Our topic this half-term is ‘Flying High’. We will be looking at the history of flight and as always will be aiming high with our standards across the curriculum.

PE will be on Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Please ensure that your child has a full PE kit, including trainers, in school at all times.  Also, please label all uniform and PE kit, as you can imagine, there can be quite a lot of confusion when everyone has the same clothes!

Each week, the children will have 10-15 spellings to practice at home, ready for a test on Friday.  I will also set homework each week – this will go home on Friday, to be returned by the following Thursday (at the latest).  Homework should take about 20 minutes and will usually be able to be done independently.

I will send a newsletter home each Friday, in the meantime, if you have any questions, please come and see me or email me on
