We will not be doing Willow School this half term as we have a PE coach coming in for extra PE lessons.

 

Homework will be given on a Wednesday afternoon ready to hand in on the following Tuesday morning.

 

Reading

We read every day in class during our Guided Reading time.  Children will be heard read in school at least twice a week.  Some children may be heard read by our parent readers who come into school on a weekly basis.  We encourage you to read with your child at home as often you can. 

Please ensure that your child brings their reading journal every day so that we can record any comments in it.  For every 10 entries in their reading journal the children get to visit Mrs Boddy's Golden Box for a prize and move onto the next planet on our Rocket Into Reading board.  When they have read 70 times they receive a certificate and prize in Golden Book assembly. 

Topic

Our topic work for this term is Around the World in 60 Days.  We will be looking at travel and transport from the past and nowadays.  We will be making and designing our own moving vehicles. We will also be creating our own paintings with vehicles in the style of Jackson Pollock! We will be looking at the author John Burningham and his stories on different vehicles.
