Our topic this half term is:

Enchanted Woodland


This half term, our topic is ‘Enchanted Woodland' in which the children will explore and learn about different  plants and trees. 



In English, the children will be looking at the classic text 'The Jolly Postman' and they will have the opportunity to write a range of different letters and write letters in role as different fairy tale characters. We will also read and respond to a variety of different traditional tales. Later in the half term, the children will look at poetry and also write a recount of our school trip.


During Maths lessons this half term we will be introducing the concepts of early multiplication and division, as well as exploring fractions. The children will also continue to practise their number facts and start to apply their number knowledge to solve more complex problems.



Homework is set on a Friday and is to be returned by Wednesday the following week.


Please make sure that your child brings their water bottle, reading book and book bag into school every day. Your child may not necessarily read on the same day each week so it is really important that they come prepared every day. We cannot issue the next book until the previous book has been returned. Thank you for your support with this matter.


Please ensure your child's PE kit is in school at all times. They will be sent home at the end of each term to be washed.


Thank you parents and carers for supporting your children at home with their reading and phonics. It really does make a difference.
