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
 
Ice- Pole to Pole

Enquiry: Why are the poles so important to the Earth? 

In geography, we will be locating the world’s seven continents and oceans, describing where the hot and colder areas of the world are. We will be researching the life and triumphs of Robert Falcon Scott who led an expedition across Antarctica to the South Pole. This topic will lead many of our learning opportunities across the curriculum, feeding into our English, art, music and DT lessons. 

Maths

 
In terms 3 and 4, Rabbits will be covering Multiplication, Division and Geometry. 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 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.
