PE reminders 

PE days

Please can you ensure that your child brings the appropriate outdoor P.E kit. With temperatures decreasing, a fleece or a hoody, a polo shirt and jogging bottoms will help to keep your child warm whilst engaging in physical activities outdoors. A suitable coat, gloves and a hat will also be required as winter approaches.

It will also be greatly appreciated if all clothing/belongings that are brought into school are labelled clearly with your child’s name.

Thank you,

Autumn 2017

Languages day - September 2017


On Tuesday 26th September, Year 1 came into school in the colours of the French flag and learnt lots of different things about France and the French language.

The children learnt how to say animals and numbers in French. They also had opportunity to taste some French food including croissants and pain au chocolat. 

Here are some pictures of Year 1 in action throughout the day.

Poetry day- 05.10.17

On Thursday 5th October, Year 1 children celebrated 'Poetry day' by creating poem about Autumn leaves.

Year 1 have been learning about weather and season change so we decided to focus our poem around the season of Autumn.


Here is the children in action performing the poem


The children also investigated the different colours in Autumn leaves and then painted their own leaf by colouring mixing the primary colours.
