This term our topic is:
Why Do Ladybirds Have Spots?

This half term our topic is titled ‘Why do ladybirds have spots?' We will be learning about minibeasts like ladybirds and bees and how important they are to look after. We will explore questions about how different minibeasts such as caterpillars grow and change and will use the school grounds to hunt in our environment.

Reading

Your child will be sent home with a colour banded book to match their ability and a library book. 

Reading books will be changed on a weekly basis. Please bring you child’s reading book and diary every day as we are always looking for extra opportunities to listen to them read.

We ask that you try to share a book with your child at least three times a week. It really does make a difference. If your child finds some of the words difficult, remind them to use their phonics for support. Alongside reading the text, ask your child questions about the book and what they think might happen next in the story. Please write a comment each time you listen to your child read or share a storybook together. Children who read at least 3 times a week will be entered into a raffle to win a book voucher at the end of each half term. 

Our library book day will be Thursday. Your child will only need to bring their library book back on this day if they want to change it. 

Tricky Words

Children will be sent home with a set of tricky words for them to practise reading. Tricky words are common words that cannot be sounded out using regular phonics.  The tricky words will be linked to the phonics phase your child is learning. Please ensure that tricky word bookmarks are in your child’s book bag every day.

 

PE

This half term the children will be doing PE on Fridays. Please ensure they come to school in their PE kit on this day. Kit should include plimsolls/ trainers, shorts/ joggers, a tee-shirt and a hoodie/ track suit top. All earrings must be removed for PE, school staff are unable to take them out so please can you make sure that your child is not wearing earrings to school. If your child has newly pierced ears, please see the school office for a form to sign.

Maths

Please continue to use the maths packs sent home and keep an eye out on Dojo for home learning maths ideas.  

Wow Moments

We would love to hear about any recent achievements, news, or exciting activities that you and your child have been up to at home. Please write any exciting things you would like to share with us on a wow slip. All completed slips are to be given to a member of staff as we can then share these with the class and display them.

Reminders

Children have the opportunity to learn outside every day and need appropriate clothing for the weather. 

Please can you ensure that all your child's belongings are clearly labelled.

Please see the newsletter at the bottom of the page for more information about our class.
