Things to remember…

We change our library books every Tuesday morning.

This half-term, PE will be on Tuesday and Thursday. Full PE kits will be needed for both days.  This includes socks as tights are not to be worn with PE shorts.

Children bring home a reading book from school, please spend some time listening to them read and asking questions about the book. Spellings are sent home on a Friday for a test the following Friday.  Homework will also be sent home every Friday and is due back in school the following Thursday. 

What will we be doing this half-term?

Our topic this half-term is called ‘Dinosaur Planet’. We will be learning about different dinosaurs, how their body parts differ from human bodies and what they like to eat – herbivores, carnivores and omnivores.

In English, we will be reading the book ‘Meerkat Mail’ – writing character and place setting descriptions and also, writing postcards and emails to our little meerkat friends in the Kalahari desert. 

In Maths, we will continue practising to count forwards and backwards to 100 and also counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. As well as continuing our skills in addition and subtraction, we will start some work on multiplication and division through grouping and sharing.

Finally in PE, we will be working on teamwork and learning different team games.

Don’t hesitate to ask any questions. Our door is always open.
