We will have PE on Wednesday and Thursday.
Wednesday is an outdoor session, your child may bring in leggings, tracksuit bottoms or jogging bottoms for this session if they wish. They can put their school sweatshirt ontop. This is weather dependent.
Thursday is indoor so t-shirt, shorts and pumps are needed.This session is taught by a VARA sports coach.
Please ensure ALL items of clothing that come off/on are named. They all look the same and to a 5 or 6 year old it is important that they know which is theirs.
English and topic-
Summer 1- Paws, Claws and Whiskers
This half term our topic has a science focus. We will be learning about different animals both domestic and wild. We will find out 'how the elephant gots its trunk' and 'how the leopard got its spots' by reading Aesops Fables.
Spring 2 'Memory Box'
Our work will be based around history. We will look at artefacts, listen to memories and learn about how life, people and objects change over time.
Spring 1- 'Big City, Bright Lights'
Our work will be based on London, we will explore the landmarks, transport, The Royal Family and a very special invitation. We will learn about the Great Fire of London.
The children will build upon their skills from EYFS and progress to addition and subtraction of one and two digit numbers, multiplication and Division.Children will measure using non standard and standard units, learn to tell the time, add and subtract amounts of money and find out about fractions.
All the above is taught through the White Rose Maths Scheme.
We will hope to put photos on the website to show you what we have been doing. We can only add photos of your child if you have given consent. Please check with the office that we have your preference correct. This will include class photos, Christmas Production, trips and general day to day school activities.Thank you to everyone who has completed the form already.
We look forward to getting to know you and your child over the year.
