Toy Delivery!

Working together with Chestnuts, the Lower School are embarking on a new topic - Toy Delivery!

This is an exciting topic combining letter writing with sharing stories about our favourite toys. 

We will be basing a lot of our learning around the story of 'Dogger' as we continue to focus on writing clear sentences, but now with the introduction of many exciting adjectives. Through a thorough investigation into the Shirley Hughes book we will feel empathy for the main character, compare this experience to our own and then eventually recrete the story - but with our own creative spin. 

In Maths we will all be working on number, with the Year 1 children looking at number to 20, including standard addition and subtraction, while Year 2 will bemastering their times tables, with a focus on a new mutlplication pattern each week (2x, 10x, 5x, 3x adn 4x).

In History and Science we will be investigating the materials that our toys are made of and why this material plays a crucial role in making them fun to play with. In Geography we will be looking at ourlocal area, including how to write our own addresses.

PE will take place every week and starts on the first Tuesday back - so don't forget those PE kits!

Class expectations

Please make sure that your child's clothes are all named (including PE kits).

Please provide your child with a water bottle every day.

Please can we ask that children do not bring in toys, pencil cases or over-sized PE bags as we just do not have the space to keep them safe.

Please send your child's reading record (keep with the books in the wallet provided) to school every day.

Please remember to read with your child every day and record this in their reading record. Reading at home is essential to learning and accessing all that is on offer at school.

With your support at home, we are aiming to make your child;

- an independent learner

- a good listener using their eyes and ears

- responsible for changing their books, keeping the classroom tidy and looking after their PE kit/uniform

—If you or your child is unhappy with something in class/school please come and speak to us straight away. In this way we can support your child in the best way possible.

Thank you for your support.
