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 stoy 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 activity to help the children practise skills that they have been 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 Topic

This term our topic is People Who Help Us. We will be finding out lots of things about the people in our communities who do different jobs to help us each day, including the fire brigade, police and doctors. We will be finding out how lots of other people do different things to help us, like shop keepers, lollipop men and women, and our teachers and school staff. In our cooking lessons we will be tasting lots of different foods, as well as trying to make different food look exciting to eat.


On Monday 12th June, Holly class visited the North West Museum of Road Transport in St Helens as an end to our topic on Transport. We saw 75 different buses and got the chance to climb aboard and drive some of them. We had a great time and even had the chance to sit in a prison bus!  Here are some of the pictures of our great visit.
