What We Are Learning


Picture 1

Have you ever wondered what insects would say if they talked?

Belle lives in the middle of the city of Paris but she also loves the countryside. Every summer she goes to visit her grandparents in the country. This year they give her a bike and she decides to go exploring, carrying a rucksack with all the things she needs, including a pen knife, a journal, sharp pencils, a camera and a croissant! Unfortunately, she has an accident and falls off her bike. She thinks that she is lost, but then she meets a bee who talks!!

Reading Morning: Every Tuesday 8:40-8:55 

It is of the utmost importance that you read with your child every day.  The children change their books 3 times a week; Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.




Spellings are given out every week on Wednesday. There is a spelling test every Monday. Spelling books should be returned on Monday so that new spellings can go home and our spelling test is on Tuesday. Please help your children practice their spellings daily.


Learning Logs

Learning logs are issued every other Friday. Please feel free to help your child make, models, encourage them to draw pictures and write sentence about the given topic for that week. We look forward to seeing them in class. 

Help your child at home


  • count in multiples of 2, 3, 5 and 10
  • learn the times tables up to 12
  • talk about shapes and their properties
  • measure things using a ruler
  • add and subtract 2 digit amounts
  • Tell the time using analogue and digital clocks.   Extend this by looking at roman numerals. 


PE takes place on  Wednesday morning forPluto Class and on Friday Mornings for Orion and Comet Class.  Please make sure your children have a full P.E kit on these days.
