Eagle’s Autumn Term 1

Dear Parent/Carer

Welcome to Eagles! I hope that you have had a restful summer and are now ready to start the new school year. We will be easing gently into the school year by getting to know the children and assessing their needs in regards to any lost learning due to the restrictions they have had to endure.

 Topic: Our topic for this term is ‘All about Me’. We will explore the different parts of our bodies and how we need to nourish our bodies. We will be looking at the different stages of growing and how our needs change.

Science: We are going to investigate how animals grow and what are the similarities and differences between us and the animal world.

Maths: We will be focusing this term on addition and subtraction and place value including problem solving.

Literacy: In Literacy we will continue with daily speed sound work, with the emphasis on quick recognition and correct pronunciation which will help all children with their reading and spelling. We will also be exploring different poems that relate to our topic.

Art/DT: Our art will be based on our topic looking at healthy lunch boxes and making smoothies

RE: Our focus this term will be on Creation.

Computing: We will be investigating and understanding e-safety.

PSHE: Our topic of conversation will be New Beginnings.

PE: These lessons will be on Mondays and Fridays. This term we will be concentrating on gymnastics.

Homework: Homework grids will be sent out in a homework book each term. Children choose an activity from the grid each week to take on as their homework. Spelling will be sent home on a Friday to be learnt for the following Friday.

 REMINDERS:

If you wish your child to have milk every day an order form is available from the office and as a final plea please label all uniform clearly. PE is on a Monday and Friday the children must have a PE kit in school at all times.

If there are any questions or queries please do not hesitate to ask.

Yours faithfully

Mrs Edgar
