Our current topic is ‘Festivals and Celebrations’
We will find out about different celebrations that take place, how different people may celebrate different times and the reasons why. So far we have looked at Bonfire Night, Remembrance Day, Birthdays and Chinese New Year.
We will continue to access the outdoor area as a part of our free flow learning – please ensure your child has a warm coat and wellies, so they are prepared for going out in any weather.
PE - Our PE days are Tuesday and every other Monday, but please have your PE kit in school every day in case we have an extra chance to do PE.
Home Reading – Our fantastic volunteer Mrs Scrivens will change your child’s home reading book on a TUESDAY. Please read at home with your child as often as possible and make a note in their reading record. Please send your book bag to school every day.
Home Learning – Home-learning is always linked to the learning we have done that week. It is given out every Wednesday in homework books. It must be returned by the following Monday so that it can be marked and sent back to you.
Uniform – Please make sure your child’s uniform, PE kit and coat is clearly labelled. Jewellery is not allowed in school except for simple stud earrings
