ALL 'Love for Learning' books due back Friday 16th May 2019


Welcome back after a well needed Easter break!  We are being transported back in time 

to the prehistoric era!  Delve with us to walk with dinosaurs and learn how we can be real life archeologists excavating for fossils and bones!  We will be learning about the life and times of Dinosaurs, exploring how they lived and what they would eat...plants? meat? or both?

Come and join us for lots of Dinosaurama this term and bring your wild side.....

If you have any questions, please speak to your child's teacher for more information.


Spring 2 - Over the Moat

We are now halfway through our school academic year and we start off this term with a super and fabulous trip to Windsor Castle!  We know that as teachers we are excited to be going, so we know that the children can not wait to experience being in a real life working castle.

We are going to have such fun this term with our Castle themes, looking at features of a castle and learning to be knights of the Garter, knowing what our shield crest looks like and being ready for battle....

'Fall in....Eyes front....Attention....and off we go...'

See all the topic themes below and if you have any questions, please come and see your class teachers.

Speaking Competition 2019.  We have chosen 3 that are easy, medium and a little more tricky!

Spring 1 - Spectacular Space

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

We are back with a new topic for this term....Space!  

We are really excited to be helping Buzz Lightyear by sending him back to the moon using all the knowledge we gain in the term to fly him back in a new rocket and letting him know what mission he needs to undertake when he gets there.  

Fly with us to the moon and journey to the outer reaches of the Solar System!!

Autumn 2 - The Real Fairy Tales

It is going to be a busy term with Christmas around the corner. We will be travelling to the land of fairy tales in this half of Autumn and discovering what makes a good fairy tale and which familiar characters we will meet along the way!

We will be reaching up to the skies to visit the Giant in Jack and the Beanstalk and visiting Granny in Little Red Riding Hood with a basket of healthy food!  Who will we meet along the way...we wonder?

Year 1 are also looking forward to visiting the theatre to watch Dick Whittington and preparing for an end of term Nativity play for our parents to come and support!  

Please find the topic web below for the half term below.
