Please make sure that your child has their PE kit in school every week. They will need suitable trainers, as most of the time we will be outside.

Character Curriculum

This term has seen the launch of our new 'Character Curriculum'. It is designed to help the children  become more resilient in the challenges they face in school and enable them to develop strategies to deal with the emotions they encounter on a day to day basis. The teaching is being done through the film 'Inside Out' and the children will be encouraged to talk about their feelings and be given strategies to work together to solve problems. We are looking forward to seeing the children develop their resilience and problem solving skills.
