Autumn Term 2021

Welcome back to the new academic year!

We have a busy term ahead and lots to look forward to!

We will be celebrating harvest festival and are looking forward to our class assembly later this term.

There are a lot of new routines that your child will be getting used to over the next few weeks. Please help them by ensuring that they have the correct equipment on the right day and ensure all items of uniform are labelled.

It is really important that you read with your child every day and that this is recorded in their purple reading record books – this helps to track their progress effectively.

To view our class assembly please click here.

Starting after half term; each Thursday the children will be bringing home spellings to learn, please encourage the children to complete the practice sheet and return it to school the following Thursday.

In addition, each week the children have a word of the week to learn to read and spell. Please help your child with this i.e. practicing writing the word, spotting the word in their reading book and in other books you may read together.

Our history topic this term will be Nurturing Nurses. We will be learning all about the life and work of three famous nurses – Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and Edith Cavell.

As part of our learning we are hoping to have a real nurse talk to the children about their job and how they look after their patients.

In science we will be learning about different materials and also conducting some of our own experiments. We may need your help to collect resources for these experiments so please keep an eye on Class Dojo for messages about this.

Please speak to us at the classroom door or send us a message on Class Dojo if you have any questions.

Thank you for your support

Mrs Martin and Mrs Wilson
