Class Information 



Children will start swimming on the FIRST DAY OF TERM 3 (TUESDAY 2nd JANUARY 2024)

Please use the Christmas holidays to make sure they have their swimming kit ready

They will need: swimming costume, towel, spare underwear, goggles, hair tie for long hair.

This will be one of our PE sessions until the Easter holidays.


Our main PE day is WEDNESDAY. Children will need to wear their PE kits to school. On days when there is a school Mass, children should wear their normal school uniform and bring in their trainers.



Homework is handed out on Fridays and expected back in by the following Thursday.

We use the CGP books and the children should write directly into these.

Typically, this will be weekly spellings, reading, maths and one other (for example, grammar, science or history).

Spellings Term 2



Term 2

This term, we have been working hard in DT on making a pyramid out of wood. Here we are cutting the word and using glue guns. We hope to finish them in the last week of term!

Term 1

This term, we performed a short assembly about our history topic: Ancient Egypt. There was singing, drama, the reading of myths we had written and - of course - plenty of history!     


In science, we have been learning about forces. These pictures show us finding the weight (measured in Newtons) and the mass (measured in grams) of different objects in the classroom.
