We are really excited that next week we will be having our Summer Fayre! It is the first time since 2019 that we have been able to hold this event and are really looking forward to inviting you to join us. The PTA have been really busy planning the details of the fayre and have lots of exciting things planned including a Bouncy Castle, Face Painting, Crafts, Games, BBQ, Raffle and the Choir will also be doing a performance in the Woodland area at 3:45pm.

Notes from the Teachers
Learning This Term
Year 1 and 2 are continuing with their topic 'Once Upon a Time' - they will be reading some traditional tales alongside some alternative versions of some old favourites. You can find out lots more about what the children will be learning by looking at the parent overviews on our KS1 page. There is also a useful document which details some of the vocabulary that we will be using with the children.
Key Stage 1 Learning Information:-
Reception have a new topic 'Amazing Adventurers'. They have already started the term as Adventurers by exploring the local area. Take a look at the Parent Overview as it details much more information about all the exciting learning that will be taking place this term. And remember - the weekly Newsletter gives lots and lots of detail about everything that is happening in Reception and is really worth a read. The link is always on this section of the News Page.
