On the left-hand side, you will find downloadable copies of the class newsletters; these outline the topics and knowledge that your children will be exploring and learning in each half-term.

On the right-hand side, you will find the English and Mathematics' Long-Term Plans, and also the Knowledge Organisers for the Foundation Subjects. These documents set out the key knowledge and specific vocabulary that your children will be learning in each of the subjects, each term. These correlate with the Long-Term Plans, that can be found under the 'Curriculum' page. These documents provide a full overview of how the new learning fits into our whole school curriculum, building upon prior knowledge and also supporting future learning.

We recognise reading as the key to unlocking learning and future success and so you will find, below, the recommended reads, for your children, throughout this year.
