Reading books
Our class will change their reading book on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. Books will only be changed if the reading record has been signed. Your comment could be about the key words they have been learning and/or the book they have been reading.

Library books will be changed on a Monday or Tuesday as long as the book to be returned is in your child’s book bag.

Homework
Our class is given homework on a Friday and this needs to be handed in on a Monday. Please keep the homework in the blue folders. Please write a comment in the box on the back of the homework letter to let us know how your child found the homework.

If you want to let us know about anything you think is special or important at home, please complete a ‘Discovered at Home’ sheet, so we can add them to your child’s learning journey.

P.E.
Our class has P.E. on a Thursday Morning with the Sports Coach and on a Friday afternoon with Mrs Mayers.

Autumn Term
This half term our topics are ‘All about me’ and ‘Traditional Tales.’  We will be thinking about what we look like and things we like. We will be talking about our feelings and also looking at who is in our family and how our families are similar and different.

In our ‘Traditional Tales’ topic, we will be looking at a different Traditional Tale each week and completing activities linked to these. We will be learning about our senses, using size language, acting out stories and thinking about how we can change them.

We will be completing Maths and writing activities that help us achieve our targets and practising our cursive writing. We will be learning the names of the Oxford Reading Tree characters and when ready to, starting to read books with or without words.

We will also be learning how to use different apps on our ipads and programs on the computers and exploring colour and texture in through art activities.
