Things to Note:

  • PE - Our PE days are Mondays and Thursdays. PE may be inside or outside this term so please ensure children arrive at school dressed in their PE kit on PE days. 
  • Swimming - Our swimming day is Monday. Please ensure your child comes to school with their swimming kit. They will need a swimming costume/swimming trunks, a towel and a swimming hat. 
  • Homework - You will have a grid of activities based on our topic sent home via email at the beginning of the half term. Two topic based tasks from the grid should be completed at some point during each half term, but you can always do more if you want to! 
  • Reading - Please continue to read with your child on a weekly basis and ensure children have their reading books and reading records in every day. Please use the reading comprehension bookmark sent home to ask your child questions about what they are reading. Children are encourage to read at home and take part in our home reading challenge.
  • Times Tables - Times tables test will take place on a Friday, please ensure you continue to practice these. Although we support this through our learning in school as well as weekly tests, home practise is vital! 
  • Breaktime Snacks - Children can bring a healthy snack in from home to eat during morning playtime (fruit/vegetables are preferable).

Our topic this term is The Vikings and Anglo Saxons!
