This year across the school we will be focusing on reading and how important it is for all children to develop a love of reading for themselves. Reading to your child and hearing them read is very important at this early age and we would encourage you to try to read with your children as much as possible.
Our topic this half term is 'Bob the Builder' and we are looking at construction.
Week beginning 28th October
We hope you have all had a great half term and are now looking forward to the next 8 weeks of the Autumn term!
This week in English we will be working on capital letters and punctuation, making sure all our lower and upper case letters are formed correctly. In maths we will be consolidating our work on addition and number bonds before moving on to subtraction.
In Science we will be finishing our investigation on materials.
We try to go outside as much as possible including for PE. Please make sure your child now has suitable outdoor coats and shoes and also jogging bottoms/tracksuit and trainers which all need to be named
Please could we ask that you keep your children off the grass before coming into school as we have a big problem with mud being brought into the classrooms.
Thank you for your support.
