The Day the Crayons Quit
For the first two weeks of term, we will be completing a book study based around ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’. This will have a PSHE, English and Art focus where we will be thinking about feelings, emotions and changes. A home learning sheet has been sent home with activities to complete and hand in before or on 17th September.
Eat the Rainbow
We can’t wait to get stuck into our second project Eat the Rainbow this half term! After receiving an important letter from the school kitchen, we will be helping them to create some healthy snacks for our end of project picnic. We will become Scientists by considering which foods are healthy and which are unhealthy, sorting foods into different food groups and considering what should be included in a healthy, balanced diet. We will also be learning about our own personal hygiene and how exercise impacts our body. Throughout this project, we will apply our writing skills to instructions and poetry. In DT we will be designing, making and evaluating healthy snacks.
In addition to the home learning sheets that will be sent home at the beginning of a new project, children are encouraged to read and practise their spellings at home.
Please read with your child as often as possible at home and record in their home school book which is checked daily. Each class has their own reading race where for every day a child reads at home they move their name up the chart. When a child has read 4 times or more over the week they are entered into a raffle to win a prize at the end of each half term. All children are encouraged to take part in our school wide reading challenge, which can be completed over the whole school year and can be found on the website.
Children will receive a weekly list of spellings to learn at home. These will be sent home every Friday, commencing Friday 10th September and then checked in school the following Friday.
King Campus – Tuesday and Thursday
Kirk Campus – Monday and Thursday
The children will have an indoor and outdoor slot weekly, therefore please provide them with suitable clothing for both of their slots. We will be continuing with the daily run, so please ensure that your child has suitable footwear to participate every day. PE kits will be sent home on a Friday to be washed and returned on Monday.
