Childline Schools Service

Here is the weekly timetable for class 4. Here is the topic web for the term.  The topic for the Autum term is Brazil.

Although PE is timetabled for set days, please ensure your child has their PE kit in school at all times as inclement weather can effect our timetabling. Can pupils also ensure that they have a waterproof coat in school as we are often outside for outdoor learning.
