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 - Spring Term

This term our project question is 'What Does the Weather Feel Like Near to me and Far Away?'. We will be learning about how to keep ourselves safe in different types of weather conditions. There will be a geography focus, which will mean we will explore what the weather is like both locally around the world. We will be finding out about how people live in climates that are different to our own. We will be using our senses to explore the weather and weather related themes through lots of sensory play! 


Take a look at some of the books we will be using to support our project.


We will be using Talk 4 Writing strategies that will help the children to become familiar and secure with the books we read together in class. We will retell the stories using sensory stimuli, create story maps, innovate the stories and even retell the stories through Write Dance. We have lots of fun with Talk 4 Writing!


We will also be using a variety of factual books so support this project.
