Welcome to Earth Class!


Your teacher in Earth Class is Miss Reakes. Your teaching assistants are Mrs Young  and Miss Apsey. 


Children are to bring their book bags in every day and will be given one book at a time. This book can be changed once it has been read twice. Homework is given out every Monday in red homework folders and is due back in on a Friday.


Our PE days are Monday and Tuesday - please come dressed in PE kits on those days.


As the weather changes it would be advisable for children to have a warm coat with a hood for playtimes and when we are arriving and leaving school.


Thank you very much. 



Your new learning experience is... A Brush with Royalty


In this learning experience, the children will develop an understanding of our outdoors and be able to identify names of common (wild and garden) trees, plants and flowers.


Please see our curriculum newsletter below for more information.
