gbm This half term we will be continuing to encourage the children to write for different purposes and recognise a variety of text types. We will be looking again at familiar, repetitive stories and encouraging the children to recognise rhyme and pattern within stories. We will also begin to prepare and look forward to Christmas and begin our performance practice.

Collins - Busy Ant Maths

The children have been working very hard in mathematics following a programme called busy ants. The homework we set links directly to work we have been doing in class and so it is very important they have support doing the homework to reinforce their understanding.


Our next 2 RE topics are going to be Belonging and Waiting. We will be looking at the sacraments of baptism and confirmation and helping the children to understand the importance and significance of being part of the churches family. It would be lovely if you could send in a picture of your child’s baptism for us to use for a display within our class.
