Behind the Class Names
Florence Nightingale was a pioneer for good standards for nurses in hospitals. She paved the way for safe and clean healthcare!
Mary Seacole was best known for going against prejudice and social rules. She was a key nurse during the Crimean war and helped to save lots of lives.
Mary Anning was best known for being a key female fossil hunter in the Victorian times. She discovered many remains of dinosaurs and even the first skeleton of the Plesiosaurus!
Our topic this half term is ‘Victorians’. The children will be using their history skills to explore how children lived during the Victorian times and will compare it to modern day. Through teacher led activities and independent exploration children will be able to observe Victorian artifacts, including toys.
We have a school trip planned to Perlesthorpe Education Centre on Monday 18th October 2021. Please look out for a letter confirming prices and more information.
PE Kit and Forest School
Seacole class will have P.E on Monday.
Nightingale class will have P.E on Monday.
Anning class will have P.E on Wednesday and Thursday.
Please ensure you bring the correct P.E kit, labeled with your child's name, on these days.
Seacole and Nightingale classes - Please send your children to school in the correct P.E. kit on their P.E. day (black jogging bottoms/leggings, white t-shirt/polo and black plimsolls). Please do not send children in tights for their P.E. lessons as these can cause them to slip on our sports hall floor.
Nightingale & Anning class have Forest School on Fridays.
Seacole class have Forest School on Thursdays.
Please ensure your child brings a warm coat and wellies on this day. It would be useful to practice putting the wellies on at home so no time is wasted at school.
