Welcome to Pine Class!
Our topic for this half term is called
'Towers, Tunnels and Turrets'
This topic will teach children about design, structures and materials. This project develops children’s knowledge of how to successfully design and build model bridges and buildings.
We will have the opportunity to experiment with marshmallows, spaghetti and we may even get to meet some tunnel building creatures!
Indoor PE - Monday (Gymnastics coach)
Outdoor PE - Thursday
Your planner and reading book must be in school everyday.
The children will be heard reading in school either individually or as part of a group during the week.
It is really important that your child reads at home every day and the planner is signed accordingly and the pages are recorded. Reading frequently has a huge positive effect on a child's reading development.
In Foundation and KS1 we follow the Read Write Inc Programme. The Read Write Inc. Phonics is a complete literacy programme, for 3 to 7 year-olds learning to read and write. The children review or learn a new sound (phoneme and grapheme) each day and also practise writing this sound on its own and in words.
We do handwriting practise every afternoon for ten minutes. The children have differentiated spellings each week with the spelling test being on a Friday morning.
If you have any questions, please just ask or write in your child's planner.
