We hope the children are ready for an action-packed term! We will be presenting the Easter service and learning all about the Mayans. See below for a guide to what we will be learning about this term. Miss Naylor will be teaching on some afternoons.

Viking Day


The children had a fantastic day! They learnt about Viking life, dressed up in Viking clothing, looked closely at artefacts and were shown how to prepare for a battle!

Welcome back!


The staff have all been impressed with the attitude and behaviour of the children at the start of this term. We have lots to look forward to such as: Gold Card reward nights and a Viking day as part of our topic for this term. We also have Featherstone Rovers coming in on a Thursday to work alongside the teachers for PE.


Homework will be handed out on a Friday and will be collected in on a Tuesday. Please support your children with this and read regularly with them to support their progress.
