Reading will continue to be a school priority. All children are encouraged to read across the curriculum and at every opportunity.



A few reminders:

PE: Children have PE on Wednesday and Thursday this half term. Children should come dressed in their PE kit on these days.

Water: Children are encouraged to bring in a bottle of water each day which they can access at any time. Please ensure your child’s name is on their bottle.

Snack: KS1 children are provided with a piece of fruit at afternoon playtime. If you would like to send a snack for your child, then please make sure it is healthy. No chocolate, crisps or sweets please (we are a nut-free school).

We will be focusing on:

  • Join words and clauses using and. 
  • Punctuating sentences using a capital letter and a full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
  • Add suffixes to verbs where no change is needed to the root e.g -ed, -er, -ing, -est.
  • Changing the meaning of verbs and adjectives by adding the prefix un-.


In maths we will be focusing on these areas:

  • multiplication and division
  • fractions
  • position and direction

We will continue to focus on counting in 2s, 5s and 10s throughout the term, using the 100 square to support us.
