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 looking at the environment around us, examining trees and flowers and observing how they change throughout the different seasons.

In English, we will be reading the book ‘Ferdie and the Falling Leaves’ which we will link to our topic and learn about how the environment changes in  autumn.

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 10 and learning the names of different shapes.

Finally in PE, we will be working on balance, coordination and basic movements.

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