Reading Books

Each child will be given 2 books to take home. The first is a phonetically decodable book from our 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.

Please make sure reading book bags are in school every day. We will change books on a rota basis every week.


P.E. will take place on a Tuesday and Thursday. Please send your child to school in their P.E. kits on these days. They will wear their P.E. kits all day. 


History - Toys

We will explore the history of toys. We will think about and discuss our favourite toys and then go on to look at what toys were like in the past and how they are different to toys today.



Science - Materials

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.
