The Incredibles

Miss Finley and Mrs Preece (with Mrs Balint-Pratt)

Welcome to our class page! Here you can find out about our Incredible learning and adventures. You can view our photo gallery which will give you an insight into what it's like to be an 'Incredible'.

Useful Information.


Our P.E. days are Thursday (indoor with Miss Finley) and Friday (outdoor with Mr Bennett).

Children should bring white t-shirt, black shorts, black jogging bottoms, hooded jumper/jacket and appropriate footwear. Although our P.E. days are Thursday and Friday we recommend that P.E. kits are brought on Monday and left on your child's peg until Friday.

If your child has pierced ears we recommend that they do not wear earrings on P.E. days. If it is not possible for them to be removed  you should provide tape or plasters for them to be covered. School staff are not permitted to remove earrings.

Forest School.

Our Forest School session is Monday morning. We encourage children to come to school on this day dressed in old, warm, comfortable clothing that you don't mind getting muddy. Uniform should be brought in a bag for children to get changed into after the Forest School session.

Reading Books.

Your child will have a school reading book and a reading record (little orange book). This should be taken home and returned on a daily basis. We would encourage you or a family member to read with your child as regularly as possible, preferably daily. Your child's reading record is for anyone who reads with your child to date, sign and comment . Children will earn a 'Monster Point' every time it has been recorded that they have read at home.

As soon as your child can read their book fluently they can change it for a different book from their level. A member of their classroom staff will move them onto the next reading level when they feel they are ready. When a child moves up a reading level they are awarded 5 'Monster Points', given a certificate and have their name called out in the following Friday's celebration assembly. Names are also added to the School Newsletter at the end of that week. If you have any questions or would like some tips on how to support your child's reading please see Miss Finley or Mrs Preece.

Out of School Achievements.

We love to hear about what the children have been up to in their free time! If your child has taken part in an out of school activity we would love them to tell us about it , they can bring in photos, certificates or trophies and explain them to us in show and tell or our Friday celebration  assembly (which parents are welcome to attend.


Autumn Term 1

Super Me!

Our topic this half term is 'Super Me!'. We are using this topic to get to know each other and find out what qualities and talents we have that make us unique. 

As part of this topic in Geography we have been learning about our locality, which has taken us on lots of exploring around our local area, including a visit to the local cafe, a bus ride to a nearby town and a visit to a local train station. Ask an Incredible what features they might find in our village.

We have been learning to mix thick and creamy secondary colours and how to draw shapes with a ruler in preparation for our final art piece- we can't wait to see the end result!


Enterprise week

In enterprise week we made apple and blackberry crumbles to sell at school's Macmillan coffee morning. We went on a local walk to pick blackberries, picked apples from the school tree and made our own crumble topping. We followed instructions to peel, chop, weigh, rub and bake the ingredients to make 18 packs of crumble.   We wrote instructions for anyone wanting to have a go at making their own. We made posters to advertise the crumbles at the coffee morning. All 18 crumbles sold, raising £18 for this fabulous cause.
