Trip to Leicester Cathedral 08/03/2017
In R.E. we have been learning about the beliefs of Christians. As part of this R.E. topic we will be visiting Leicester Cathedral on Wednesday 8th March. The children will need to be in full school uniform for the trip and they will require a packed lunch.
Many thanks to all of the parents who attended the SATs information meeting. There will be two more SATs meetings before the children take the SATs in May, details will be sent out by letter in the next few weeks. Your help and suport at home is incrediably beneficial to your child's learning and progress. Remember that doing a small amount of work regularly really helps your child to practise and consolidate thier learning. Also, reading regularly at home and completing weekly spellings and homework activities considerably supports your child's learning.
P.E. Kit Reminder
The children take part in P.E. lessons once or twice a week. A such, they require a named P.E. kit in school so that they are able to fully participate in P.E. lessons both indoors and outdoors. Many thanks for your support with this.

Well done to all of the children for their hard work and effort this half term!
On Monday 12th September, Year 2 enjoyed a fun trip to Twycross Zoo. They viewed diverse animals from all over the world, from ring-tailed lemurs to kangaroos. In addition to that, they attended a class learning about how animals are adapted to their habitats and even had the opportunity to stroke a chinchilla and a cockroach.
Since visiting the zoo, the children have been learning about non-fiction writing, and are all working towards writing their own information text about an animal from Twycross.
