Dear Parents/Carers

Autumn Term Information

This term we will be exploring the theme of ‘Living Things’. This topic will provide the children with a large variety of learning opportunities which will enable the children to develop and learn more about the world around them.

The children will be learning about all of the different types of animals. They will then be investigating the different animals that they can find in the local environment. We will then be looking at the different animals and habitats that can be found across the world. We will also be looking at the geography of our local area. The children will then be creating some artwork using their new knowledge.

Full details of the topic are available in the planning underneath.

If your children have any toys or books related to the topic that they would like to show to the class, that would be fantastic.

Every day checklist:

  • Book bag
  • Reading book and record
  • Coat

Weather – All children will need a coat in school (which needs to be labelled with their name) as we will be accessing the outdoor area in all weathers.

Reading – Books will be changed on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure that reading diaries are completed to show when you have read with your child and how many pages you have read. Book bags need to be in school every day, with reading books inside, so that we can change books and update their words.

The children have P.E on a Monday and Thursday. Please ensure that your child has a PE kit in school.

Please do not hesitate to come and speak to me if you need any more information or have any questions.
