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!


Topic: Let's Celebrate!

Our topic this half term is 'Let's Celebrate'. This topic is full of lots of fantastic learning opportunities. The children will have the opportunity to learn about different religious celebrations, including: Diwali, Eid and The Christmas Story. Children will also be able to practice their computing skills in our IT suite and the iPads. We will end this fantastic half term by performing our Key Stage 1 Nativity at Nottingham High School on Friday 18th December (More information to follow).

How can you get involved?

In the coming weeks the class teachers will be handing you a letter asking you all about the toys you played with when you were young. It would be great if you could fill this in and give it the class teacher. We are going to share this information with the children.


PE Kit and Forest School

Seacole class will have P.E on Thursday.

Nightingale class will have P.E on Friday.

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.

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.
