need at their own desk.

PE days

Our PE days are now Tuesday (Forest School). Please send your child in their PE kit with suitable footwear (boots, wellies, old trainers) and warm clothing (hat, gloves). We are also swimming on a Friday. Please send your child with their full swimming kit and towel (full costume and swimming trunks).



Our topics for this half term are ‘What shape is my world?’ and ‘Space - Out of this World’. Write, design or make something that represents your learning from the past half term.


Spellings will be posted on Class Dojo and children will have the same list for 1 week. It would be great if the children completed fun activities at home and we will be learning these spellings in class throughout the week.


The children will take their Accelerated Reader book home every day. These should then come back into school every day also.
