Our first topic in the Autumn term is On Our Doorstep. We will be focusing on the area around our school and where we live. Our learning includes map work, research into famous places nearby and habitats in our local area.

PE and Forest School

Our PE day is Thursday. Please make sure your child has appropriate clothing for outdoor activities. During the Autumn term we will be having forest school every Thursday morning. Your child will need warm and waterproof clothing as we go out in all weathers! Don't forget the Welly boots. 



During the first half of the Autumn term, we will be focusing on reading at home. Spellings will be sent later in the year. Please read with your child everyday and make a note in their reading record. This is checked on a regular basis during the week. 


Reading books

Reading books are changed every Monday. If your child finishes their books before this, please continue to read any form of text from home. This can be books from home or the local library even instruction booklets or annuals you have around the house. We encourage the children to read for pleasure so please let us know if you need an extra supply of reading material.
