We will be generating our literacy work for Spring 1 from Shackleton’s Journey by William Grill


Shackleton’s Journey is a unique visual re-telling Ernest Shackleton’s landmark expedition crossing the Antarctic from one pole to the other. William Grill’s impeccably researched and informative illustrations celebrate the 100th anniversary since the historic exploration by Shackelton and his crew on Endurance .

This term our PE sessions will be on a Tuesday morning (until swimming begins) and Thursday afternoon. Please ensure that children wear their PE kits to school. House colours if possible.

Forest school sessions will take place  on a Wednesday. It is important that children have wellies in school  to be able to join in Forest School sessions. It would be a great idea to keep them in lockers for the term.
