Kingfishers Autumn Curriculum Newsletter – ‘Houses & Homes’

Welcome back to a new term and welcome all new Kingfishers!

This term our topic is ‘Houses and Homes!’ and we will be learning about all the different buildings and other dwellings that we call home.

We will start with the children talking and writing about their own home and who lives with them in their home. We will be learning about what buildings are made from. After half term we will be comparing homes old and new and focussing on homes in Tudor times.

Eagles Autumn Curriculum Newsletter – The Vicious Vikings!

Welcome back to you all after our long summer break. The children are settling in well to the new routines and higher expectations in Eagles Class.

With regard to homework, we have produced a home learning menu of tasks based around our new topic. This arrangement proved successful last year as children were able to choose their home learning to suit their individual tastes. Children can select an activity each week from a menu of writing, maths, art, DT, science and topic work. We also expect the children to be reading on a daily basis, at least twice a week aloud to an adult and that children complete a reading journal task once a week. The reading journals will be used for assessment purposes for all the children so it is essential that all handwriting is neatly presented and always legible.
