When you have practised, please sign inside their Mad about Maths book. After every 10 practises your child will recieve a certificate and their name will be on the newsletter.

Learning

Our learning question this term is:

How can we let people know about the past?

This topic will have a history focus.

The children will learn about The Great Fire of London, compare firefighters in the past to modern day firefighters and learn about Samuel Pepys and why he is still famous today.

We will be working hard in class to create a non-fiction book to help share our findings with others. 

 

Our Science Topic is:

Animals including humans

We will be:

  • sorting and grouping animals
  • discovering what happens to animals over time
  • researching the names of different animal's young
  • learning about the importance of exercise, healthy diets and cleanliness. 

Reading

Reading books are checked daily. Please try to read with your child for 10 minutes every night and sign their Reading Champions record.

A number of our children struggle with comprehension. Try to ask a few questions about the story they have read to support them with this.

After every 10 reads your child will earn a 'Reading Champions' certificate and have their name on the newsletter.
