Curriculum Plans


Our Teacher is Miss Berry and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Oliver. Our SEN Teaching Assistants are Miss Baldock, Mrs Begum and Miss Read.

We are very lucky to have Mrs Reed who is our Teacher on Tuesday afternoons, and Mr Ilori who teaches us P E on Thursday afternoons. Mrs Monk teaches us French on Thursdays.


During the summer term, we take part in a three-day residential trip to a PGL centre. This gives pupils the chance to try out both land and water based activities and to build their confidence. It is a fantastic learning experience as well as being great fun!

Our PE slots are Tuesday and Thursday, but we ask that children leave their PE kits in school, as times can change at short notice. PE will be in the hall and also outside as much as possible. Please make sure your child has jogging bottoms as well as shorts in case the weather is chilly. They must also keep trainers or plimsolls in school as part of their PE kit.

Science: Life Cycles - We will be looking at the life cycle of plants and humans. In our investigations we plant seeds and watch them develop through the different stages of the life cycle.
