Important Information

Reading Books

Each child will be given 2 books to take home. The first is a phonetically decodable book from our new reading scheme. This book matches the phonics phase that your child is secure with. Your child should be able to read this to you with minimal segmenting and blending. Please encourage your child to read this on a daily basis to develop fluency for reading.

The second book is from our school library. This book is for you to read to your child and is intended to develop a love for books and reading.

Books bags should be brought into school on a Friday to enable us to quarantine any books before resending them out the following Monday. This will enable the rereading of books to develop fluency and comprehension and will enable us to manage any risks associated with Covid-19. When reading with an adult in school, we will be using school books and keeping a separate reading record. 

Spelling Homework

Every child will be given a Spelling Home Learning Book. Spellings are set each week and will be tested every FRIDAY. Any spelling homework should be completed with the learning book being returned to school in the book bag. The spelling lists can also be found further down the page.

PE

PE will take place on a Tuesday and Thursday and will take place outside whenever possible. Please send your child to school in their PE kits on these days. They will wear their PE clothes all day. In line with school policy, earrings must be removed for PE lessons.

Geography - Map Makers

The class will have the opportunity to learn all about maps and the geography of their surrounding area. The class will find out why we use maps and how to read maps, as well as having the opportunity to draw their own maps and plan perspectives. This topic provides opportunities for your class to perfect their map reading skills and put them into practise in school and the surrounding local area.

Science - Materials

We will continue with our ‘Mysterious Materials’ unit.  In our ‘Mysterious Materials’ unit we will identify, classify and describe the everyday materials around us. The children will explore the properties of materials, such as wood, plastic, metal, glass and fabric, through a variety of fun activities. They will begin to think about the purpose of familiar objects and why they are made out of particular materials.
