Things to remember…

We change our library books every Tuesday morning.

This half-term, PE will be on Monday and Wednesday. 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 ‘Memory Box’. We will be learning about things in the past and how toys, objects and transport have changed over the years.

In English, we will be reading the book ‘The Naughty Bus’. We will focus on writing alternative stories based on the Naughty Bus story. We will also continue focusing on learning phase 5 phonic sounds.

In Maths, we will be practising to count from 0-100, counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, practising to write the digits 0-20 and also starting to spell the numbers 1-10 in words. We will be adding and subtracting numbers to 20 and also learning our number bonds to 20. We will be using equipment, such as, number lines and 100 squares to count. Finally we will be learning the names of different 2D and 3D shapes.

In PE, we will be working on basic movement and throwing and catching skills over the half term.

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