Reading books will be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It would be great if you could read a minimum of 4 times a week with your child. Please sign their Home School book so we know the book has been read and needs changing.
Reading is vital to support your child make good progress, to help them learn to love reading and to support their writing skills.
This term, class ET have PE on Tuesday and class MR have PE on Friday.
Children must come to school wearing their PE kit on their PE day. They will remain in these clothes all day. Please ensure children wear warm clothes as PE activities will take place outside, as much as possible. Children will not be able to borrow PE kit from school.
Your child now has a busy book to use at home. These can be used to practise their writing. We have included a list of topic related words and we will update these for each topic.
Your child can use the book however they wish and we will be sharing and celebrating their work in class. Some ideas include, using the topic words in sentences and practising high frequency words, but please let your child be as creative as they like.
This half term, our topic is 'Seaside'. Our main focus is to learn about holidays now and in the past. We will talk about different holiday locations and how entertainment has changed.
In English, we will continue to develop our sentence work. We will be looking at using adjectives and conjunctions to make them longer and more interesting.
In Maths, we will learn to tell the time (o'clock and half past) and measure the height, length, weight and capacity of objects, using non-standard (cube, beads etc) and standard units (cm, m, g, ml, l). We will also continue to work on our mental strategies and fact families.
