Welcome back after a lovely Summer! The children have all settled in really well and have already turned our our classroom into the Land of Dinosaurs with a cave, volcano, trees and footprints. Four large dinosaurs have appeared so enter Class 2 if you dare!


This half term our topic will focus on Dinosaurs, fossils and the work of Mary Anning. The children will be designing their own dinosaurs and creating Deadly 60 style video reports - more information about our film show to follow!


In maths we will be exploring place value using lots of practical resources and looking for patterns.


Homework - this year, we are asking parents to really focus on reading with their children as this is such an important skill. We will also be sending home maths games. There will not be a formal homework book this year. If children attend Homework Club, we will read and play maths games together.


PE days are Monday and Friday however, the timetable does sometimes change so we ask that PE kits are in school every day. REMEMBER - long hair must be tied back and earrings removed for PE. It is usually easier with the younger children if they DO NOT wear earrings to school on PE days. Trainers are needed everyday for the field and the Golden Mile.

PE - Please ensure that your child has their PE kit with them on every day.


Book bags should be brought into school everyday. Please remember to check their bag for letters, homework and tricky words.


Tricky Words/Spellings are given out to the children as they progress and tested during the following week. Please keep an eye out in book bags for the new words.



Reading - Please spend 15 minutes a day reading and fill in your child’s reading record to show how they are getting on.
