Please find below details of the curriculum for this term:
This term we will be continuing to read When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit.
We would like you to record how much you read each day in your reading record. Remember, it does not necessarily need to be a book, it can be a magazine or newspaper article.
We ask that the children bring in their completed reading records every Wednesday (same day as PE and as their homework is due). We will be recording how many times your child reads in the week - we are happy that the children complete this, but it must be signed by an adult. If the children wish to change their reading books on a day other than a Wednesday, they should bring their reading records and books in that day. They know where to put them to let us know that they need changing.
P.E. is every Wednesday.
Please come to school wearing PE kit suitable for outdoor learning. Earrings will either need to be removed, or covered with tape. It would be ideal if children didn't come into school wearing earrings on a Wednesday.
Home learning will be sent home on a Friday. On some occasions you will need to login to Google Classroom to complete the learning. All home learning is to be completed by the following Wednesday unless stated otherwise.
Times tables tests take place every Friday.
Any belongings brought to school e.g. clothing, lunch boxes, water bottles, hand sanitiser etc. should be clearly labelled.
Leave all your bits and bobs at home - you won't need your own stationery, toys or games.
Judith Kerr.. was one of Britain's most successful children's authors.
She was still producing stories and illustrations well into her 90s.
Best known for The Tiger Who Came to Tea and a series of picture books about Mog the cat, she combined great skill as an illustrator with a wry way with words.
She had an ability, which never left her, to see the world from a child's perspective.
