PE

PE is on Wednesday. 

Your child needs a full PE kit including:

  • Blue Dallam PE Top
  • Black Shorts
  • Pumps for indoors
  • Trainers for outdoors

You may also wish to send in a jumper and pair of jogging bottoms as we will still be outside as the weather turns colder.

Home - School Link Books

Home - School link books are checked by a member of Willow Class Staff daily. If you have a message to send into school, your child's link book is the best place to do so.

Please also make sure that your child has their link book with them in each day, should we need to write a note home. 

Snack

As we are  a Healthy School, your child's snack should consist of food such as toast, breadsticks, fruit, yoghurt or vegetables. Drinks should be either fresh fruit juice, milk or water. Cereal bars are not to be sent in for snack.

Toast and milk are availble to buy from school at a cost of £2.15 per week. Toast is available at a cost of £1.25 per week. 

Snack money should be paid via the Parent Pay website. If you would like help to do this, please pop into the school office for some advice.

Look what we've been doing...

As part of our project work, we have been role playing as nurses.

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 for the    Autumn term is:

Why do we remember some people from the past more than others?

This project will have a history focus.

We will be learning about and comparing hospitals in the past and in the present. We are asking the children to think about why we remember Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale. We will be helping the children to research and find out facts about these significant people and the events surrounding their lives.

Our project will work towards a comparison of the lives of both of these women in history and how they are remembered.  

You will have received a copy of our Autumn Term Project letter in your child's book bag. You can also download a copy below.

Our Science Topic is: 

Humans and other animals

Our Science work this term involves life cycles, healthy Living and hygiene.

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. You can encourage your child to look at the pictures and try to think about what is happening. 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. Reading books will be changed every Tuesday.

Guided Reading

We are working on comprehension skills as part of our guided reading groups. 

Some of the children have been using Reading Plus to help them with their reading and comprehension. They should also practice this at home.
