Moon Zoom
Spring 2
Our project this term is 'Moon Zoom'. We will be thinking about things we know about the moon and outer space and discussing what we would like to find out. We will be discussing the exciting event that has happened in the playground just before half term finished. We will be exploring 'Beegu' in literacy and writing character descriptions. We will continue to practice holding sentences and writing them with clear finger spaces, capital letters and full stops. In Science we will be exploring 'Everyday Materials' and will be discussing properties of materials. In Phonics we will continue to work hard to learn our sounds and to segment and blend into words. In PE we will be learning softball and continuing with Real PE. 

Spellings will be given out on Wednesdays and tested the following Wednesday.

Please encourage your children to practise their spellings every day. 

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


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 endeavour to 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. It is also very important that you read stories to your child as well to develop their vocabulary and imagination.


Homework grids will be given out. 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 on a Wednesday so that they can be marked and returned home on Fridays


This term PE will be on a Monday and Friday. 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.
