Things to remember…

This half-term, PE will be on Monday and Wednesday. Full PE kits will be needed for both days.  This includes socks as tights are not to be worn with PE shorts.

Children will bring home two reading books from school each week, please spend some time listening to them read and ask 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 ‘The Enchanted Woodland’. We will be focusing on common plants and animals found living in the woodland and learning how to identify and classify them. 

In English, we will read ‘The Gruffalo’ and we will write our own stories. In phonics we will be recapping phase 3 and moving onto phase 4 

In Maths, we will focus on counting forwards and backwards within 10 and grouping and ordering objects. 

Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions
