We are learning

This term we are learning about Emergency Services, including visitors to talk to the children about how they help us and our community.

We will also be looking at the stories ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ and ‘The Enormous Turnip, which we will learn how to retell.

In the lead up to Christmas, we will be practising our production of A Wriggly Nativity. The performances will take place on Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th of December at 1:50pm.


This term the children have been given a banded reading book, a reading record book and key words to help support their phonics learning. Please ensure they stay in their book bags and are brought into school every day.

Your child will be heard reading throughout the day in various activities, including a banded reading book. Their books will be changed weekly on a Monday, please indicate that you have read with your child and you are ready for the book to be changed.


All children are required to bring in clothing for Forest School and PE, which stays in school throughout the term. Please ensure all items of clothing are named, we cannot guarantee safe return otherwise.
