Our Autumn topic is called ‘Another World’. Throughout the topic, the children will be immersed in the magical world of Narnia.  Our topic focuses on historical aspects such as toys, games and household objects from the past.  The children will also learn what it is like to be an evacuee as we follow the story of the children from Narnia.  There will be an opportunity to explore and develop map skills.  The wintry world of Narnia will be a backdrop for our science work on seasons and materials.



In Key Stage One our homework is given out on Friday and is due back to school no later than the following Thursday. It will normally consist of reading and spelling words containing sounds that we have been learning during that week.

Other homework will include Maths, Comprehension (Year Two), Topic and Come and See tasks.

Reading is such a valuable life skill and is also relevant across all subjects within school. Regular practise really does make a huge difference to reading ability, as does talking about what has been read with someone at home too. Please try to ensure your child reads at home for at least 15 minutes each night and gets their home/school diary signed to indicate that this has happened. 

In our class, PE will take place on Monday and Wednesday. It is expected that your child will have the appropriate indoor and outdoor PE kit available on these days. The correct PE kit consists of: a white t-shirt, red shorts and plimsolls for indoor sports. Trainers are required for outdoor activities.
