Our Reading, Spelling and Grammar assessments will begin this week.

Games/PE – Outdoor games will be on Thursday afternoon. Over the next few weeks, we will be playing cricket. Can children please have warm and suitable outdoor kit with them for this lesson. Indoor P.E will be on Friday afternoon where the children will be doing gymnastics. Swimming will be every Thursday for Mrs Clerc’s class until further notice.

Topic – We will be looking at WWI and remembrance Day. In Science we will be looking at properties of materials and considering which materials are reversible or irreversible when heated.

In French we will be learning how to write sentences to introduce ourselves.

Our Art work will be linked to WWI. We will be making poppies. Each child needs to bring a plastic bottle to school.

Every Tuesday, children will  be given a new set of spellings to learn at home and will be tested on the previous week’s spelling list. Please can you practise as often as possible.


We are always happy to answer any questions or queries that you may have, so don’t hesitate to contact us.
