  • Our PE day is on a Monday. The children will need plain black jogging bottoms or shorts, a white t-shirt and jumper and they will also need pumps or trainers.
  • Swimming lessons will be every Wednesday morning until for the second half of the year, this is AFTER February half term.

Our Learning

In Pine class we desire for our children to be safe and happy, as well as being excited and challenged by their learning. We provide an environment where each child can strive to be the best they can be. The curriculum topics are organised and planned to enable pupils to demonstrate progression of skills built on from previous years, as well as allowing the opportunity to teach and learn new subject knowledge. 

The topics that will be taught this year in Pine show a full coverage of the National Curriculum as well as providing learning opportunities that will capture the creativity and imagination of our children. It is through these topics we endeavor to Believe in God, ourselves and others. 

Our topic work this year begins in the Autumn with Ancient Greece, and will be followed by London vs Paris , World War 2, Global Trade, Tudors and Sustainability. Activities and trips are planned to inspire and enthuse the children and lead to creative writing opportunities.
