Welcome to Autumn term 2.  I trust everyone had a lovely half term break and enjoyed the crisp, fresh and bright mornings we had.  Mrs Allen and I look forward to hearing about and sharing with the children all their half term adventures.  Now we are ready for a very busy term leading up to our Christmas celebrations.


This term we shall prepare our Remembrance Day service which we will hold on Monday 11 November at 10.30 in the upper school hall.  The children have written some very poignant poetry which I think will evoke a lot of emotion, so remember your tissues! We shall also be preparing for our Christmas church service and hope you can jon us on Frdiay 20th December at 2p.m. in church.


We continue our topic "What's in yer bag?" a quote from our class reader which is Goodnight Mr Tom by Michelle Magorian.  It is a history based topic and we shall now focus on a local history investigation;  how the evacuation of children and the war itself affected our local community.


In English and reading we shall continue to focus on Goodnight Mr Tom,  writing narrative in diary form.


In R.E. we will be digging deeper into the incarnation and looking at Jesus as the peacemaker.


Homework will be given on a Friday and should be completed and returned by the following Wednesday.  Please don't struggle, or let the children struggle, with homework.  Mrs Allen and I are here to help.  Homework is a way of us checking that knowledge is embedded, so if it's not quite there we need to know so we can help further.


P.E. will be on Tuesday and Thursday.  However, please ensure P.E. kit is always in school as we never know when another opportunity will arise or a date will change.


I'm looking forward to our new half term, should you have any questions or queries please do contact me.  Feel free to look around our classroom and enjoy the celebratory displays of all our hard work.

W/C 7th October we hope to go on a wellie walk to inspire us as we create poetry for Remembrance day.  We will walk around the duck pond and to the church yard war memorial, we will focus on the wonder of life around us in nature and the contrast of war.  Wellies would be great, but any change of footwear (trainers or walking boots) would be just as great, it's only to avoid  treading mud all over school when we get back!

Evacuation to Perlethorpe

On our transition days we had lots of fun - we buried a time capsule, began to look at our topic of the Battle of Britain, did some art and played some silly games with water.
