Primary National Curriculum 

Parent Planners

Each term, before the children embark on their learning in a new topic, we send home a Parent Topic Planner explaining for parents and carers the learning opportunities across the curriculum that each child will receive. Teachers select and suggest useful websites and places to visit which will enhance and prepare the child for the topic they are about to start. There are also useful dates and a bank of topic words that families may choose to talk through with their children.

Year 4 Trip to Hampton Court Palace

Immediately after half term, Year 4 were fortunate enough to have their school trip in Hampton Court Palace, beside the Thames. Wow! Every one of us found it to be an exciting place full of history, tales and intrigue. We saw where Henry lived as a young boy; the great hall where he would feast; the kitchens where his staff would cook over a colossal stove; and many other rooms packed full of exquisite paintings! One highlight for many people in our classes was the workshop where we re-enacted the joust between Henry VIII and Charles Brandon, the Duke of Suffolk. We are now creating our own stories based on this in class.
