Special Breakfast is a fantastic celebration for the week where we have a great range of healthy and tasty food which occurs each Friday morning. We also celebrate our pupil’s achievements throughout the week and our certificates to our Rights Respecting Superstars and prizes can be won from a raffle. We further have nurture time on a Friday afternoon, where the pupils have the independence to select an activity of their choice from a variety of options such as football, arts & crafts, dodgeball, sensory activities and cricket etc. As the school year progresses and we reach the final term of the school year, we are looking forward to…





This term Fir class will be delving into the book The BFG. The big friendly giant is full of outrageous humour and plenty of jokes about bodily functions that children will love, this warm-hearted story is one of Roald Dahl’s many much loved tales.




Fir Class for Maths will be discovering time, fractions, numbers, weight. By discovering how to count up in 5s which indicates the minutes and learning the difference on a 24hr clock. While also introducing roman numerals. Fractions will consist of what makes up a fraction and how this can be used in everyday situations such as measurements like money, weight and length.






The topic for science this term is sound! The children will learn the components of the ear and how humans hear sound through vibrations, with fun experiments for the children to engage with!






The big question for geography this term is… Where does food come from? This topic for geography, helps introduce the children to scientific processes of making and creating food but also raises environmental food awareness. This will help the children understand the food they eat and how it gets to them.
