What We Are Learning in Topic

This term the children will be exploring fiction and non-fiction texts through the story of ‘Leaf’. Each week the children will be given a variety of opportunities to write in a variety if contexts including stories, descriptions, letters and recounts.


The picture book  draws on themes about the environment, prejudice against those who seem different and learning to communicate, illustrated in a manner which combines the naturalistic and the fantastic.


The story provides children with many opportunities to reflect on their own relationships and interactions, as well as on the importance of listening and sharing with others. It is a moving story of a community coming together to conquer the challenge of fear.

Reading Morning:  8:40-8:55 

It is of the utmost importance that you read with your child every day.  The children change their books 3 times a week; Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.




Spellings are given out every week on Wednesday. Spelling books should be returned on Monday so that new spellings can go home and our spelling test is on Tuesday. Please help your children practice their spellings daily.


Learning Logs

Each half term we will have a topic based home learning project. Every child should complete at least one activity each week. Please feel free to help your child make, models, encourage them to draw pictures and write sentence about the topic. We look forward to seeing them in class. 

Help your child at home

  • learn the times tables up to 12
