Reading books
Our class will change their reading book usually on a Monday. All the children will have a reading session with Mrs Mayers. This will be a book different to the books the children bring home. Reading 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.

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.

Our class has P.E. on a Thursday Morning with the Sports Coach.

Autumn Term
This half term our topics are ‘Space, Light and Dark’ and ‘Christmas.’  We will be learning about the planets and what we can see in space. In our Literacy we will be writing ‘It is a …’ and ‘I see…’ sentences. We will be exploring light sources, how we can light a bulb, what animals come out at night and what we can do during the day and at night. Our Literacy focus for this part of our topic will be ‘Night Monkey, Day Monkey’ and the children will be making their own books, writing ‘I am,’ ‘I like’ and ‘I can’ sentences. We will be looking at other stories linked to light, dark and space at the end of the day.

In our Maths we will be focusing on addition and subtraction and numbers within 10. We will also be looking at 2D and 3D shapes, time, positional language, pattern and money.

We will be practising for our Nativity and exploring Christmas through craft and role play.

This half term we will also be looking at different things people celebrate including Bonfire Night, Diwali, Remembrance Day, Children in Need, Hannukah and Advent.

The children will have challenges to complete during their independent learning and we will be helping the children with their targets.

The children need to have 100 Dojo Merits to join in the Treat Day at the end of the term.
