Welcome back to a new academic year. I hope you have all had a wonderful break and enjoyed some family time. I am very happy to be teaching your child this year and can’t wait to get going!
Our topic for this term is ‘Me, Myself and I’, where the children in reception will be focusing on feelings, families and changes. The children in KS1 will be focusing on the local area, comparing their lives to different generations and timelines. The children in reception will be settling in, and discussing their family and routines. In our science lessons this half term we will be learning all about the body. The children in reception will be focusing on senses and the children in KS1 will start to learn about the organs. If your child would like to complete any research or if they have anything they would like to share relating to the topics such as pictures of them as a baby it would be very welcomed.
The children will have PE lessons every Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning this half term, so PE kits will be need to be in school on these days if possible.
I will be sending home reading books for KS1 straight away and will start sending some home with reception over the coming weeks, it would be greatly appreciated if you could listen to your child read often.
Thank you for your support.
