A Curriculum newsletter is sent out at the start of each term which has these details too.

Kidgate Travel Services is open for business
Thank you to all parents and carers who came to our Year 2 Celebration of Learning. The children were very professional travel agents, using top tips from Rachel at Coop Travel, to plan out holidays with their customers. I think there were some very good deals and the children really showed their learning about places around the world, holidays and travel while making the whole experience as real as possible.
We have been investigating
Year 2 have been busy investigating different materials for holidays. We wanted to find a good material to help keep ice lollies cool on a hot day and we wanted to test out materials to use to make a bag to take to a water park.
We are now experts!
Thank you to Rachel from Coop Travel for allowing Year 2 to visit you at work and for coming into school to give us some top tips on being expert Travel Agents. We are ready to sell some holidays!
