Autumn Term 2021.

I am so pleased to welcome you all to your new class. I'm so excited to get to know you all and find out what you have been doing in the holidays.

This term our topic is ‘Cracking Ideas’. We will start our topic by talking about journeys that we have been on recently or in our lifetime. We will mark the destinations on a world map and talk about how we travelled to them. We will then move to looking at travel throughout history and find out all about the Wright brothers. We will look at primary and secondary sources to find out more information. In the second half of the term, we will look at travel in Space and find out about special astronauts.


In English, we use a writing cycle to help us become super writers. We start with a cold write and, after our sequence of learning, a hot write! The genres we are covering this term are linked to our theme. We will be studying a recount, a non-chronological report about The Wright Brothers, a narrative based in space and a letter.

In Maths, we will be focusing on place vale to 10, addition and subtraction within 10, shape and place value to 20.


All children have a daily phonics session. This helps children to read and spell words. You child will bring a reading book and diary home with them each night. Please help them by reading with them each night. More information on helping your child learn to read can be found here here


As a school, we use VIPERS skills to help us understand what we are reading. More information can be found in their home school link book or here


P.E is on a Tuesday and Friday. Children will need a white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps. If you child wears tights, please put a pair of socks in their bag.

If you child has pierced ears and can not remove the studs then please send your child with surgical tape or plasters so that the studs can be covered during PE.
