Reading and home learning expectations

 

Children will have a book in school which is closely linked to their phonics group and will read with an adult in school as often as possible. 
 

Your child’s progress in reading will be greatly aided by reading with an adult at home.

 

Children are more than welcome to read anything they would like to at home be it magazines or recipes to promote a 'love for reading'!

Please read at least 3 times a week.

 

PE kits

 

PE is on a Wednesday and Thursday.

 

 

 Our Curriculum Spring Term 2

PE

This unit builds on the learning from Year 1 Multi-Skills: Bat and Ball and is designed to develop your children’s skills using a tennis racket and a cricket bat. They will recap how to hold each one correctly and will develop their striking skills from hitting a stationary ball to one that has been thrown or rolled by a partner. Each lesson contains clearly differentiated activities which allow children to practise and apply their skills both individually and as part of a team. This unit also introduces children to the use of simple tactics in tennis and cricket and provides opportunities for them to try these in small-sided games.

 

RE

What can we learn from sacred books? 

 

  • Recognise that sacred texts contain stories which are special to many people and should be treated with respect.
  • Re-tell stories from the Christian Bible and stories from another faith; suggest the meaning of these stories.
  •  Ask and suggest answers to questions arising from stories Jesus told and from another religion.
  •  Talk about issues of good and bad, right and wrong arising from the stories.
