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 Monday for changing.


P.E. will take place on a Wednesday 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. 


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 practice in school and the surrounding local area. 

Science - Materials

We will continue with our ‘Mysterious Materials’ unit. 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.
