Routines

 
Reading: Foxes class will be given a reading book appropriate to their reading level to read at home and school. Please ensure that this comes to school every day with their reading record so we can read regularly with your child. Please also ensure your child reads as often as possible at home, even if you share the reading as it is just as important for children to hear stories aloud as it for them to read to support their comprehension. 
 
 PE: Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child wears their PE kit to school on these days. Pleasure ensure the children are dressed appropriately in tracksuit bottoms or leggings as many lessons will take place outside. It is essential that your child brings a fleece or jacket if the weather is cold.
 
Homework set: Wednesday
Homework due: Monday

Our Learning Journey
 
Modern Europe
 
Enquiry: Why should people holiday in Europe?
 Our key topic for terms 3 and 4 is Modern Europe. We will explore this topic from a Geography perspective. We will develop skills to help us read and use maps and compasses as well as looking closely at specific European countries and understanding more about their cultures and customs.  
 
English:
 Our key text for Term 3 is called 'Rooftoppers' by Katherine Rundell. This is a powerful story of fate, travel and never giving up. The story is based in Paris and follows 'Sophie' as she tries to find her mother. We will use many key parts of this text to inspire writing from the children including Newspaper Reports and Diary writing. 
 
Maths: 
 
During Terms 2 and 3 we will deepen our understanding of Multiplication and Division as well as look at Money, Statistics, Length, Perimeter and Fractions.
 
 
Science:
Our Science focus is Forces and Magnets. We will develop our understanding of how magnets repel and attract one another as well as learning how forces such as pushing and pulling on different surfaces changes speed etc.

 Please remember that children must have a water bottle at school filled with water and a healthy snack.
