Curriculum

Marvellous Me Topic

Our topic this half term is Marvellous Me.

We will be reading stories about how unique we all are and we will be looking closely at ourselves using mirrors to look at our features. We will use different equipment to measure and compare how tall we are and we will be discussing our likes and dislikes.

As usual there will be lots of activities both indoor and out that will allow us to explore our new topic in the ways we find most exciting.

Key Information

Class Dojo

Ask your child about their class dojos. These are points awarded for good behaviour. Sign up for our parent app with a code from your class teacher, so that you can track your child’s dojo online.

 

PE Days

We will be doing PE on Friday mornings.

Your child will need navy shorts, a white t-shirt and pumps or trainers. No jewellery, including earrings, is permitted for PE. Children need to remove these or cover them with tape. We also require that long hair is tied up for these lessons.

You are more than welcome to send a PE kit into school at the start of each half term and leave it on your child’s peg until the end of the half term if you wish.

 

Home Reading

It is vitally important that your child reads at home. We believe that this is essential for your child to understand and access all other subjects. 

See your child's class teacher for their login details to Rising Stars Reading Planet which will track your child's reading at home.

 

Homework

See your child's class teacher for their login details to our home learning portal on Google Classrooms. Here you will find all of your homework for the week which can be completed online.

 

Water Bottles

We would encourage your child to bring a labelled water bottle to school, so that they can keep hydrated throughout the day.

 

Pencil Cases etc

We ask that pencil cases and toys not be brought into school. Neither should any other personal belongings unless agreed beforehand with a staff member.

 

Clothing and Outdoor learning

We are very lucky as a school to have some amazing outdoor spaces to explore and we will be looking to take advantage of this as much as possible. Therefore, please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately for outdoor activities i.e. coats and hats when it’s cold and sun cream in the summer months.

Please ensure that all clothing (including school jumpers and cardigans) are named. That way we can return them to you should they get lost.
