Autumn Term 2018


This half term our topic will be ‘Reach for the Stars’ and we will be learning about space and the universe around us. To compliment this topic, we will be reading books in English that are linked to space like ‘Aliens love Underpants’. Phonics will continue to be a major focus for this term and we will revise Phase 3 of ‘Letters and Sounds’ before moving on to Phase 4. For further details of our curriculum please see the attached curriculum map.


Our P.E day is Friday – Please ensure that your child has a full named P.E kit in class. As the weather becomes colder, the children will need a tracksuit top and bottoms to keep them warm. May I remind you to please remove your child’s earrings on Fridays (unless your child is able to do this themselves).This is for the health and safety of your child.  Long hair must be tied back.


The children will bring home a spellings book from the 2nd week of term with a few of the words from phonics to read, copy and practise writing.


Please remember to sign your child’s reading book every time you read so that the children can earn their reading certificates.  This can be a read with any adult or older child.
