Reading Champions


You can ask your child some questions about their book;

  • Where does the story take place?
  • Who are the characters?
  • Which part of the story do you like best?
  • What is happening in the pictures?
  • What happens first in the story?
  • What happens in the middle of the story?
  • What happens at the end of the story?​

You can write in the record book to let us know how you are getting on;

  • Did your child like the book?
  • What was their favourite part?
  • Who was their favourite character? 


Mad About Maths


Every Friday, we send home your child's Maths Passport along with activities for you to support them with at home. This will help them to develop important skills we are working on in class and nurture their love of the subject. 

We will also be sending home maths homework packs, which have a variety of games and activities for you to enjoy together at home. When your child has completed ten of these activities, they will recieve a Mad About Maths award. 

Our Project - Autumn Term

This term we are thinking all about 'what makes me amazing?' We have been exploring all the things that make us who we are, including what we look like, the things we enjoy, the people who are special to us and all the other things that make us amazing. The children have settled back into class very well after the Summer holidays and we are really enjoying our shiny new classroom! 


We have begun our Talk for Writing book, 'The Three Little Pigs'. The children are working hard to retell the story, using actions, words and story maps. We have lots of exciting activities planned around this book, such as planning and building our own houses for the pigs, being left a trail of clues by the Big Bad Wolf and experimenting to see which materials will be blown away by him.
