Penguin Class  - Term 4


 Term 3 prayer


God our Father, 

As we begin this year, we remember the arrival of the Wise Men at the crib. 

Through them you show us that your love reaches to all places and all people. 

Help us to reach out in faith and love too, 

So that others may know that we are all your children. 

We make this prayer through Christ, your Son. 



Wow!   We have now approached Term 4  and now half way through the school year.

Hasn't time flown?

We are lucky enough to have another term of Forest school, every Tuesday. Year 5 will have the morning session so please wear Forest school clothes to school and bring your uniform ready for afternoon learning. Year 6 will have the afternoon session so please bring Forest school clothing in a bag ready to change into at lunchtime. Make sure you bring all the necessary equipment, as it may still  be wet, windy and chilly, but hopefully warmer weather will be here soon.

There is lots of exciting learning for us all this term including finding out about our exciting new topic, Our changing world. 


Year 6 SATS after school  booster groups will be starting up this term, so please keep your eyes out for further information.










 Mrs Simpson and Mrs Clipstone.


    Respect.    Play safe.    Right to learn.



Now that we are in years 5 and 6

New things will be added to the learning mix

Difficult calculations, forms of writing

Each term will be so exciting.



The days will be cold now so remember to wrap up warm and remember your water bottle!


**Please wear your PE kit to school on  Mondays and Thursdays
