Christian Value

Our focus for this half term is COMPASSION. We will be adding to our Values tab how we are exploring how that looks in our school and how we can live it out in our lives, as Jesus taught us to.

The Good Samaritan

This parable explains beautifully who we should show compassion towards. You can find the story in Luke, chapter 10.

God's Story: The Good Samaritan

God of Justice
A fantastic worship song, reminding us that we must act for justice, showing compassion towards those who have little or are suffering around us and in the world.

Religious Education


Our RE enriches all of our learning. This half term, we are looking at the question...


Who is a Muslim and what do they believe?


Keep a lookout for the artwork we will be creating during this unit this half term!

A message for parents/carers: Any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me either on the door in the morning/afternoon or anytime by email. 


Our second topic for the Autumn term is called, 'Fire, Friend or Foe?'.  The topic will allow the children to learn all about the facts of the Great Fire of London in 1666.


Here is our Knowledge Organiser.








Our first topic is a geography/history focus based on our first class book in Literacy  - The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch.


Have a look at our Knowledge Organiser below.


Little Wandle Phonics

Across school we use the Little Wandle Phonics approach to learning phonic sounds.  From Reception to Year 2, the children enjoy a daily phonics lesson.

We love to read...


Children will have a school reading book to take home and enjoy reading with their family.  Please sign and comment in your child's school reading planner when your child has read with you at home.


We will be reading a class book at the end of every day with the children. 


This half term, we have chosen Julia Donaldson as the author we would like to study.  We are looking forward to reading as many books as possible by this fantastic author between now and Christmas.  Which one will be your favourite?



We started Y2 by reading a true classic...The Twits by Roald Dahl!


We have a well resourced school library where the children are allowed to select a book. 

There is also a reading corner in the classroom with designated slots when the children can enjoy a quiet read.
