Key Information

Reading
Please bring your reading books and reading record into school everyday. We will support children when changing their books, please clearly write in reading records if a book is completed at home so we don't change books unnecessarily. 

  PE
Monday and Wednesday- Please ensure your child wears their PE kit to school on these days. All PE lessons will take place outside and unless the weather is really bad, they will continue to happen outside. It is essential that your child brings a fleece and jacket if the weather is cold and wet so that lessons can continue. 
 
Forest School
Rabbit's Forest school sessions will take place on Thursdays, beginning Thursday 16th September. Please keep a look out for further information about your child's group in the next week. On forest school days, children need to come to school in their forest school clothes, ready for the weather conditions. Please make sure children have a waterproof jacket and wellies, a water bottle and a sun hat/ suncream if it is sunny. 

Homework: Will be given out each Wednesday. Please return it by the following Monday. 
 

Our Learning
 
My Journey So Far...

Enquiry: What makes a journey?

We begin the year by looking at our own history and geography. We will explore the changes in ourselves from when we were babies, discussing the changes that have happened and might happen in the future. We will also look at our journeys to school, as well as other aspects of the local area. In addition, we will be creating self-portraits in art. 

Maths
 
In terms 1 and 2, Rabbits will be covering place value, addition and subtraction. During this time, we will recap prior learning and explore new concepts. Homework will reflect the learning from the week, giving children another opportunity to practice new learning. Alongside this, children have access to Numbots and will begin to use Timestables Rockstars to support their number facts knowledge.  
 
As an ongoing request, please support your children with learning the time using an analogue clock or watch. We will take every opportunity in school but using it outside of the learning environment will help to embed learning.
