History and Geography
We will learn about the countries, capital cities and seas of the United Kingdom. We will find out about what caused the Great Fire of London and why it spread so quickly, and learn about famous landmarks in London.
Outdoor Learning – Monday - In school, we have waterproof trousers and jackets for every child. All that you need to provide is a pair of wellington boots for your child to wear. It is not necessary to bring in other clothes to change in to. Every child will wear waterproof trousers and their wellies each time we go outside, and they will wear a waterproof jacket if it is raining or windy.
PE - Tuesday - Children should come to school wearing PE shorts, t-shirt and tracksuit, or wearing usual school uniform and bring their PE kit to change in to. If your child wears earrings, they must either take the earrings out or put plasters/surgical tape over the earrings.
Reading percentages are calculated on a Thursday. Reading records are checked on Wednesdays. Children need to read at least three times a week.
FAME (Whole class violin lessons) will take place on Thursday led by Mrs Howles.
Mrs Banham will teach the class on Friday afternoon.
Homework will be given on Friday and should be returned the following Wednesday.
Library - Friday (Children can borrow a book from our school library. They must return their chosen book in order to borrow another one.)
