Welcome back to the second half of our term!

We hope that you have all had a happy and restful week . 

This coming term we will have lots of exciting new work for the children to learn. 

Our  RE topic is: 

Following Jesus

We will hear how Jesus chose some of the first Disciples and consider how we should choose friends.

We will hear the story of the Good Samaritan and reflect on the message it has for us as followers of Jesus. We will learn about what it means to be a good friend.



Our topic work begins with ‘Who lives there?’ and throughout this half term we will find out about the UK as part of our geography unit. We will learn the four countries and their capital cities.


In English we will be reading some stories and moving onto Non Fiction. We will explore this as part of our Talk 4 writing unit. We will try to expand our sentences by using 'and' and 'but' in them. We will check our writing for capital letters and punctuation marks. We will continue to learn to write using the cursive style.


In Maths we will learn to count to at least 50, forwards and backwards, beginning with 0 or 1, or from any given number. This will build on our previous learning of numbers to 20. We will learn about grouping in 10s. We will develop our understanding of addition and subtraction by using our knowledge of counting on and number lines to aid. We will develop our understanding of number pairs to 10 by learning our number pairs to 20.

The children will continue to have access to a wide range of colour banded books which they can choose and change within the classroom. The children will read at least once each week with a teacher as part of a guided read. During this time we will practise key skills to help develop fluency and a note will be made in their diary. It is aboslutely essential that the children read each day at home for a few minutes. This is the time that they can practise the skills they have been taught. Please make sure that your child is reading every day and that any reading completed at home is recorded in their reading diaries. 

Homework will be given out in Homework books on a Friday. Please return to school on Monday. 

Our updated curriculum map is available on the website, which will give further information on all of the above. 

Many thanks in anticipation of all your support and hard work.
