WOW moments this half term include enjoying a feast to celebrate Eid, learning about London and the royal family, building a space rocket, creating a musical instrument to play like David Bowie and collecting litter to save our planet!

As the weather gets warmer, the children will be exploring modes of transport to leave England, meeting farm animals, singing and dancing at a festival, eating an ice cream with friends, taking part in a team race, feeling sand between their toes, paddling in a pool and watching a magic show!

PE will take place every Thursday throughout the year. Please make sure your child has their full P.E kit in school at all times. We will be supporting and encouraging the children to dress themselves for P.E, to allow them to gain independence in this area.

Homework will be focusing on:
Your child will bring home the sounds that have been introduced to them during daily phonics sessions and a book matched to their current phonics level. They will keep this book until they have read three times with an adult either at home or at school. Please read with your child every night to improve their reading confidence and fluency. Please record this in your child’s reading planner when you have read with them just so we know that they have read.

Children will also choose a library book to bring home each Friday. This book is to share with a family member to read for pleasure.
