Things to remember…

We change our library books every Tuesday morning.

This half-term, PE will be on Tuesday 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 ‘Paws, Claws and Whiskers’. We will be learning about all different animals, wild and domestic, whether they are omnivores, carnivores or herbivores and examining their different body parts.

In English, we will read the book ‘Never Follow a Dinosaur’. We will focus on writing alternative stories based on the this story and we will be making some persuasion posters. We will also continue focusing on learning phase 5 phonic sounds.

In Maths, we will practise adding and subtracting within 20, counting and making numbers to 50 and we will measure and weigh different objects. 

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

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