Did you know?

There are over one billion bicycles found throughout the world.

Tandem bicycles are made to be ridden by two or more people

Although unicycles (one wheel) and tricycles (three wheels) don’t have two wheels, they are sometimes still referred to as ‘bikes’.

The energy required to cycle at low to medium speeds is roughly the same as the energy required to walk.

As well as search and rescue, helicopters are useful for tourism, medical transport, fighting fires, aerial photography, military activity and more.

The fastest speed recorded by a helicopter is around 248 mph.

Helicopters can be used to fight fires by carrying tanks or helibuckets filled with water.

Helicopters are sometimes called choppers.

The Channel Tunnel carries passengers between the UK and France on a high speed railway.

Trains can be powered by a variety of energy sources including steam, diesel and electricity.

Early trains relied on ropes, horses or gravity.


Ruby Documents


Welcome to our new handwriting scheme. Handwriting is a very important element of school life, and the associated skills need to be taught carefully. We have adopted the Letter-Join strategy for handwriting across the entire school and cursive script will be taught to everyone. We would love you to encourage your children to practise using the new letter formation! Details of how to download resources are available below.

A reminder that we have joined the Purple Mash community for teaching and learning computing and digital literacy. The children all have their own logins to access the games , activites and programs on the website, and they will be able to explain to you how it all works. If they have forgotten their login, we have a record of them and will be able to provide them to you! Click the picture to go to the login page.
