We will be learning about countries around the world, and exploring places that are hot and cold. The children will have a chance to learn about life in other countries through English and geography. In history we will be going back in time and looking at how seaside holidays in the British Isles have changed over time.   

The children will be using timelines and identifying similarities and differences between now and then.

Learning challenge week - October 2019

The children were visited by Professor Diamond who performed a Punch and Judy show for the children. The children had lots of fun watching the show and they also had a special treat of watching a Flea Circus.

    

  The children then made their own Punch and Judy puppets in Design and Technology and used them to make their own puppet show.

               

Kingfishers

 

 

Owls

 

 

P.E Days

Owls Monday and Friday
Kingfishers Monday and Friday

Please ensure that children have the correct P.E kit in school and that earrings are removed on these days. We will send PE kits home to be washed at the end of each half term.

 

Spellings and Homework

Spellings will be sent home once a week and tested the following week. It is very important that children continue to practise spellings on a regular basis to improve their spelling in their everyday writing. To help support learning spellings, we have suggested to children they use the technique of Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check.

Reading is an essential part of your child's learning experience. We would like for the children to read at least three times a week. Your child will take home with them a reading band book and a library book.

If you do have any concerns or just want to have a chat, we are available at the end of the day for you to speak to.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your future support over the year!
