Welcome back! I hope you have had a wonderful break. I am so amazed by the children's attitude and enthusiasm towards learning as they have begun the new term. Alongside with me, the children will be supported by our brilliant teaching assistants Mrs Rounding and Mrs Adom. As a staff team, we work together to assess, support and challenge the children as appropriate.
This term, we will be exploring together ‘World At War!' We will be exploring the events of the WW1 and WW2; causes and facts and how they have reshaped the modern world. Please take some time to talk to your children about the topic, read books and stories, watch programmes and think of some questions they can explore in class.
We look forward to having a wonderful academic year.
