This term we will be focusing on the Power of reading. The books in the Power of reading have been chosen because they are powerful, well written books that will engage children. They will stir ideas and feelings which will then inspire writing, speaking and listening.
The texts we will be using in our Literacy work will link very closely with our topic.
This term we are going to be covering various aspects of mathematics in a fun way. This will be coupled with counting, recognising and knowing the value of coins and notes, fractions, comparing, describing and solving practical problems. Using mathematical language : equal to, more than, less than, most and least, and many other aspects of place value, addition and subtraction. Our lessons in numeracy are always interactive using many different and varied resources to engage each and every child.
Just a few minutes reading with your child each day makes a huge difference. Please ensure your child has their reading book in school every day
Please ensure that your child has their p.e. kit in school at all times.

Homework & Spellings
To support work in school the children can choose one activity to do every fortnight from their homework grid, so three activities need to be completed each half term. A copy of the homework grid has been uploaded on to this website page. Homework can now also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Children will be given new spellings each Friday and will be tested on these spellings the following Friday. Spelling results will be written in homework book for your reference.
Children will also need to practise their common exception words which have been put into the front of homework books. If you have any problems do not hesitate to ask for help.
