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.

Book 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.


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

History - The Great Fire of London

1666 was one of the most devastating years in London’s history. We will be going back to the era of the Stuarts as we find out about the Great Fire of London and the effect it had on the people of the time. We will find out when, where, how and why the Great Fire happened and explore how we know about it through the diary of Samuel Pepys and other sources.

Science - Living in Habitats

Exploring first the difference between living and non-living things, the class will then find out about habitats in familiar local areas, such as woodlands or ponds, before looking further afield from sea sides to the Sahara. They will also explore micro-habitats.
