Here are some general pointers to help you and your child:

  • Please listen to your child read for around 5 minutes every night and ask questions afterwards.
  • Help them to practise for their weekly Maths Passport test and relevant times tables.
  • Ensure your child brings their book bag containing their reading and home-link books to school every day.
  • PE kits are to be kept in school each week and taken home half-termly for washing.

Autumn term project

Our question for Autumn will be 'What makes a great story?' We will focus on the Ancient Greeks and their mythology. The term will begin with a trip to Clonter theatre in Congleton (with Sycamore class) to learn about stage design and lighting in preparation for us making our own animation based upon one of the Greek myths.

We would like to encourage you to explore this project at home with your child. Some example activities that you could do at home to support your child’s learning are:

  • Learning about the lives of the Ancient Greeks
  • Reading some Ancient Greek myths /watching cartoon versions on YouTube
  • Watching clips on how animations are made (also on YouTube) and looking at different types (e.g. 2D / 3D / Stop motion)
