Weekly News

This term’s theme is happiness. We are learning all about what makes us happy, inside and out! We will be learning about discoveries in medicine, how to take care of our bodies and how to keep ourselves safe and happy.   

This week we have learnt about Marie Curie, her discoveries of X-rays and history-defying ability to win not one but two Nobel prizes! We have been looking at what makes foods healthy and unhealthy and discussed healthy substitutes for some sugary/salty treats. We have also been learning about the UK. Can you work out what part of the UK Alexander Fleming is from? 


  • Our PE day has now been moved from Tuesdays to Thursdays. Our next PE lesson will therefore be on Thursday 24th September. There will be no PE this coming Tuesday (22nd), or any Tuesdays thereafter.    


  • Please send your child in on Thursdays wearing full PE kit. Unfortunately, children cannot take part in PE unless they arrive to school in their PE kit – to help prevent the chances of contamination. Thank you everybody for your help to keep our community safe.
