In English, our writing and novel study focus books are 'Little Red Riding Hood' and 'Hansel and Gretel' by Bethan Woolvinn

Our key learning will be continuing to secure our phonics knowledge and expanding our sentences. Please continue to practise at home using the phonics sheets and books or Spelling Shed. Children should also be reading at home daily.

In Science, our new topic is plants and living things. We will be looking at how they adapt to their surroundings.

In DT, we will be sewing. We will be focusing on making our own puppets. In computing, we will be focusing on effective searching on the internet.  To do this we will look at the terminology associated with searching and create a leaflet to help someone search for information on the Internet. In RE, we will be looking at pilgrammage.

Our PE days will be  Thursday and Friday.
