‘Pick n Mix’ Topic Homework

We have given the children ‘Pick n Mix’ Topic homework. We would like the children to complete at least 3 items from the list given, during each half term. We love seeing any topic work that the children have completed at home and encourage them to bring these in for show and tell.

This term we went to HMS Vicotry in Portsmouth. We found out lots about the different parts and uses of a ship. We even met a real pirate called Captain Bertie Bogie!

Mystery Reader Volunteers Needed!




The aim of ‘Mystery Reader’ is to show children that adults love reading too so we would like to invite parents, grandparents or other family members to come into their child's class to read a children's story. This could be a book you particularly enjoyed reading when you were growing up, a current children's book brought from home or a book selected from the school library. The children will not know who is coming into their class for each session so it will be a surprise when their reader arrives.


We will be having ‘Mystery Reader’ sessions on Mondays, 2.50pm-3.10pm. If you would like to come in to be a mystery reader then please speak to Miss Bond or Miss Windle to book your slot.

We look forward to seeing you and hearing your stories!
