Hello this is Mrs White’s class page. Here you will find information about our class and learning. I hope that you find it useful.

This term our topic is At The Zoo


Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday but please make sure that your PE kit is in school every day as there may be other sporting opportunities you will need to change for.

Please also remember to read regularly and to practice your spellings and times tables. These will help you to be successful in our Super Spelling and Super Hero challenges!
