French born, Henri Matisse was an artist known for his use of vibrant colours and simple shapes. He was a draughtsman, printmaker and sculptor but is mostly known for his paintings. Matisse enjoyed travelling and was influenced by art from other cultures. Alongside Picasso, he played an important part in the modern art movement.

Children will be given a list of Spellings every Monday which need to be learnt for the following Monday.

In addition they will have to complete a piece of work, one week based on Maths and the following on Reading Comprehension.

In addition children will take home a sheet with “KIRFs” ( Key Instant Recall Facts) every Half Term.

Reading is also very important. We encourage children to read with an adult as often as possible. We will be sending home a new book on a weekly basis. Please sign the reading record when you read with your child/children.




We have a shared library which has many interesting books. Children are encouraged to use it.





Physical Education takes place twice a week. It is very important that PE kits are kept in school at all times. Please mark each item clearly – that includes plimsolls, as it can quite difficult for your child to find them when they are all changing at once.


School Trips


We have three school trips a year, one each term.


More information about what your child is learning in school can be found on the curriculum map
