The Summer Term!


We had a great time in our Yoga session as part of our Better Living Day!

Our Theme for this half term will continue to be Road Trip America!

We will be finding out about America and how it is different to England. 

 We will be focusing on Geography this half term.


As part of our theme we had an American Lunch!  All the children enjoyed the food especially the big cookies!

Our RE theme is

Mission of the Church

We will learn that Peter was chosen by Jesus to play a special role in the Church and that Jesus gave his followers a mission – to spread the Good News to others. We will learn that Jesus promised the Holy Spirit to help his followers and that Pentecost was the beginning of the Church. We will learn about the missions of Peter and Paul and about Stephen the first martyr of the Christian

At Home:
You could help your children by:
• discussing with them the life of St Peter and that he was the first Pope
• reading the missionary journeys of St Paul in Acts of the Apostles (Ch 16 ff)
• visiting

Our Spring Term!

 We had great fun finding out about different sea creatures at Blue Planet!

 We became song writers!  We listened to a song about bullying and then wrote our own version. We then performed our songs to each other!

We learnt lots of facts in our road safety training.

We had a brilliant day at Ogden Water.  We did a mini beast hunt, pond dipping and then became Native Americans in the afternoon!
