Are you fed up with asking the question 'How was school today?' and getting the response 'fine'?
Our new weekly blogs will give you more information about what your child is doing in school. This will mean that you can ask meaningful questions to find out about their learning.

Term 4 Overview
The theme for term 4 is Climate Change. This is a Geography and Science term with an emphasis on learning about plants and the impact of climate change on global warming. There will be opportunities for children to plant a variety of plants including radish, lettuce, tomatoes and wheat as part of their project to design and make a food product later in the year. In addition, children will be learning about the activist Greta Thunberg and writing their own speeches inspired by hers. During this term the pupils will also be reading the text 'The Paperbag Prince' and looking at plant poetry. In addition, PSHE, PE and other well-being activities will be integrated into the afternoons to support pupils' reintegration back into school following the Term 3 Lockdown.
