Homework and PE days


This term, we have PE on a Monday and Thursday. Please can you ensure children have an indoor and outdoor PE kit.


We will be following the Read Write Inc programme, which incorporates reading, spelling and letter formation together with identifying sounds (phonemes) and how to represent these with letters (graphemes).
As part of the primary Framework each of the units covered incorporates the 12 strands of learning. These are speaking, listening and responding, group discussion and interaction, drama, word recognition (reading and spelling), word structure, understanding and interpreting texts, engaging and responding to texts, creating and shaping texts, text structure and punctuation and presentation.
This term your children will develop their mathematical skills including; number and place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, measures, shapes, position and direction and statistics. Children will learn both individually and in groups through practical, mental and written activities. Children will be expected to learn and become fluent in their 2, 5 and 10 times tables. The children will apply their new skills through problem solving scenarios and will learn to use mathematical vocabulary to explain their work.

This term science unit is Animals including Humans – Children will develop their scientific skills of enquiry through practical investigations. We will make predictions, carry out tests and evaluate our findings. We will learn that animals, including humans, have offspring which grow into adults and find out about and describe the basic needs of animals, including humans, for survival (water, food and air). We will also investigate the importance for humans of exercise, eating the right amounts of different types of food, and hygiene.
