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.


You can read on bug club too. Your child's login details can be found at the front of their home learning book.




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.


Busy Books

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.



               Autumn 2          

We will begin by looking at seasonal changes and firework themed poetry before learning about pirates.     


In English, we will learn lots of pirate topic words and use them in sentences, read a range of pirate themed stories, write character descriptions and describe a desert island. 


In Maths, we will continue to practise our counting forwards and backwards. We will develop understanding of larger numbers by looking at the tens and ones.
