Topics

Our topics are a great way of making the learning fun for our children, we use this theme for our free choice activities, it is incorporated into our maths and phonics, along with having one Topic lesson a week. If you do any additional learning at home to support our topic then please feel free to bring in photographs or anything you have made for us to share it with the class.

Homework

Children will have reading books sent home from the second week of term. Homework books will then be introduced after October half term. Then key words will start to be sent home after the Christmas break. This is because we want to make it a gradual process so the children so not feel overwhelmed.

Reading books - x2 new books every Tuesday Children should be reading every night at home for 10 minutes.
Homework books - Once every Tuesday This is one practical activity which is fun and engaging for both parents and children.
Key words - Once a week every Tuesday This will be “tricky” words for the children to learn by sight.

 

The key words will be changed once the children have secured them.

 

PE / Forest School

PE and forest school are both on a Tuesday afternoon (Spring 1 Forest School. Spring 2 P.E)

PE uniform includes a white polo shirt, red shorts and both pumps and trainers

Forest school will require wellies and waterproof coat at a minimum

 

Snacks

Children are provided with a piece of fruit and milk every break time. If you know your child does not eat all fruit, you are welcome to put a piece of fruit in their bag to ensure that they are having a snack. Every Friday, the children are welcome to bring in a “treat”, such as a bag of crisps or a little bit of chocolate.
