Wheelie Wednesday

Now that the weather is likely to be warmer, Wheelie Wednesday is back! This summer term we will have 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.

Use of planners

Planners should be checked daily for notes from school and any notes for teachers, including collection arrangements, should be noted in the planner. Reading (including book title and chapter or page numbers) should be recorded at least 3 times a week in planners and initialled by parents. Planners need to be signed by parents at the end of each week ready for the teacher’s signature on Monday morning. Pupils must take responsibility for ensuring this happens every week.

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:

A very exciting science topic to start the year - Rocks and Fossils!

Recently, the children have been studying volcanoes and they all took part in an experiment which simulated a volcanic eruption! Your children should be able to remember the ingredients for this experiment, maybe you could have a go at home? 


Here's a few pictures of the moment the chemical reaction took place:
