This Term's Learning Expedition

We are learning through a new topic for the Autumn term called 'Lost In The Woods'. See our curriculum map in the link below (coming shortly) to find out how we will be involving all curriculum areas.



Our PE day has changed for this year to two days: Tuesday and Wednesday. However please make sure your child has their PE kits in everyday in case of timetable changes. Could all clothing also be clearly named to avoid anything getting lost. 




On Mondays the children will receive two pieces of homework, usually Maths and English, and they will have the week to complete it and hand it in. The homework is a good way of consolidating or extending their learning of the week or term.


Reading - Children are expected to read at least three times a week, with Reading Records being collected every Monday for checking.


Mental arithmetic - It is also vital that Mental Maths strategies, including learning their times tables, are rehearsed regularly.


Spellings - these are to be practised each week and tested on a Friday. To help your child's spelling development, please practise with them daily - 5 minutes should be enough - using the given spelling sheets which will be taken home on a Monday.

Lost in the Woods artwork - these are sunset watercolour paints with tree silhouettes. The children experimented with colour mixing and various brushstrokes to achieve the desired effect. We think they're great.

PSHE - we have been learning about Growth Mindset where children believe they can improve in everything they do. We worked through 3 (or more drafts) to improve our sketches of dragons. The progress was stunning.
