Things to note:

  • The children have the opportunity to read in school every day so please make sure their books and reading diaries are in school every day. If your child needs their book changing please encourage them to put their books in the 'to be changed box' first thing in the morning.  
  • Water bottles should be brought to school daily. Please make sure these are named.

Week beginning 25th September 2023

In English we read a poem called Snail by John Drinkwater. We enjoyed performing the poem and we found all the rhyming words. We wrote our own sets of rhyming words and matched pictures and words that rhyme. We enjoyed finding out facts about snails and we wrote a sentence about one of the facts we learned.
