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. 
 

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 be it magazines, comics, computer games or even recipes (we know how much all parents love having "help!" in the kitchen ;-)) to promote a 'love for reading'!

Please read at least 3 times a week.

 

PE kits

 

PE is on a Wednesday and Friday.  

We also have Forest School on a Tuesday, please ensure that your child has appropriate clothing for getting muddy, especially as we are coming into Autumn.

 

 

 Our Curriculum Autumn Term 1

 

 This term we are learning all about Great Britain...there's a lot to learn!

We will be going on a trip to Formby beach and forest.  This is for us to explore coastal areas, habitats, native plants and animals, for Science and Geography and not forgetting to have fun.

In History we are going to be finding out all about The Great Fire of London, I wonder what you can find out at home?

Science is all about native plants and animals and Geography will be comparing coastal towns and our local area.

I will send home knowledge organisers with your child so that you can talk to them about what they are learning. 

 

 

 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.

 

Communication

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

Homework

Please bring your reading books to school every day. Homework will be given out on a Friday and should be returned to school by Wednesday.  Homework will be reading based, number based i.e. times tables, spellings and some topic work.
