Our Routines

Our school day begins at 8.40pm and ends at 3.10pm.

Every Tuesday the children will come home with a new ‘Reading for Pleasure’ book which they will have chosen with the help of their Year 6 Reading Buddy. This is a book for YOU to read and enjoy with THEM at bedtime. These books will need returning to school on a Monday please. A record of your reading needs writing down please in their reading record book.

F2P has PE on Mondays and F2/Y1K has PE on Tuesdays and Fridays.  Please send your child into school WEARING their P.E kit (dark coloured tracksuit bottoms or leggings, a white t-shirt and a red hoodie/sweatshirt or their school jumper or cardigan and wearing trainers or plimsols).

F2P will be visiting Eco-Land on Thursday afternoon (Pentecost 1) and F2/Y1K will be visiting Eco-Land on Thursday afternoon (Pentecost 2). Please send your child into school with a suitable coat, sun hat/cap and wellies in a carrier bag.

Our Learning

This term we have a really exciting topic all about ourselves, ‘Down in the deep, dark woods…’. Beginning with dragons and then moving on to look at local woodlands around us and then comparing this with the Brazilian Rain Forest. Each week our ‘Everywhere Bear’ will bring us a new book and our week’s learning will be centred around this.

We have two ‘Come and See’ topics for the first term. The first one is GOOD NEWS – What is good news? For Christians, the Gospel is the Good News of God’s love for everyone. At Pentecost, in the gift of the Holy Spirit given for all, Christ’s mission of bringing the Good News was entrusted to the community of believers which is the Church. The children will be encouraged to talk about how they feel when they have good news to share and how they feel when they hear Good News. We will learn about Pentecost Day and the Holy Spirit.

Our second topic is FRIENDS – Is it good to have friends? Christians believe that, in Jesus Christ, the world has been reconciled to God.  Through Christ we are offered the power to forgive and make peace and to receive and offer reconciliation.  Relationships bring both joy and challenge. The children will be encouraged to talk about their experiences and feelings about what a friend is, how we make friends and what we can do when friendships go wrong.
