A few things to remember:
Any child requiring an inhaler needs to have it in school every day.
- We enter, from 8.40am, and exit, from 3.15-3.30pm, through the green gate on Beech Walk.
- Please bring a named water bottle to school each day.
- If you have a sports afterschool club, wear your school uniform and bring your PE kit in a bag so that you can get changed after school.
- Please check all your clothes are labelled, especially coats and jumpers!
- Please remember our school uniform policy.
Please note the following days for your child to come to school ready in their PE kit. Hair should be tied back and earrings removed before school. If it is their swimming day, could children please come in their PE kit and bring their Swimming Kit to change into (no costumes under clothes):

Our topic this term is:
'Dig for Victory'
We will be investigating life on the British Home Front during WWII -
a significant turning point in British history. How did the British people cope with the Blitz, evacuation, rationing and having to ‘Make do and Mend’?
We will be finding out what it was really like for evacuees, growing our own vegetables, and even trying out some rationing food!
We will also be studying a couple of WWII themed books over the summer term, during English and Guided Reading lessons:
Letters from the Lighthouse By Emma Carroll and Code-cracking for Beginners
Remember to regularly visit our school library, and enjoy the wide variety of books it has on offer. Pick a reading book to read in school and at home.
Have you tried the Mundy Reading Challenge yet? Ask one of our class librarians for more information.
We will be choosing a NEW class reading book for this term - so please give your book suggestions to
Miss Lavery or Mrs Christie
