Myself and Mrs Anderson are very excited about the coming year and I hope that for the children it will be a very memorable one, for all the right reasons of course.
Please ignore what follows on the page below as this all still from last year.
As soon as the page is archived I shall be adding all relevant information relating to the current year.

Term 3 and 4 - Were the Vikings always vicious and victorious?
This term we will be explore the Vikings! We will be learning about how the Vikings travelled over to Britain and what happened once they settled. Look out for a class trip to the Dover Museum on 6th February and a Viking Day at Kent Life on 23rd March. We have a busy term coming up with lots of activities included such as making Viking Longboats, drawing portraits of Vikings, looking at what Vikings ate and what life was like for a Viking Child.
This term in English we will be reading Viking Boy by Tony Bradman. We will be writing to inform. Over the term we will be looking at writing a biography and a newspaper report.
This term we will be looking at multiplication, division, area, perimeter and fractions. During this term we are lucky enough to have a workshop being ran by Metro Bank and look out for NSPCC number day on 7th February.
Lets get reading!
This year we are having a massive push on reading for pleasure and enjoying books at home. The class have been set a challenge! Members of the class who receive their Fox reading bug (read 150 times ay home) by the end of the academic year, they will be able to enjoy a trip to Flip Out! Make sure you are signing those reading journals!
