What’s that in the playground? Let’s go outside and look. Stand back everyone– it looks like a UFO has crash landed!

Find out who might have landed by exploring the craft and investigating scattered scientific specimens. We will be finding out the names of the planets and the solar system. Do you know any?

In English we will be looking aliens and writing reports about the crash landing.

We will be creating our own space craft. Are you ready to take off. Hold tight 5-4-3-2-1….

Keep your eyes open for information about our Alien Day.

Soft fur, sharp claws and twitching whiskers… What’s your favourite animal? One that  meows? One that barks? Or maybe one that scurries or slithers?
From pets at home to animals in the zoo, let’s find out what animals like to eat and where they like to sleep. Do you know how to look after a rabbit? A cat? Or even a snake?
Find out how the elephant got his trunk and how the rhinoceros got his leathery skin.. Perhaps you know how the dog got his waggy tail? Can you make a food chain to show who eats who? Who is the herbivore and who is the carnivore?
This term we will be learning about animals and what they eat, where they live and who to look after them.
Are animals similar to us? We will find this out.


Reading is really important and we hope that your children are reading up to 4 times a week at home. Please make sure you are recording this in their records and change their books when needed. Please ask if you are unsure of book colours.

Class Dojo


We are continuing to use the Class Dojo reward system, which the children are loving! It is a way for children parents and teachers to engage with their rewards. It is also a way of quick communication between parent and teacher. You can see updates on the class story and children can upload things onto their own stories. 
If you haven't yet got onto dojo or need help getting on please don't hesitate to ask your child's class teacher.
