Our first Topic for terms 1 and 2 is ‘The Amazing Adventure Of…’. During this topic we will be finding out about different explorers and using maps and atlases to find out more about the world.

Useful information:

  • PE will be on a Wednesday and a Friday. Please can you ensure they have a PE kit in school for both inside and outside PE. Can all clothing please be named.
  • Please can you ensure you read with your child 5 times a week at home to support with their progress and sign this in their reading record. We will change books once they have been read.
  • I have an open door policy so if you ever feel you need to talk to me please feel as though you can. We also have Class Dojo if there are any other messages or you are not able to come into school to talk in person.
  • Spellings – these will be sent home at the beginning of each term. Please practise these with your children. We will test them every Friday.
  • There will soon be a ‘show and tell rota’ coming home, please look to see when your child can bring in their show and tell. Please ensure these are topic/learning related.
