Things to remember…

We change our library books every Tuesday morning.

This half-term, PE will be on Monday 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 all different dinosaurs, whether they are omnivores, carnivores or herbivores, examining their different body parts and discussing what type of habitat they lived in.

In English, we will read the book ‘Meerkat Mail’. We will be writing our own animal stories and practising writing letters and postcards, like in ‘Meerkat Mail’. We will also continue focusing on learning phase 5 phonic sounds.

In Maths, we will focus on multiplication (grouping objects in equal groups) and division (sharing objects equally). We will also continue to practise counting, addition and subtraction problems.

In PE, we will be learning different games and different movement skills.

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