Reading Books

Each child will be given 2 books to take home. The first is a phonetically decodable book from our new reading scheme. This book matches the phonics phase that your child is secure with. Your child should be able to read this to you with minimal segmenting and blending. Please encourage your child to read this on a daily basis to develop fluency for reading.

The second book is from our school library. This book is for you to read to your child and is intended to develop a love for books and reading.

Book bags should be brought into school on a Friday to enable us to quarantine any books before resending them out the following Monday. This will enable the rereading of books to develop fluency and comprehension and will enable us to manage any risks associated with Covid-19. When reading with an adult in school, we will be using school books and keeping a separate reading record.


P.E. will take place on a Tuesday and Thursday and will place outside whenever possible. Please send your child to school in their P.E. kits on these days. They will wear their P.E. kits all day. In line with school policy, earrings must be removed for P.E. lessons.

History - Proud History Bright Future

As part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations we will join in with a whole school project exploring the history of Calne.

We will investigate the importance of the Harris Pork Facory and well as recognising the importance of farming to the community.



Science - Super Scientists

This term is all about 'Super Scientists'. The children will have the opportunity to learn about scientists and their discoveries while developing their own 'working scientifically' skills. This unit will extend their knowledge through a variety of fun, practical and informative activities, including investigating gravity, light, sound, medical science including reflexes and germs, as well as how to make a simple circuit.
