Our topic for this term is “Going Places”. The focus of our learning this half term is Geography, but it will also include a variety of engaging curriculum areas. If your child does anything at home that supports their topic, please send it in, as it’s always lovely to celebrate children’s enthusiasm for learning! Next half term, our focus will move to History where we will look at travel in the past and how transport has changed lives.
In Science the children will be learning about "Animals including humans" where they will learn about our 5 senses and how animals are grouped.

books will be checked in school every day. . record their reading in their reading journal. Books will be changed on a Friday to allow for increased reading of the same text to develop phonics knowledge, confidence and fluency. In addition to their reading book each child will be able to choose a bedtime story book to share at home. This is something to be enjoyed by the whole family. Please return to school on a Friday.
More to follow on this. We will begin with learning the Red Words linking to our phonics lessons.
