Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome back we hope that you had a wonderful break. Here is some information you may find useful and an overview of the learning that will be taking place this half term.

PE is on Thursday and Friday. Both of our session will be outside this half term (weather permitting).
Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school (white t-shirt, dark shorts and trainers). It is also really helpful if these items are labelled with your child’s name! Please can children leave their kits in school at all times, as sometimes the timetable can change. Trainers will be needed this half term!

Reading Books
Please try to listen to your child read every day and sign or tick their reading record book, showing that it had been read.
Our class library day is Monday when children may select a book at lunchtime to take home from the library.

This half term our topic is ‘Animal Mayhem’.

Science – We will be looking at different animals. We will look at their characteristics and their body parts. We will also be focusing on some animals and writing an information text about it.

DT – We will be making animal fridge magnets.

Art – We will be using clay to make animals.

PE – Thursday – Rounders

Homework is set throughout the school half termly. They will have a few weeks to complete the project and can complete it in any way they like. Ways of presenting their work is:
