‘Where everyone is able to achieve their best’

Spring Term

Ash Class Canopic Jars

Maple class used a variety of techniques to shape their clay into 3D sculptures. We have created our own canopic jars!

Ancient Egypt!

This term, the children will be investigating Ancient Egypt. They will begin by developing a geographical and historical understanding about where Egypt is and when the ancient period was (in relation to other historic periods they have already or will be studying). During lessons, the children will explore how the Ancient Egyptians lives and why key parts of their history were so important.

We will also have a special visit from Cleopatra herself! 


Swimming and P.E

All children will be going swimming every Friday morning. To make sure that we have as much time in the pool as possible, children should come to school in their P.E. kit and are encouraged to wear their swimming clothes underneath. Please remember to bring a towel, goggles if needed and underwear for after the swimming session. 

Each class will have their P.E. sessions on a different day and children should come to school in their P.E. kit on their allocated day.

Ash - Monday 

Maple - Tuesday

Sycamore - Thursday


Times tables

In the summer term, the children will complete the national multiplication check. Please continue to support your child at home to develop their times table recall (up to 12 x 12). We will complete many practises and similar activities in school.  

Timestable Rockstars is a brilliant website to encourage for 10 minutes each day. If you would like additional worksheets or activity ideas, please speak to your class teacher.
