Curriculum

During the next term our topic is, Pirates of the Caribbean.

Over the holidays a band of Pirates tried to destroy our classrooms, but thankfully our return to school interrupted them. During the term we will read Pirate stories and write about them, we will research famous pirates, we will make maps and we will set sail for the Caribbean, where we will compare the UK to a different country. We will sing pirate songs, make pirate music, draw and paint pirates and Caribbean landscapes and even create our own money!

We are going to be very busy!’

Key Information for Key Stage One ...

PE Days

We have PE on Thursday. Your child will need navy shorts and white t-shirt or leotard. For outdoor PE your child should have some suitable footwear such as trainers on this day. No jewellery, including earrings, is permitted for PE. Children need to remove these or cover them with tape. We also require that long hair is tied up for these lessons.

Home Reading and Homework

It is vitally important that your child reads at home regularly and learns to love reading. We believe that this is essential for your child to understand and access all other subjects.  Please return book bags and home reading books daily for changing. Children will change these books by themselves to encourage independence however they will be monitored to ensure their reading books are pitched at the correct level. We would like you to hear your child read at least 3 times a week. Your child will receive homework on Fridays and we would like it to be returned on Wednesdays.

Water Bottles

We would encourage your child to bring a labelled water bottle to school, so that they can keep hydrated throughout the day. We ask that pencil cases and toys not be brought into school. Finally, please ensure that all jumpers and cardigans have names in.

Pencil cases and toys are not permitted in Years 1 and 2 and should not be brought into school. Neither should any other personal belongings unless when agreed beforehand.

Outdoor learning

We are very excited to now have our Years 1 and 2 classes located at the bottom end of school. This means that we will have easy access to outdoor learning opportunities. We will be looking to take advantage of this as much as possible. Therefore, please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately for outdoor activities such as coats and hats when cold and sun cream in the summer months.
