Kingfishers, Magpies and Swallows

Our topic for spring 2019 is ‘Rumble in the Jungle’. We will be classifying and identifying facts about different animals. The children will be given the opportunity to have a hands on experience with a range of different reptiles and amphibians! We will be exploring maps and globes and identifying seas and oceans. We will explore what a jungle looks like and how animals live in different habitats. The children will be focusing on poetry and the story ‘Dear Zoo’ in English. Within Mathematics the children will be building on their knowledge of shape and place value.


PE Days

Swallows – Monday and Wednesday

Magpies – Monday and Thursday

Kingfishers – Monday and Tuesday

Please ensure your child brings their PE kit each week and all items of uniform are named in order for misplaced items to be returned. All earrings MUST be removed at home before PE lessons.


Reading and Spellings

All children’s books will be changed once a week (unless otherwise requested by the child).

Please could you ensure your child reads at least twice a week at home, this will enable them to build upon their reading skills taught within the school day, please don’t forget to sign your child’s reading record when they have read with you.

We would like to thank you for your support.

On Fridays the children will receive spellings to learn.  Please encourage your children to practice their spellings throughout the week at home, below is a sheet with support for engaging children in spelling practice.

If you have any questions please come in and ask.

Thank you

Miss Beales, Mrs Havell and Miss Locksmith
