We really enjoyed reading Here We Are and did lots of work to support it. 

Our second book, The Bog Baby, has been really enjoyable and thought provoking for Ash Class. We have debated whether we would keep a Bog Baby if we found on and why. We have also written instructions about how to care for one. The children have really enjoyed reading this book.

We will be starting our next book, Pattan's Pumpkin, after half term during this book we will be:

letter writing, writing in role, news reporting, thought bubbles, story mapping and writing stories.



We are going to start the term with revision of phases 3 and 4. This will help the children to recall previous learning and consolidate this knowledge.



This term we will be focussing on number bonds to 10 and addition within 10. We will be doing this by using objects to help up and investigate our learning with the resources in the classroom.



Parts of animals- In this topic we will be looking at animals and humans. By the end of the topics we will be able to identify different parts of the body and discuss the senses, being able to say which part of the body is associated with each sense. We will also be able to describe animals and their features.

Our next topic is Changing Seasons. In this unit children will learn that there are four seasons, the names for these seasons and that there are differences between them. They will identify and design weather symbols for the different types of weather they are likely to experience across the seasons.

Working scientifically, children will make observations and measurements over time throughout the seasons including day length, temperature, rain/snow fall, wind strength, cloud conditions and the accompanying changes to plants and animals in their local environment. They will describe and record their findings and compare them across the seasons.



As mentioned above and at the transition meeting we are not sharing the name of the topic right now. There will be clues in the classroom for the children to predict the topic and think about what they would like to know. Once we have shared the topic we will share it on here.

We have really enjoyed learning about Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole in our topic lessons. We have learnt what changes were made in hospitals by Florence Nightingale and why they were needed. 

Home Learning Challenges have been sent home linked to our current topic and are due in on Monday 30th November. Feel free to upload any images to Seesaw with a little message about what they are rather than worrying about printing them out to be stuck in your child’s book.

We will be starting our new topic after half term. Further details will be posted once we start.



This half term the children will be looking at the Creation in which the children will find out about how God made our beautiful world and our responsibility to look after it. They will also look at Harvest and find out why we celebrate the harvest and how and why we should help those who do not have a good harvest.



This term P.E. will be on a Thursday with our sports coaches. Please send your child in on a Thursday wearing a PE kit that is weather appropriate.

Long hair must be tied back and earrings need to be removed/covered with tape.


Home Reading

We are going to send reading books home again from Friday. We have decided that we are able to do this safely by sending one book home each week and then storing returned books for at least 72 hours before they are used again. We will not be sending a reading record home, if you have any comments you would like to make please let me know via Seesaw.

Miss Bell would like to thank you for all your kind wishes and gifts after the birth of her beautiful daughter Ivy. They are all doing well and are absolutely besotted.
