Autumn 1 Learning
Our text for English has been Cloud Tea Monkeys and we have written formal letters, a newspaper report and a diary.For our Topic we have been exploring Asia and tea. The children have tasted a variety of teas including “Cloud Tea”. Science has been learning about evolution and Darwin! P.E. this half term has been gymnastics.
Homework will be given out at the beginning of the half term. The homework will give current maths number facts targets to learn, as well as the terms spellings which are tested weekly. In addition, the children can choose from a range of English, Maths and Topic activities directly related to their class learning. All home work should be handed in during the last week of the half term when it will be celebrated
As well as weekly homework, your child has a reading book which they are expected to regularly practise reading at home.Reading will take place in school every day and each child will be listened to read at least once per week by an adult. A reading quiz will take place on the computers before a child can take home a new book.
We use Dojo points in school to reward positive behavior. You can see the points your child has been awarded. Please sign up and stay in touch.
If you would like to provide your child with a healthy snack, they can keep this in their tray or book bag. If you would prefer to have an extra snack provided for your child by the school, there is a cost of 20p per day. The children are responsible for looking after this money, and buying the snack at play time.
Please provide your child with a labelled water bottle. These can only be filled with water (not juice!).
We have P.E. on Tuesdays and Fridays. Children will need a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps in a bag.
Please ensure these are all clearly named.
Our topics this half term are Evolution and Living Things, and physical and human geography.
