Things to remember…

We change our library books every Tuesday morning.

This half-term, PE will be on Tuesday 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 ‘The Enchanted Woodland’. We will be focusing on common plants and animals found living in the woodland and learning how to identify and classify them. 

In English, we will read ‘The Gruffalo’ and we will write our own stories. We will then read ‘The Bog Baby’ which we will write a non-chronological report about. We will also start our journey through Phonics Islands, hopping from island to island learning our Phase 3 Phonics Sounds.

In Maths, we will focus on counting forwards and backwards within 10 and grouping and ordering objects. 

In PE, we will be learning about passing and receiving the ball in catching games. 

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