The curriculum for this term

This week we have moved onto learning about plants and plant growth. Your child will grow their own cress seeds and learn what plants need to grow.

If you would like to support this at home you could look at the seeds in fruit and vegetables and talk about their function.

Current home-learning expectations

Our expectation is that children in Year One should read for ten minutes a day and that children in Reception should read for five minutes a day.

Reading books need to come to school to be changed on a Monday and Thursday. Please have your reading pouches in school everyday. If your child brings home spellings they will be tested and changed every Friday.

This video will be helpful for those of you who wish to learn how we teach the sounds to your children as they learn to read. By watching this video you will be able to be consistent with what your child is learning at school:

Any other information?
