‘Only my best is good enough’

Welcome to Hippo Class!hippo-head-hi

Autumn 2017

We love learning outside – keep an eye on this page for information about the exciting learning we get up to!


  • Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday – please make sure you have PE kit in school on these days.
  • Our Forest School day is on Tuesday – please make sure you have your Forest School kit (including wellies and a warm and waterproof coat) on this day!
  • Every day children need their reading book, their homework diary “monkey book” and purple HFW books in school.


Our topic is ‘Polar Explorers’. We are learning all about the polar regions, animals in the Arctic and Antarctic, different explorers, Inuit people, how animals stay warm. If you can do any research at home, bring it in to school and we can see what you have been learning!
