Term 1


Our value for this term is Thankfulness.


Our Topic title is Toy Story!

What are your favourite toys to play with?

What did your parents, carers or grandparents like to play with when they were young?

We will be looking at how toys have changed over history and asking the children and their families to share some of their favourite toys. 


Linking in with our toy topic, our core text this term is Traction Man is here by Mini Grey.  We have been acting out Traction Man's adventures around the house as he explores shipwrecks in the sink, rescues toys and battles evil pillows.


Reading books will be changed on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please record in your Reading Record each time you read. Children need to read the book at least twice before it is changed.

Library books will be changed on Tuesdays. 


Our PE session with FutureStars is on Tuesday afternoons, however, please have your PE kits in school every day as we often do PE on other days too. 


Homework sheets will be given out on a Friday, to be returned on the following Wednesday.
