Our Curriculum
The downloadable pdf file Learning Intentions for the Summer 2019 term shows the Curriculum Overview for our class.

The Far Field

We go to the Far Field on Monday afternoons. Please could children bring in a change of clothes - trousers, a long sleeved top and wellies. We often get very muddy


Physical Development

Children will take part in activities that help their physical development every day. We would appreciate it if PE kits could be in all week.

Spots is excited about going home with the children for visits. He would love to be taken out and about to see the things that you enjoy looking at.

School Library

You are welcome to visit the school library with your child. The library is open from 8:40 each day. Please sign books out and in. We will be visiting the library as a class on Mondays.

Water Bottles

The PTFA kindly provide water bottles for the children in Recption class. These are filled and emptied at school.

Snack Time
Children in Reception and Key Stage One are provided with a snack each day. A selection of fresh fruits and vegetables will be available for them to choose from. A fruit stall is run at break times for the children in Key Stage Two.


Helping the Learning Journey

The Brilliant Board 
If your child has been involved in an activity out of school and has something to show us, we would love to display it in the classroom on our special board.

Sticky Notes 
If there has been one of those 'wow' moments out of school, if your child has been involved in a special activity or if there is something of interest your child or you would like to let us know about, you could write it on your Post-its. More Post-its are available in school.
