Burns’ Night, Valentine’s Day, Easter and Caithness will form the basis for our Big Writing this term.
Reading will continue to take place on a Monday, Tuesday and a Thursday.
Alongside the weekly spelling words, each pupil has their own personal spelling challenge to work their way through.
PE will consist of Scottish Country Dancing until Burns’ Night, when we will then move on to gymnastics. We will still walk a mile on a Tuesday morning – remember and wrap up for this as the cold weather is now most definitely here!
In addition, we will be learning about medicines/first aid.
We are taking a cross curricular approach in French, learning how to ask for and give the time. We will also practise numbers, greetings, colours, body parts and animals.
RME/Technologies/Expressive Arts/Social Studies/Science

We are delighted to have Mrs Mill back with us at school. Mrs Mill will take the class on a Monday morning for spelling, handwriting, VCOP and some mental maths. Ms Hood will continue to take the class on a Wednesday.
