Our topic this term is called ‘Amazing Adventures’. We hope your child enjoyed our ‘Sparkling Start’ teddy bear adventure day. We loved meeting all of the children’s teddies and going on a teddy bear hunt in the school grounds. We hope the children told you all about it. Below are some pictures from the day.

We were very impressed with the ‘All About Me!’ summer home learning that was completed and at the number of children who finished the summer reading challenge-well done!
We will be covering a range of curriculum areas this half term, including science (investigating the properties of different materials), geography (using fieldwork skills to explore the village and town we live in as well as Norwich as a nearby city), computing (importing images from the internet and e safety), PE (throwing and catching skills) and DT (colouring and decorating textiles to create capes for our teddies).

In Literacy we will be reading lots of adventure stories and learning how to write our own stories. We will also be building on our knowledge of phonics by revising the Phase 3 sounds.

In Maths we will start by focusing on number and place value and then move onto learning addition and subtraction strategies.

It is vital you read with your child as much as you can, remember- Children who read, succeed!

It is also important that the children try to complete their weekly home learning tasks. If you have any questions about these please don’t hesitate to come and ask us.

We look forward to meeting you at our ‘Meet the Team’ cafe and speaking with you during the learning reviews this half term. However please approach us with any queries or questions you have about our curriculum at any time.

Finally look out for our special class pets which will be sent home with a different child each weekend. Please look after them and return them to school the following Monday-thank you.
