Our school day will begin at 8:45am, where I will great you and your child at the hexagon on the yard. Our school day will finish at 3:00pm and you can collect your child from the same place. Please ensure that you do not take your child until they have informed me that an adult has arrived for them. This is for the safety of the children, as well as enabling me to get to know you all better.
Play time: 10:30am
Dinner time: 12:00pm
Class 2’s PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday.
Please could you ensure that your child has their PE kits in school during these days. This includes, a red top, shorts/leggings/joggers, pumps or trainers. We would love all children to take part in PE each week, so please ensure that your child is not wearing earrings/jewellery.
Reading diaries will be sent home this week. We have added a reminder of your child's book band colour and reference to individual reading targets. Please bring back reading diaries every Monday morning so that we have time to check them and send them back out. If your child reads 3 times per week they will receive a stamp. Once they have collected 6 stamps they will win a prize from Mrs Peart!
Our Autumn Term topic is 'Sun, Sea and Sand.’ We have lots of exciting learning opportunities for the children during this topic. Our visit to Cleethorpes will provide the children with valuable experiences to bring back into the classroom, as well as supporting cross-curricular learning. These include knowledge around, seaside through the ages, seascapes, sea shanties, map of the UK, human and physical features.
During Literacy, we will be reading a text called ‘The Storm Whale.’ We will be focusing on developing writing skills in poetry, letter writing, narrative and instructions. In Maths we will be focusing on place value, addition and subtraction. During Science we will be exploring living things and their habitats, as well as investigating materials and their properties.
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact myself or Mrs Smith on the class email, Thanks!
