* PE - Our PE day is Wednesday, It is essential that your child arrives to school in their PE kit every Wednesday. Please ensure that your child does not wear earrings or any other jewellery on this day. If your child cannot remove their earrings, they must arrive with tape or plasters already over their earrings that day. We cannot apply tape or plasters in school, children will not be able to participate in PE whilst wearing jewellery.
* Homework is given out every Thursday and should be returned on Monday. All children have a homework book with a homework grid for the half term. Homework includes: home reading (3 parent signatures required), spellings (test every Monday), TTRockstars and one other piece to be completed.
This half term, we will be learning...
This half term we will be studying the text 'The Pirates Next Door' by Jonny Duddle through a range of exciting speaking and listening, reading and writing activities. We will be producing and presenting a wonderful innovated story about someone else moving in next door to us!
This half term we will be covering the following areas in our Maths lessons...
Addition and Subtraction
Our topic for this half term is 'The Place Where I Live'. In geography we will be researching human and physical features of our locality, such as Witton Park. We will also be creating and planning for a new and exciting play area for our locality.
In history we will be looking at Blackburn and how it has changed throughout the years in particular how houses and playground equipment has evolved.
Our topic for this half term is 'Animals Including Humans'. We will be learning about and noticing that both animals and humans have offspring which grow into adults. We will also be looking closely at the similarities and differences between humans and animals.
