This half-term, PE will be on Monday and Thursday. PE kits should be worn to school on these days. 

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 ‘Paw, Claws and Whiskers’. 

In English, we will read ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ and we will write our own stories by creating our own beginning, middle and ending! We will also invite the tiger to our very own tea party. We will write our own instructions of how to make a sandwich and then make them for the tiger. 

In phonics we will be looking at phase 5 which incorporates all sounds learnt up to now. 

In Maths, we will focus on place value within 50, length and height and weight and volume. 

Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions
