New PE times for at school pod children

Starting next week we have 3 sessions of PE per week. These will be Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Please can those children in school wear PE clothes to school on these days. 

Kings and Queens

This term the focus of our kings and queens topic will centre around Windsor Castle. We will find out when it was built and what it was like to live there during this time, and compare this to how it is used and lived in today.  

We will look at the geographical features surrounding Windsor Castle and use maps and aerial photographs to identify these.

In science we will be finding out about the changing seasons and will look at the differences between evergreen and deciduous trees. 

Our focus in English will be on reading non-fiction texts, and we will produce our own non-chronological report about castles. 

This term we will continue to work on addition and subtraction, including knowing number bonds to ten, as well as writing numbers correctly using numerals and words.


Sycamore class with start the day at 8:40 and finish the day at 3:10. You will come into school and leave school using the door on the Reception Playground next to Maple class door. You will need to come into school using Gate A (back of school, by the Reception playground). You will need to leave school using Gate B (by the adventure playground, Key Stage 1 playground). 


Your child will bring home a new reading book every Monday and Thursday. Please read with them as often as you can, everyday would be brilliant!


Our regular PE sessions on Monday and Friday.


We will do PE outside whenever it is possible. Please ensure your child has suitable outdoor PE kit, including outdoor shoes, in school at all times. PE kits will go home on Fridays to be washed. Children will be unable to borrow spare PE kit.
