Welcome to our new climbing frame.

Happy World Book Day.

Here we are at the Reading Museum. It was such fun!

Welcome back to a brand new year.

In English we have been exploring the narrative poem of 'The Highwayman'. We had great fun dressing up and acting the poem. Here are our photos of us in costume.

In RE this week we had a visit from the Imam to tell us about the life of Muhammed PBUH. We learnt about how some of the characters in the Bible also appear in the Quran.

It is Christmas!

We had a visit from Santa who kindly brought us some books to read.

Here are some photos of us with him.

Dear All

Welcome back to the second half of our Autumn Term.

We have now moved to our new classroom opposite Willow, which is lovely.

There are a couple of changes to note:

  • Indoor PE is now on Wednesday as opposed to Monday.
  • Music will now be taught on Tuesday.
  • French will now be taught on Thursday.

Please will you ensure that your child brings into school their reading record and reading book everyday. I will sign the reading record on a daily basis so that I can see that your child has read. Please will you record the pages read in the record so that I can ask appropriate questions to check understanding.

Thank you for your assistance.

Kind regards

Mrs Chesterman

We are Walnut Class!


I hope you all had an enjoyable summer holiday.

Here is some information regarding Walnut Class:

Monday - Indoor PE

Tuesday - Outdoor PE

The children are expected to read for 20 minutes every night. Please will you sign their reading record to confirm that they have read to you. I will be checking their records each morning.

Each child has been given their login and password for the TT Rock Stars. This forms the basis of their Maths homework. 

We are all looking forward to an exciting and enjoyable term.
