Autumn Term

Our topic this term is.... Anglo Saxons and Vikings!

During this term, we will be learning about gravity and atmospheric forces in science leading into some learning on the geography of space. In art we are discovering the wonders and skills of printing techniques and being inspired by the pop art movement of the 1960s. We are looking through the history of Britain following the retreat of the Roman Empire and the peoples who invaded after. In addition to swimming on Fridays, we will be learning ancient Mauri tribal dancing to coincide with the Rugby World Cup.

P.E days are Tuesday. Please come dressed in P.E kit to school on those days.

P.E kit consists of:

- Black shorts or joggers

- White t- shirt

- Black trainers

- School jumper

On Friday's we will be going swimming. This is compulsory for all children and is free! Please bring your swimming costumes, a towel and long hair must be tied back. 

Homework will be given out on a Friday and expected back by the following Thursday.

Reading books and reading records will be sent home daily and it is expected that at least three reads are recorded a week where children have read aloud to an adult. Please do try and find the time to read with your child it is a fantastic experience and can greatly benefit their fluency and comprehension. 

Please provide your child with fresh drinking water in a resealable bottle daily. Squash or fizzy drinks are not suitable. A piece of fruit or vegetables will be a perfect break-time snack. As the weather is variable this time of year please remember to bring a coat.
