This term our theme is ‘I Spy With My Little Eye’. Throughout the term we are going to be reading lots of texts about farms and minibeasts. We will be reading; What the Ladybird Heard, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Farmer Duck, The Enormous Turnip and many others. We are very much looking forward to exploring our local environments and getting ready for our very first trip to the woods.


Books will be changed on a Tuesday and Friday. : )

Outdoor Learning:

Apple Class will have outdoor learning on a Thursday afternoon with Mrs Bacon. We will let you know by either dojo or a text message if your child needs to bring any extra clothes for these sessions. Please ensure your child always has wellies in school for these sessions and a warm coat as sometimes we do get a little bit muddy.


Our PE session is on a Tuesday morning. This term we are doing dance and so we will be staying inside. We will let you know when we need any outside PE kit.


Please can you continue to read with your child as much as possible at home. We would like you to try and read with your child 5 times a week; this can include all types of reading experiences not just from their school reading book. Please keep learning the keywords that are inside the back of the reading records; these will be tested weekly.

Every child now has a homework book with Maths, Phonics and Topic activities to have a go at over the term. We hope you enjoy having a go at some of these. We will let you know when we are going to collect these in just before the end of the term.
