Our Topics

Every half term we will have a broad topic title.  Throughout the year, adults and children plan what we will learn.  As inspiration, most of our learning will be based around a story. Working together to shape our learning and experiences means everyone is motivated and engaged in what we do.  Our ideas can take our learning in many exciting directions.

This year we will be studying the following five topics:

Autumn 1: I Spy

Autumn 2: Be Our Guest - Beauty and the Beast

Spring 1: Through the Woods

Spring 2: 



Reading Books / Library Books

Each child will be given a reading diary and some school books to bring home to read. Please leave a comment in your child’s reading diary so that school staff know how much of the book has been read. We will also check each the children's reading diaries frequently to see if they require new books to take home.

General Reminders

The children will be doing PE twice a week.  Please ensure that your child has their PE kit (white t-shirt, shorts, plain tracksuit bottoms, pumps and trainers) in school at all times (and all clearly labelled).

The children may also bring in their own water bottles from in from home, but please make sure that they are labelled also.

In Key Stage 1 the children receive free fruit as an afternoon snack and will be encouraged to try everything.

If your child wishes to have milk please visit the website and register. Cool Milk will then add your child to the list, ready for the following week.

Dojo is a lovely way to share experiences from school and home. We would like to hear what you have been dong at home. Have you been to grandma’s house, a party, played a game or have been to the park?  You can share photos and experiences on pupil story



I would again like to thank you in advance for all your support this year and if you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact me on ClassDojo or come in and see me.

Kindest regards,

Mr M. Harding
