Our project: Memory Box
Autumn 1 
Our project this term is 'Memory Box'. We will be looking back and recalling memories of being babies whilst comparing them to our current selves to see how things have changed. Our writing will therefore surround, recounts, diary entries, descriptions and more. Our project will encourage our imaginations when writing through cross curricular subjects such as History; when researching historical transportation. And in Science when discovering babies needs and relating to ourselves. Not only will we be looking back in time but telling the time in math alongside shape, addition, sequencing and more! We'll be finishing off the term by making our own memory boxes so get gathering to make it something really worth reflecting on in the years to come! 



Your child will be given a reading book, a phonics reading book and a reading diary.  They will need to keep these in their book bags to bring to school every day.  Please listen to your child read every day and ask them questions about the text to check their understanding.  If the book has been read, and you have made a note in the reading record diary, a new book will be given to read if the school thinks they are ready. It is also very important that you read stories to your child as well to develop their vocabulary and imagination. Thank you for your support at home! 

Join us for Family Story on Fridays at 2.45pm - 3.00pm. We look forward to seeing you.

Spellings will be given out with the homework grid at the beginning of the term. That whole term's spellings will be attached so please keep safe and learn the relevant weeks spellings with your children. 


Please encourage your children to practice their spellings every day. 


Spellings tests are every Monday. 



Homework grids are given out each term. Each child needs to complete four pieces from the grid, one from each row, by the end of term. Please return homework books to school every Monday so that they can be marked and returned home on Wednesday's.  



This term PE will be on a Monday and Wednesday. PE kits are to be kept in school in case a change of clothes is ever required or a special PE activity occurs. Thank you for ensuring your child's PE kit is clearly named. 

Please feel welcome to come and talk to your class teacher after school to arrange a meeting if you have any questions or queries.
