Welcome Back (What's the Big Idea?)

We hope you all had a good holiday and are now all refreshed and ready for the start of this year.

During this year we will be looking at 'Big Ideas' which starts off during Autumn term with Superheroes and Celebrations. During Spring we will be looking at Turrets & Tiara's, as Plants & seasons. We finish the year by looking at Being an Inventor and Africa.

Educational Trips and Visits

During the year, we have several visits and trips planned, which include a Rabbi visit, St Mary's Church, Wollaton Hall, Farm Visit and a trip to Twycross Zoo.
More details, regarding each of these, will be provided via Marvellous Me nearer the time.

Maths! No Problem

In Maths, we will be following the Maths! No problem program.


Each week your child will have a set of words to learn and remember. Please do spend just 5 minutes a day going over their spellings with them.


The spring term starts with our Walking with Dinosaurs lessons and then moves onto Crazy Creatures.


In Spanish we will be finding out our Body and Face parts

Books this Autumn Term

Our focus books this term are The Egg by M.P. Robertson. George knows something isn't right when he finds more than he bargained for under his mother's favourite chicken....but when the egg hatches he finds himself looking after a baby dragon! George takes his job as a parent seriously, teaching the hatchling all sorts of 'dragony' ways, but the dragon begins to pine for his own kind, and one day he disappears...

Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.One night Max puts on his wolf suit and makes mischief of one kind and another, so his mother calls him 'Wild Thing' and sends him to bed without his supper. That night a forest begins to grow in Max's room and an ocean rushes by with a boat to take Max to the place where the wild things are. Max tames the wild things and crowns himself as their king, and then the wild rumpus begins. But when Max has sent the monsters to bed, and everything is quiet, he starts to feel lonely and realises it is time to sail home to the place where someone loves him best of all.


In Science, we will be learning about plants and plant structures and will follow this up with a Spring Walk.


P.E. takes place every week on Monday afternoons. Please ensure that your child has their bag with them.
