Autumn 2



Welcome back! By the sounds of it, the children all had a wonderful half term!



  • This half term we are moving onto Geography and will be learning all about rivers. 
  • KIRFs (key instant recall facts) are focussed on 6x table this half term. 
  • The children will continue learning to play the ukulele - Mrs V (a visitor teaching the children to play) recommends which is free and requires no login to support the children. 


We have lots of exciting opportunities this half term including: a workshop at the Hive and a zoom workshop with the author of our upcoming book, Madge the Mermaid. 


It was lovely to meet you at parent consultations before half term. Please do catch me at the end of the day/ email the office if there is anything you would like to discuss. 


-Miss Armstrong.
