Reading For Pleasure


Friday Favourites

Every Friday, a child brings in one of their books and they share it with the rest of the class.






The children love getting comfy and choosing a book in the library to read!

Whole Class Reading

The children are currently reading 'Charlotte's Web' as a class. They also enjoy reading books from our book corner.

Cereal Bars

The children enjoyed tasting a variety of cereals and dried fruit.

They loved designing their own packaging and making their very own cereal bar! The children all wrote fantastic instructions on how to make them too!  


Jeans for Genes Day 


Autumn 1 Topic - Snap, Crackle & ROAAAR!


Have you ever collected coupons from a cereal box? Maybe you were saving them for a book or toy? Well, when Dan and his brother decide to collect 100 coupons so that they can have their very own lion, they assume the task will be easy enough. How wrong can you be?! We will be reading There's a Lion in My Cornflakes, looking at advertising, writing persuasive letters and designing our own cereal!



Please ensure your child comes to school in their full and correct P.E kit. Our P.E days are:

Wednesday - Outdoor P.E

Friday - Indoor P.E


Please ensure your child completes at least 4 pieces of home learning a week. This could be anything from reading a couple of pages of their book, practising their times tables or attending a club. For each piece of home learning, your child will receive a merit which can contribute to a home learning award each half term. Please make sure you record their home learning in their home learning diary provided and ensure it is signed and dated.


15 merits = Bronze award

20 merits = Silver award

25 merits = Gold award



Our challenge is to get everybody to at least a bronze award every half term! 



Times Tables Rockstars - The children will be tested on their times tables knowledge four times a week. Please ensure you help your child to practise their times tables and ensure they log in to Times Tables Rockstars daily as they will be given certain times tables to practise in line with the tests.


SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) Friday - There will be a SPaG test every Friday. Please ensure your child completes their SPaG homework which will be given out on a Friday in their SPaG book.

Please ensure your child accesses Times Tables Rockstars, Letter Join, Bug Club and Spelling Shed at home as this will really help to support their learning and prepare them for middle school.
