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 ‘Paws, claws and whiskers’. We will be learning about different animals, 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 ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ – writing character descriptions, ordering the different parts of the story and writing our own endings to the story.

In Maths, we will be counting forwards and backwards starting at any given number, we will practise writing our numbers as digits and words. We will also be doing some addition and subtraction within 20 and learning measure different objects in length and weight.

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.
