Reading Champions

We send home a reading book along with a Reading Champions Record book in your child's book bag. Please share this book with your child.

You can ask your child some questions about their book;

  • Where does the story take place?
  • Who are the characters?
  • Which part of the story do you like best?
  • What happens first in the story?
  • What happens in the middle of the story?
  • What happens at the end of the story?​

You can write in the record book to let us know how you are getting on;

  • Did your child like the book?
  • What was their favourite part?
  • Would you like a new book?

We change reading books on a Monday.


Mad About Maths


Each week we will send home a maths passport activity to help the children practise skills that will support their learning in class.

There will be a record book alongside this, where you can record your child's progress at home.

The children will share their learning with a grown up in class once a week.

Our Project

This term our project is "Who could live in a zoo?". We will be finding out lots of things about different types of animals, including what they look like, where they live and what they like to eat.

We would like to find out whether all of the different animals can live and play together in the zoo, who looks after the animals and whether there are dinosaurs at the zoo.

In our cooking lessons we will be tasting lots of different foods, as well as trying to make different food look exciting to eat - we will be trying to make our food look like some of the different animals.


On Wednesday 25th April we took part in Peppa Pig's Muddy Puddle Walk - we walked in Sankey Valley Park and looked carefully for lots of muddy puddles to jump in - we found some small ones, and some VERY big ones. We all had a fantastic time and got very muddy! Thank you very much for all of the sponsorship that you have worked hard to collect - We have beaten our target already!
