Our Projects

Autumn A - Big Question... What makes me fantastic?

This term we will be learning all about ourselves. We will be looking at our bodies in science and how they work. We will also look at our senses and which part of the body they belong to. In geography we will have a look at where we live and our local area. In art we will begin looking at our chosen artist Van Gough and creating self-portraits in his style.


Autumn B - Big Question... What toys did my grandparents play with when they were my age?

This term we will be looking at the history of toys and technology. We will look at old toys and current toys and compare them. In science we will be looking at materials and their properties. We will be continuing our work on Van Gough as well as designing and making our own Christmas cards with moving parts.




Important things to remember...

PE Kits

We will have PE twice a week. Please ensure your child brings their PE kit into school at the start of term. This should include black jogging bottoms or leggings, white polo top and a black jacket for outdoor PE sessions. Please also ensure your child has appropriate trainers in their PE kit to change into.

Forest School

All children will be taking part in weekly Forest School activities to promote team building, communication and language and independence skills. Please ensure your child has a waterproof coat in school everyday as the we will access our forest school even when it is raining! You may also wish to send in a pair or wellies to keep in school for your child to change into.


Your child will have weekly  Spellings set on the spelling shed app. Spelling tests will be every Friday so make sure you practice. Your log in details are stuck in the front of your reading record. You can also use this login to access maths shed. This has games linked to your learning in maths each week.

Reading Books

Your child's reading book will be changed once a week. Please can you read with your child at home for 10 minutes every night. Reading books must be in school every day in order to move up the troll tree. If you make it to the top of the troll tree by reading every day you will be entered into the prize draw to win a book in our celebration assembly.
