Teaching Assistants: Mrs Snow and Mrs Elliott

This half term we will be taking on an exciting curriculum project called ADRIFT.

Our vision for ADRIFT 

We aim to create hope for our children, in a world that has many challenges. Our children will develop a greater understanding of the world and where those  who have been displaced from their homes come from. Children will gain secure geographical knowledge in the context of a human experience and explore the  concept of ‘Home’. Through the work that we do children will be able to form their own views of the  world based on fact and understand why prejudices may occur. Where appropriate they will be able to question things they may read, see or hear in the media. They will be able to engage in conversations with their families, helping to pivot perceptions and break down stereotypes. Our children will be empowered to turn their empathy into action and believe that  they can make a difference in the world.

Our new book and topic for Spring term is:

The Silence Seeker by Ben Morley.

Useful Information:

  • Please note- our PE day is now on a Tuesday. In order for your child to take part, please ensure your child has a PE kit which must contain a top, shorts/jogging bottoms and trainers/pumps. PE kits should stay in school as we may have the chance for extra PE lessons/enrichment activities.


  • Our homework is given out on Friday and must be returned by Tuesday. Homework alternates between an activity on the homework grid and mathletics. The homework grid can be found in your child's yellow homework book or in the 'homework grid' tab. Please also practice the times tables that your child is on. They are tested each week and cannot move on to the next times table until they answer them all correctly. This includes multiplication, division and word problems.


  • School lunches cost £2.30. Please provide the correct change in a named purse, wallet or envelope. 


  • If you would like your child to have milk it can be purchased on the 'cool milk' website. Hot snacks are also available during morning break time. Prices are listed below:
