Our first Theme this year will be to learn all about Prehistoric times. We will be starting with the Stone Age and going all the way to the Iron Age. We will be focusing on what it would have been like to live in those times, how they would have survived, and how we know so much information about it.

Other themes for the year are:

Theme 1- Stone Age to Iron Age
Theme 2 - Rainforests
Theme 3- Roman Rampage!

Reading


We love reading in the Terrific Tigers, we will be reading a range of books through the year. During our first term, we are enjoying Bill's New Frock by Anne Fine, a great book that creates some fantastic conversations

We encourage the children to read at home every night, you play an important role in this so please try to listen to your child read and sign their home school book at least 3 times a week. It is very important, even in KS2, that children hear their grownups reading to them, too. The children are awarded with 1 stamp for 3 reads, and 5 stamps for reading every night.

P.E.

Please ensure your children are brought to school in their P.E. kits on a Monday and Tuesday.  We are scheduled to do P.E. on both these days but do have opportunites to go into the Forest school throughout the week whatever the weather, so please ensure your child has appropriate footwear in school to change into.

Home Learning

Currently, home learning can be accessed on Mathletics and Education City for Rising Stars Reading Rockets. It is great to see the children accessing these resources to support their learning at home. Your child has been given their login for both of these sites. Please let us know if you require these again.

How can you help?

• Practise times tables with your child – you could do this by chanting them on car journeys, or putting them around the house such as going up the stairs or on their favourite toys.

• Listen to them read regularly and ask them questions about the story and characters- you can find examples of questions to ask on the 'Parents' page
• Help your child with research on their topic
• Encourage your child to use Mathletics and check on their progress regularly
• Check the Home/School diary regularly and sign it. Children will be rewarded for signed reads in their Reading Record!
