'A dedicated community working together, nurturing a safe, happy school where all children can achieve their potential'


Our focus this half term is...



Alongside our main focus, throughout the year we periodically investigate our changing world. This year we have already investigated the difference between Evergreen and Deciduous trees, the different type of seeds we can find in our local area and the flowers we can find at different stages of the year. Last half-term we focused on everything rocks and explored and investigated their properties and where they are sued in everyday life. We will continue to come back to these topics at different stages of the year to see how the trees, seeds and flowers have changed depending on the weather and season!


Our Science lessons are on Monday and Friday, with most of our practical lessons this half term being on Monday. I have found that having two days for Science has really helped the children to embed their understanding and explain their results at a higher level.
