Outdoor PE continues on a Monday afternoon and so children should come to school in full outdoor PE kit to wear for the whole day.  

The next group start Forest School on Tuesday 3rd November in the afternoon for five weeks. Children who are selected for the next group of 10, were given a letter before the half term holiday and should come to school in their Forest School clothes for the whole day.

Homework is now online and paper copies of spelling words will no longer be given out after the half term holiday.  Homework  should be completed online using Spelling Frame and Numbots.  Logins and passwords have already been sent home in homework folders last half term.   Children should also be reading to an adult at least three times a week.

We enjoyed a lovely walk around our local area this week. We were looking for physical and human features around Highwoods Square and Highwoods Country Park.  We also learnt how to cross the road safely using STOP, LOOK and LISTEN. Thank you to the parent helpers who volunteered.
