Class Information



P.E. Lessons

We have our P.E. lessons on Thursday. Please come to school in your PE kit on these days.




New spellings will be placed into homework books on the Look, Cover, Write, Check worksheet each Monday for children to practice at home for a spelling test the following Monday. These spellings incorporate 8 words from the previous week’s phonics lessons and 2 common exception words. Spellings will also be shared weekly via the class website page. Children then need to choose 3 of the new spellings and put these into sentences in their homework book. Children must write their own sentences and not copy from an adult. Please use a pencil and concentrate on neat handwriting, finger spaces, capital letters and full stops.



A weekly Classroom Secrets homework sheet linked to the maths focus for the week can also be found within homework books.



It is really important to read for pleasure regularly at home. Please read the book that you take home from school as well as the books you have at home too. Try to read for a few minutes every day. All children also have books uploaded on Bug Club (Active Learn).


Purple Mash

There are lots of activities and tasks on Purple Mash, which we use for our Computing Curriculum that children can enjoy at home. Your child's login can be found in their Homework book.

Our topic for Term 3 is Bright Lights, Big City!


To start our new topic we shall be having afternoon tea on Wednesday 4th January. Please can your child bring smart clothes to change into for this. We are also looking for donations of cakes and biscuits. This is a good way to donate any sweet treats you have left over after Christmas. 


Hop on board a big, red bus and head for England’s capital. Yes, that’s right, we’re on our way to London!

This half term, we’ll take tea with the King and visit Buckingham Palace online. Using maps and research, we’ll locate Buckingham Palace, understand compass directions, plan routes around London and learn about the countries of the United Kingdom. Our research will take us back in time to the Great Fire of London and to famous London landmarks, as well as giving us an understanding of what it’s like to live in a big city. We’ll explore a school in a city far away, write adventure stories, take a virtual trip to London Zoo and make souvenirs for tourists.

At the end of our project, we’ll share our skills and knowledge with you. 


Help your child prepare for their project
Cities are exciting places. Why not visit a local city to spot interesting vehicles, buildings and landmarks? Alternatively, you could search the web for images, information and film clips about London and keep a scrapbook of your findings. You could also visit the local library to see if you can find some colourful books of nursery rhymes and traditional songs to enjoy together.
