Next half term our topic will be 'Fire and Ice'. 

Swimming/ PE

PE sessions will take place on Monday and Thursday afternoon. We will be developing ball skills in our outdoor sessions and working on balances and jumps in our gymnastic sessions.  Please could you ensure your child has their named PE kit in school at all times.



Children will be set homework on Education City weekly (on Fridays), their log in can be found inside their reading diaries. The homework is optional but I would encourage your child to have a go when possible. There will also be homework linked to our topic which will be available on our class page. 

Reading Diary

Reading dairies should be in school every day so they can be checked by myself or Mrs Jones, so please feel free to add any comments or concerns. It is important that children are listened to on a daily basis, comments from the listener should be recorded in your child’s diary.
