Autumn Term 2019

Our Autumn term topic is 

       Turrets and Tiaras 

Stunning Start


The topic started with a ‘Stunning Start’ where children followed footprints of a dragon in the classroom. They found a hole burnt through the castle wall. They then received a message in a scroll asking children to help the Knight find this mysterious visitor!

In this topic children will explore castles, princesses, Dragons and knights through stories, science, history, geography and role play. Children will be looking at castles and how/why they were built. They will look at the different roles people played in a working castle.



Attendance and Punctuality


We do our very best to support your child’s learning and expect children to attend school every day, unless they are unwell.  We also expect children to arrive on time for every session. 

Children who have good attendance make good progress and achieve more highly.





Healthy Highlands

 At Highlands our aim is to help our children become healthy and happy citizens of the world. To support this we would like you to make sure your child has a water bottle to help keep them hydrated at school. They will also need to have a healthy breakfast before they come to school. We are also working hard to provide our children with the healthiest lunches possible to make sure they are ready to learn in the afternoon. On a Monday and  a Friday your child is allowed to have one treat in their lunch box. All children are able to bring a healthy snack to have at playtime such as a piece of fruit or cereal bar.
