The Lost Sheep

We have been learning about the bible story 'The Lost Sheep' in RE and we put on a fantastic Collective Worship performance to the rest of the school. We really enjoyed inviting our parents in so that they could see how hard we had worked on it! The moral of the story is that God knows us all by name and doesn't want any of us to go astray, but if we do, he will forgive us on our return. 


Common Exception Words

As your child learns to read you might hear them talk about the 'exception words' they are learning. We explain what exception words are, what role they play in phonics learning and how you can support your child's developing reading and spelling skills at home. Exception words are words in which the English spelling code works in an unusual or uncommon way. They are not words for which phonics 'doesn't work', but they may be exceptions to spelling rules, or words which use a particular combination of letters to represent sound patterns in a rare or unique way.

Claude and Sir Bobblysocks

This term, we have been reading Claude and his adventures. We were so excited to receive his letters. He has even sent us his email address so that we can start to email him with questions about France and his adventures.



Sir Bobblysocks has taken a holiday, and poor Claude is feeling lonely. We have each designed a new sock friend for Claude. 


Lowry Art Workshop


On Monday 3rd December, we loved our visit to Art Works in Halifax. We spent the morning learning about Lowry and his art work.
