Outdoor PE is on a Monday afternoon. Children will need a plain white t-shirt, plain black or grey tracksuit bottoms, a plain black or grey tracksuit top/sweatshirt, and trainers. Indoor PE is on a Friday Morning. Children will need a plain white t-shirt and plain black shorts. Please leave their P.E. kit in school when possible because P.E. times may sometimes change. Please write your child's name in all their kit!



Please make sure you read your child's school reading book with them for at least 10 minutes per day. Reading is a 'building block' on which much of their other learning rests, and regular reading at home makes a huge difference in the classroom. If you would like any support or advice on helping your child with their reading, please pop in after school to see their teacher.


Children will receive spellings to learn at home every Friday which they will use in their English work the following week. Spelling sheets do not need to be returned to school. Children will also be set a maths activity linked to their learning that week. These are normally practical tasks that you can complete with your child at home and do not need to be returned to school. 



This term our topic is 'Africa'. Within this topic we will be having lots of fun learning about Africa and its wonderful wildlife. The children will be learning about different types of African animals, exploring African art techniques and improving their geography skills through using maps and finding out about the human and physical geography of Africa.
