Religious Education
We are a Church of England school and this is a big part of our curriculum.

A St James' child values the fruits of the spirit in everything they do.


How do you show the fruits of the spirit?

Today we all made a Christingle.

We learnt that the orange symbolises the world, the red ribbon shows Gods love, the sweets show the four seasons and the candle demonstrates that Jesus is the light of the world.

We had fun singing our Christmas song and lighting our Christingles.

We have been learning all about how Hindu's celebrate Diwali. We had great fun making our own Mehndi Patterns and Diva Cups. We even tried some Indian food...


We have 2 PE sessions each week.
This half term, our 'REAL Foundations' session will be focusing on footwork and our 'REAL Gym' session will be focusing on shape and travel...


Lesson 1 will be every Thursday
Children need to come to school wearing their PE kit

Lesson 2 will be every Monday
Children do not need to wear their PE kit for this session, they will remove their shoes and socks in school

Vocabulary List
Take a look at our vocabulary list...


Vocabulary is so important because it;

improves reading comprehension, lends itself to language development, helps children to communicate their ideas
and supports children to express themselves in writing


Busy Learning
In our classroom environment, both inside and outside, we have lots of fun activities. 
These activities cover all areas of the EYFS curriculum.

We complete these independently and we call this busy learning!
