Reading and home learning expectations

 

Children will have a book in school which is closely linked to their phonics group and will read with an adult in school as often as possible. Each child has a set day to read and change their book but still bring it in every day!! 
 

Your child’s progress in reading will be helped hugely by reading at home.  This will form part of their homework, reading at least 5 minutes each night with an adult is the goal!

 

Children are more than welcome to read anything they would like to at home. 

 

Please read at least 3 times a week.and sign your child's diary! 

 

PE kits

 

PE is on a Monday. 

We also have Forest School on a Tuesday, please ensure that your child has appropriate clothing for getting muddy, especially as we are in Winter. Lots of layers are needed! 

 

 

 Our Curriculum Spring 1 The World 

 

 This term we are learning all about The World. 

In Geography we recap our knowledge of the UK and learn that it is part of Europe.  We learn lots about India and use our skills to compare India and the UK. 

In Science we are learning about life processes- living things and their habitats. 

In History we are learning about significant explorers, in particular about Ibn Battuta. 

In PSHE we are learning about our own strengths, friendships, looking after the environment, online safety and jobs. 

In RE we are learning about stories from the bible that teach us about being unique and friendship and how to care for one another. Children will learn about the Jewish practice of Tzedakah. 

In PE we are learning how to attack and defend and use our skills to mark our opponents. 

In Music we are learning a song called 'Sparkle in the sun' which is a jazz song.  The children will play instruments in time with the beat. 

In Computing we are learning all about the internet.  There is a lot of vocabulary to learn and the children need to be able to explain what they all mean! 

 

 Snack information

 

Please ensure you bring a water bottle to school every day filled only with water. There will still be fruit available for snack at break time. Please only bring healthy snacks. 

 

Communication

We communicate through Class Dojo, if you need me do not hesitate to drop me a message.
