The timetable for this half term:


Please note that our PE days for this half term are Wednesday and Thursday.  Remember to come to school already changed into your PE kit on your PE days.  Swimming will begin on Thursday 22nd September Thursdays: don't forget to bring your swimming kit with you to school on that day!

Our Topic this Half Term is Amazon Adventures. We will be learning all about the Amazon Rainforest! later in the term we will have a visit from the Animal Man!

Homework for this Half Term is based around the Rainforest Topic. Try do complete one piece of homework per week and bring this on a Thursday.


In Literacy, the children will read a range of texts based around the Rainforest such as: Journey to the River Sea, The Kapok Tree, Vanishing Forest and Over and Under. We will use the texts to develop our reading and writing skills.

In Maths the children will reinforce their knowledge of place value, the four rules of number and fractions.



Ambassador Awards 2022-2023
This year we will continue with the Ambassador Awards that recognise children’s achievements in school and the wider community. What is expected in order for children to achieve their ’Ambassador Award’ comes under 4 headings:
Behaviour and conduct

Each section has elements that underpin the values that as a school we hold dear. We believe that learning is something that continues every minute of the waking day and it is important to recognise children’s achievements not only in lessons but beyond. Adults in school will discuss each section with the children and how they can meet the criteria identified; we are hoping that the children will be able to take some ownership of the passport themselves!



Reading as much as possible will really help your child’s progress at school. For their learning passport they must have read three times a week all term.   It is very important that they understand what they are reading a few minutes spent asking questions about what has been read helps children to develop comprehension skills which are vital to their education.  We also have a competition running in school each week. The number of times each child in the class each week is added up and the class that has read the most receives a prize in our Star Assembly on a Friday afternoon. 

Remember also to use Times Tables Rockstars regularly each week in order to consolidate times tables knowledge.
