This term our Learning Journey has a geography/science focus, but English, Maths, History, Art, DT, Dance and Music will all link together to create an exciting, memorable learning experience.
Our learning will focus on animals that live in the jungle and the jungle habitat. Purple class will explore what the animals eat and learn how to classify animals in Science. They will also learn about the map of the world and where different types of animals live and why this might be.
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 2/3 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.
This term we have PE sessions on Tuesday and Friday afternoons but please ensure that PE kits are in school at all times.
Every Friday your child will be given spellings to learn and practice to then be tested for the following Friday (see below for the weekly spellings). Your child will also have a log in to Doodle Maths, where they can complete a 'daily five' and work will be set for children to complete to support the learning in lessons.
Please don't hesitate to contact us if you need any further information.
Email is often the most efficient method:
