Your child has come home today with a spelling test on the 200 high frequency words. The words highlighted in yellow were incorrect and will be tested again in the weeks to come. If you could please tackle a few a week to learn at home then that would be really helpful to their everyday spelling.

Thank you

What an amazing performance today in our class led worship on hope.

Autumn Term Curriculum Overview

FOREST SCHOOL CLOTHING - here is a suggestion of what to wear for forest school sessions for the next 3 weeks as we have hit a cold spot.


AUTUMN/WINTER TERMS                   

During this time of year, your child needs to be prepared for a chilly and often wet session.

On forest school mornings each child should ideally be wearing ;


Vest or thermal top

Tights or thermal leggings


Long sleeved T-shirt top

Fleece top/jumper

Leggings/trousers (preferably a thicker type material for really cold weeks)

TOP LAYER – for really cold weeks

Thicker fleece /jacket


waterproof jacket

Waterproof trousers or dungaree trousers



Tights or socks – would advise two pairs of socks in the colder weeks, feet get cold in wellies, also ensure you have a suitable size that will fit two pairs of socks – if the boot is too tight it will also make the feet colder.


Wool hat and scarf/snood


Forest School week 2 - wehad fun using palm drills, making bird feeders, climbing trees and making different things in the mud kitchen.

Our first forest school session this year. We had lots of fun digging for worms, making mud pie and building dens.
