It is important to us that all the children are happy at school therefore if you have any questions or concerns then please come and talk to us.


Autumn Learning Quest is ‘Traditional Tales’

The children started this topic with a Red Riding Hood court room scenario.  We looked at evidence from a crime scene to decide whether Mr Wolf was ‘guilty’ or ‘not guilty’. During the term we will be having our St John’s Bake Off for Grandma! We have also created art work based on ‘The Dot’ by Peter H. Reynolds and developed this artwork to combine art and history when learning about Remembrance Day.

Children in Otter class have been asking and answering questions about Remembrance Day. We combined our Art and History lessons to create a field of one million poppies in remembrance. We then completed comprehension questions relating to Remembrance Day to show that we know and understand key features of the event.
