Welcome back to our KS1 children after what I hope was a super summer holiday! I am delighted to say that our new reception children have settled in beautifully.
We are really excited about our learning this term. Amongst other things, we will be exploring information texts and reading and writing stories with familiar settings in our literacy work. We will be investigating number and place value in maths.
Our Science and DT focus is all about plants, and we will be finding out about where we live and our school in our Topic work.
This term we will be swimming on a Friday afternoon at the Hydro, alongside our usual PE lessons with Sporting Influence every Monday (this term's focus being football skills), and continuing to develop our foundation sports skills with The ABC of Sport on a Thursday.
Please keep practising your SMIRFs (Space Mission Instant Recall Facts) targets and your common exception spellings, and of course enjoy reading at home too. 10 minutes of each as often as possible will have a huge impact on your child's learning.
