Spring News


May we start, albeit a little late, by wishing you all a very happy and healthy new year! The teaching and support staff would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the children on their excellent attitude to school after returning from the Christmas break.


In English we are focussing upon persuasive wring, choosing appropriate language, after half term we will be looking at the works of Michael Morpurgo in further detail. Through our Blocked Curriculum children will be learning about Space in Science. After half term our focus will be upon History and the Vikings, with our learning culminating on our Viking Day on Monday 12th March. Maths continues to follow national guidelines.


Please note the following dates for your diary:


Friday 19th January – Art Gallery Viewing

Tuesday 20th February – Astronomy Roadshow Visit

Tuesday 6th March/Thursday 8th March – Spring Parents’ Evening

Friday 23rd March – Sports Relief

Monday 26th March – Talent Show


A quick reminder, can you please ensure that homework diaries are signed every week, as although this process started well at the beginning of the school year we have noticed that more and more children are coming in on a Monday without signatures.
