All curriculum subjects where possible will link with our theme.


Our English will incorporate a variety of both fiction and non-fiction texts. We will focus this term on the story 'Dogger' By Shirley Hughes and 'Traction Man is Here' by Mini Grey. Our non- fiction text will look at Whales linked to Science.

General Information

Home Readers

We encourage the children to change their home reader books on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Please ensure your child’s bag contains the book you wish to change, plus the blue home school Reading Record. The teachers will collect all the blue Reading Records in on the above days and they will be returned the same day. We hope your child will continue to enjoy the home reading scheme this year.

Libary Books

Children will have the opportunity to visit the school libary weekly and will be issued with books which they are allowed to take home. Please ensure your child does not loose their book and has their book in school should they wish to change it.  



Homework challenges will be set every half term. Chldren in Year 1 will be given a red homework book and the Year 2 children will continue to work in their purple homework book. Please ensure your child hands these in at the end of each half term so that they can be marked and new challenges can be stuck in.

Mathletics Homework (the interactive computer programme we subscribe to). Each child’s login card will be stapled on the inside of their blue Home Reading Record book. Please encourage your child to use this whenever possible to consolidate maths skills.

All children have been allocated with a Reading Shed log in where children can practise spellings linked to their year group.


Water Bottles

Please ensure that all water bottles for use within the classrooms are transparent and named and not placed in the children's book bags as leakages cause irreparable damage.

PE Kit

Could we ask that you please ensure your child has their full named PE kit in school all week. It would be helpful if your child is familiar with their name label and can identify it.

Children require an indoor kit (shorts and T-shirt) and outdoor kit (warm tracksuit, socks and waterproof trainers)

We do go outdoors in all weather conditions for PE so it is essential when the colder weather approaches that the children are correctly kitted out.

PE kits will be sent home after outdoor PE on Wednesday during the winter months as it can get very dirty and is often wet. We kindly ask it is returned washed ready for their next outdoor PE lesson te following week.

Schools Bags

As space is limited within the classroom we kindly ask that children do not bring large rucksacks to school. The book bags that children had in reception are perfect. Please again ensure they are clearly labelled to save time at the end of the school day.
