Spring 1

I can't believe that we are at the end of our Superhero topic already - It's gone as quick as The Flash! From squashing evil peas in maths, to investigating different ways to free the superhero vegetables from their icy prisons, the children have certainly had a blast. Please see our Superhero topic photostory below!

Many thanks for your continued support with reading and homework. Just a reminder, that books have been allocated on Bug Club and also Mathletics is set each week, consolidating the children's learning. Please ensure that all clothing is named and water bottles only contain water.

We had a very successful Stay & Play session, which was followed by an informative Maths workshop!  A copy of the Maths powerpoint used is available for you to download below. We will be arranging a writing workshop in the Summer Term and will send out a letter nearer the time. 

In the 'files to download' section below, you will find a lovely photostory showing some of the busy learning activities that the children, and grown-ups, got up to at the Stay and Play session.


Oak and Elm class will shortly be given Bug Club and Mathletic log in details so that they can access books and maths activities at home too.  


  • Please make sure that all of your childs' things are named. This includes: lunch boxes, water bottles and PE bags as well as uniform and coats.
  • Oak & Elm will have PE on a Friday. Please make sure PE kits are in every week - they should be left in school during term time and will be sent home every half term for washing. Encourage the children to get themselves changed each morning and this will help them with the skills required in school.  
  • School meals are provided free of charge. Please remember to discuss meal options with your child before school so that they know what they are having for lunch.
  • There is the opportunity for the children to have milk at snack time.  Please book your child in at
