Spring Term



Weather Around the World


This term we are learning about weather around the world. In English we have lots of exciting stories to read, including some traditional tales. We will be finding out about different kinds of animals and whether they are herbivores, omnivores or carnivores, as well as looking at the places they live and the kind of weather they experience. In maths we are moving on to numbers to 50 and using what we already know about numbers to 20 to work with bigger numbers. We will also begin to complete activities involving measuring in Maths.


World Book Day 2019


We celebrated World Book Day by coming to school dressed as our favourite story book characters. Throughout the day we completed many reading activities.

Here are our fantastic costumes. 


We also welcomed Luke Temple, a local author, to tell us about the children's books he has written.

The children worked for a long time on their windows and showed great perseverance. 

Here are some of our fabulous creations:
