Information for Autumn Term 

Your teachers and teaching assistants are:

Mrs. Gibbison (Mon-Wed)

Mrs. Savage (Thurs-Fri)

Miss Forbes (Mon-Thurs)

Miss Bull (Thurs-Fri)

Timings for the School Day:

Start- 8:45

Lunch- 12:00-12:45

Hometime- 3:00



PE is on a Monday (children get changed for this) and Wednesday (children remove shoes and socks). No earrings on these days please. 

Please leave PE kit in a small bag at school. 

Practise getting changed with your child to ensure they are confident with tricky things like buttons, zips and laces. 



This term’s topic is ‘We are Explorers.’ This covers Neil Armstrong and the moon landings and Christopher Columbus. We will be finding out how attitudes towards these two significant figures have changed over time. We will be learning about Plants, Animals and Humans in Science.



Spelling task: We will send the words the children have been practising in class on a Friday. They need to look at the word, cover it, have a go at writing it and then check to see if they have spelt it correctly. We hope to see these words spelt correctly when the children use them in their writing.

Maths task: Be a RockStar: Can you reach your target? Each term, your child will have a counting or times tables task and tick chart in their reading diary. Each time you practise the skill, give it a sign on the sheet.  There are prizes for children who reach the target for the term. This term’s target is to practise 18 times or more! You will find more information about this on Seesaw where we have shared examples.

Reading: Please read with your child at least three times a week and sign your child’s reading diary. Your child will bring home a book on their reading colour or phonics level to read themselves plus a book from the class library to share with a grown up. As always, there are prizes for reading milestones! Reading folders need to be brought to school every day. We will count the reads on a Thursday ready to give out the reading rewards on a Friday.
