Wheelie Wednesday

Wheelie Wednesday will happen in the summer term where there will be sessions for years 1-5.


When it is your child’s class turn they will be able to bring to school either a bike, scooter or roller skates to play on at lunchtime, supervised by staff and parent volunteers. We must insist that if they are playing on any kind of wheels at lunchtime then they must wear a cycling helmet and for skating, knee and wrist protectors.


As before, we will have to review the event week by week as the weather changes. As standard we propose that the children will be able to ride their bikes on the field whilst skating and scooting will take place on the astro.

SRE Curriculum

This year we will continue to teach the children using materials from our new Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) scheme. This new edition of ‘Teaching SRE with Confidence in Primary Schools’ reflects the recent developments in SRE and the Science National Curriculum. This resource encourages children to develop the skills of listening, empathy, talking about feelings and relationships with families and friends.


All the lessons have a clear structure and are age appropriate. The lesson plans have clear aims and learning outcomes with suggested additional activities and accompanying resources:


Year 1: Growing and Caring for Ourselves-

Story telling week - we made the Three Little Pigs House, retold the story through acting and made some puppets of the different characters!

Ice experiments! In Science we explored ice by saving a lego man. We took this learning into our choosing time and created our own experiment outside.

Our focus book has been Penguin By Polly Dunbar. We took to the stage to perform a version of Penguin with our peers.

We have been working on doubling and halving in maths. We loved our game of bingo!
