'On the Move'

This half term we will be learning all about transport and travel. We will be looking at the book 'Naughty Bus', looking at the journey he goes on and making our own version of the story. We will also be looking at our own journeys, where we have been, what we did while we were there and how we travelled there.

Helping your child at home

Your child has now been given a school reading book every week on a specific day. Please try to read with your child as much as you can and then bring the book back on the same day the following week. Ask your children questions about the book and talk about the pictures with them. Ask them to discuss how the characters are feeling and why. leaving a comment in your child's reading journal helps us to know what your child has completed at home.


Every Friday, your child will get their home/school book which will contain details of what your child has learnt that week. We will also assign homework for your child to complete over the weekend.


Independent learning is a very important part of school life. Please can you encourage independence with your child by letting them get dressed by themselves, fastening buttons, pouring their own drinks, etc. 


Thank-you for your continued support
