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 usually on a Monday 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.

Spring Term 2

This half term our topic is ‘What do we eat?’ In this topic we will be learning about where food comes from, thinking about if it grows or comes from an animal and also about foods from different cultures and countries. We will be learning about healthy foods and what we need to eat to stay healthy. Each week during this topic we will be cooking, looking at different ways we can cook foods, different tools we can use and talking lots about how foods change as they are cooked. We will be looking at the books ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ and the story of ‘The Little Red Hen.’ The children will be changing these stories, writing facts about tigers and instructions for how to make bread.


In our Maths work we are going to be looking at doubling and using this doubling to solve problems. We will carry on looking at the numbers 1-20 in different ways and will be estimating and counting accurately. We are going to be working on our size and weight language, linking this to food, learning about 3D shapes and different ways to make patterns.


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