The launch of the Summer Term and Alice in Wonderland

The launch of the Summer Term and Alice in Wonderland 1

Summer 2019


The Summer Term has now begun with much excitement and anticipation about Alice in Wonderland. 


The topic launched on the first day back when the children were greeted by staff donning costumes inspired by the book.


Alongside the text, we will also be learning about the Victorians, their day to day life and how it was the same and different to today.


We have a visit to school by History off the page planned for Tuesday 4th June plus a trip to Audley End. 


Homework will continue to be sent home on a Friday to be returned the following Wednesday.

PE days

Monday - Chestnut and Beech

Tuesday - Larch, Chestnut and Beech

Thursday - Larch


Children are expected to have their named PE kits in school for these sessions.  As the days are now quite cold it would be useful if your child could also have a jumper and tracksuit bottoms as well as the usual t-shirt, shorts and trainers.  Children should ensure that long hair is tied back, no jewellery or watches are worn and earrings are removed for any PE sessions.  If children need to remove earrings during the day, then they should be able to do this themselves and have a suitable container to store them in.


We are always happy to answers any queries that you may have but we would request that you come to see us after school via the office rather than the morning, as this is a very busy time of day.

Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your teacher know!
