Our learning will focus on Castles, Kings and Queens, we will be learning all about how castles are built and their features. We will also be looking at who lived in Castles. We will compare castles in the past to where our current Queen lives. Our History, Geography, DT, Music, PE, Computing, Art will link to our learning journey to create a memorable and exciting learning journey.
This term we also have some special visitors - 5 little caterpillars. We are very excited to observe what happens to the caterpillars as they turn into beautiful butterflies.
Please read with your child as often as possible (every day if you can). Research shows that children who read at home make better progress with their reading generally. They will change their books once a week and will bring home 3 books for you to share with your child. Please encourage your child to bring their reading bag to school every day.
Some tips for reading at home:
Discuss the story and ask your child lots of questions to check they have understood what they have read. Act out the story or make up different endings. Discuss the characters and their feelings at different times in the story. Talk about the story and relate it to your child’s experiences if possible. There are also some fantastic phonics videos below with some excellent tips.
This term we have PE sessions on Tuesday and Friday afternoons but please ensure that PE kits are in school at all times. We will be following the Real PE scheme and also incorporating some Medieval dance into PE.
Every Friday your child will be given spellings to learn and practice to then be tested for the following Friday. Your child also has a 'Phonics workout' book where are they are to complete the weekly set pages.
Your child will also have a log in to Doodle Maths, where they can complete a 'daily five.'
Please don't hesitate to contact us if you need any further information.
Email is often the most efficient method:
