On Wednesday, a SUFC coach delivers the PE session. Please ensure that PE kits are brought in on Monday so the children are properly prepared for both lessons. At times, we may go outside for PE, a warm jacket or jumper may be beneficial during the colder temperatures. Please ensure that all PE kit is labelled clearly with your child's name. Although we try to make sure kit goes home with the right child, this is sometimes a struggle and misplaced kit can be located in the Y1 shared area.



Home learning menus are given out at the start of every half term highlighting activities and projects the children can complete based on their current topic. Children will be encouraged to complete homework from the home learning menu from their class teacher.


Please do share photographs of your children carrying out the tasks by e-mailing them to

Autumn 2:


Meet Supertato! He's always there for you when the chips are down. He's the superhero with eyes everywhere - but now there's a pea on the loose. A very, very naughty pea. Has Supertato finally met his match?


Traction Man

With an action outfit for every occasion, Traction Man patrols the house. Whether he is saving toys (in latex space suit and Perspex helmet, teamed with Rocket Boots) or rescuing damsels in distress (in jungle pants, camouflage vest and a bandanna), he is the last word in heroic fashion flair - until, that is, the day that he is presented with an all-in-one knitted green romper suit and matching bonnet by his owner's granny. Can Traction Man overcome the humiliation of his desperately dowdy new look and rediscover the action hero within or will the burden of the knitted green monstrosity be too great?


Eliot, Midnight Superhero

By day, Eliot is a quiet boy who likes to read and play with his toys. But when the clock strikes midnight, Eliot is transformed into a superhero! When he's not showing off his incredible swimming skills or wowing the crowds with his expert lion-taming, you can find him assisting the Queen. One day Eliot receives an urgent message from the world's Most Important Scientists: a giant meteor is hurtling towards Earth!



The wiggly, squiggly superhero is now available in paperback. Never fear, Superworm's here! He can fish Spider out of a well, and rescue Toad from a busy road. But who will come to Superworm's rescue, when he's captured by a wicked Wizard Lizard? Luckily, all of Superworm's insect friends have a cunning plan...
