Mr Allen is our teacher and our class is supported by Miss Blower.

This term our topic is famous people in history and we are looking at the lives of Florence Nightingale and Edith Cavell.

PE is on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please make sure that the children have the appropriate kits (for indoor and outdoor use), long hair tied back and earrings either removed or taped over.

We encourage the children to read every day. Please regularly sign your child’s reading record and make comments about their reading and comprehension.

We encourage the children to drink water. Please send a named water bottle every day.

Spellings will be tested throughout the week first thing in the morning, as an early morning activity, dependant on the group your child is in.

Homework is sent home termly and children can choose one of the 5 pieces to do weekly. It needs to be returned every Wednesday. The children can talk to their teacher if there is anything they have not understood.
