Key Information

Reading
Please bring your reading books and reading record into school everyday. To ensure we are COVID friendly, we are quarantining books on their return to school before re-releasing them. 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 Thursday- 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. 

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

Our Learning
 
On Safari!

Enquiry: How does life in Kenya compare to life in the UK?

We are becoming Safari experts, opening up our own reserves to support endangered species and welcome tourists. We will be designing the reserve, creating tourism leaflets and looking at animal food chains. We will be exploring the geographical features, history and culture of Africa, comparing the lives of children in Kenya to our own lives. Key texts include: Meerkat Mail by Emily Gravett, Africa is Not a Country by Margy Burns Knight and Mark Melnicove and Lila and the Secret of Rain by David Conway & Jude Daly. 

Maths
 
In terms 5 and 6, Rabbits will be ensuring they are ready for year 3, by covering all of the 'ready to progress' maths criteria. In addition to this, we will be covering: Geometry- Position and direction, Measurement- Mass, capacity and temperature and Measurement- Time. 
 
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.
