As you are aware the children will be visiting Warwick Castle on the 13th February. Although the journey to Warwick Castle is long, we have decided to go for many reasons. I wanted to explain and share some of those reasons so that you have an insight to the wonderful experience your child will be part of.
Warwick Castle has a range of daily shows and attractions that the children will get to see. Along with touring the huge castle grounds the children will take part in two workshops.
The first workshop the children will take part in is 'Castle Life' where students gain an understanding of medieval life through the exploration of jobs, wages and lifestyle. We’ll focus on those who would have lived and worked in and around the castle during preparations for battle! The second workshop is 'Meet the Monarchy' where children will explore the roles and qualities of monarchs throughout time! Speaking from experience, the trip to Warwick Castle is truly fantastic. The day is filled with amazement, fun and wonder.
If you have any questions feel free to ask me. If you want to have a look for your self the website for Warwick Castle is linked below.
Welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

This term our science topic is Everyday Materials. This week the children were set the task of building a wolf proof house for the three little pigs. They had to choose suitable materials that would make their house strong, so that the Big Bad Wolf (Miss Dempsey) could not blow their house down. The children had great fun and were very creative when designing their houses.
Hello all, as parents evening is approaching I have found a useful document which covers what will be expected of your child in Year One. Please take a look as having an awareness of expectations will give you an insight to where you child is at. Any questions please just ask.
Below are links to websites which are great for practising phonics at home. In Spring time the children will take a Phonics Screening test. Phonics is key at this stage in the children's learning and practising at home will aid your child's progression.
