 In class we are learning...



 WK1: A focus on Growth Mindset

Throughout the week the children will be focusing on these objectives: 

-Draw a mindmap of positive learning 

-Understanding growth mindset

-Starting to use cursive handwriting 

-Recapping spelling expectations 

-Apply growth mindset to our artwork 






 Wk1: Place Value 

read, write, order and compare numbers to at least 1 000 000 and determine the value of each digit

round any number up to 1 000 000 to the nearest 10, 100, 1000,




If your child would like to do some extra activities at home, in their own time, they need to let Mrs Ridd/Mrs Oakley know and they can provide a Home/School book.

PE days - Monday and Wednesday  (Term 1)

Please can children have correct PE kit in school for these days. White t-shirt, blue or black shorts and appropriate footwear for both indoor and outdoor PE.  I am more than happy for children to wear jogging bottoms for outdoor PE when it is cold, but please can these be dark and plain.

Children will need to tie their hair back and ALL jewellery must be removed (earrings may be covered with tape)

Cycle training - Mr. Moon is organising cycle training this year. Children will know who is doing it this term.
