We have been learning about the Ancient Egyptians so far this half term, and enjoyed discovering different precious artefacts and interesting stories about different Pharaohs. After half term, we will be moving on to 'Alchemy Island'.


We have been reading 'The Eye of the Wolf' this half term. We have really enjoyed this book about the tale of a boy and a wolf sharing their stories with each other through a unique bond. 


It is imperative for the progression of your child's English that you find the time to read with your child weekly.  This doesn't need to be for long, but finding 5 to 10 minute gaps in which you can read and expose your child to vocabulary and texts which they might otherwise not be able to access would be hugely beneficial.


Outdoor PE this half term is on a Tuesday, and indoor is on Thursday.  Please come to school wearing PE kit suitable for the cold weather. 


Home work is set on a Monday and due in the following Monday at 9am.

The homework is SPaG, Mathletics and TT Rockstars, as well as weekly spelling and reading.

Your child's log in details can be found in their diary.
