Peter Thorpe. Peter Thorpe, age 58, was born in 1957, in Portland, Oregon. While attending an exchange program at Lincoln College, Oxford, England studying art and literature, he met Pauline Baynes, the artist best known for illustrating The Chronicles of Narnia  by C. S. Lewis and The Tolkien Reader by J. R. R. Tolkien. Baynes encouraged Peter to pursue his interests in illustration.

Reading books-

The children will follow the ‘Accelerated Reader Programme’ and will take a book home from the classroom library.


Maths KIRFs-

These will be related to year group expectations.

There will be one KIRF sheet every half term.


Spelling words – These will be related to year group expectations. They will be given out on a Monday and tested the following Monday. 


Spelling homework books-

This will support the children with learning their spelling words. Following on from the spelling rule taught in class, the children will be expected to write sentences containing the spelling words. This will be marked in class on a Monday.




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
