PE Days: Wednesday and Friday

Please ensure that FULL PE kit is worn to school on a Wednesday and Friday. Children need to have their purple Welland shirt, black shorts or trousers and trainers. If your child wears earrings, please can remove them on the morning of our PE days. Your child will not be able to take part in any competitive aspects of our PE lessons if they are wearing earrings. 

Homework

 Each child has a login for TT Rockstars. This will help your child with their times tables knowledge and they can access this at home. We ask that your child accesses TT Rockstars at home as part of their weekly homework. 

Please also check our Poland Class on 'Teams' to see any messages regarding homework and other aspects of Academy life.

Reading

 We ask all of our pupils to read every evening with an adult at home. Please ensure that reading records and reading books come into school each day. We have a raffle ticket rewards in place.  Each time a child reads at home and their reading record is signed by a parent, they will receive a raffle ticket. A child will also receive a raffle ticket each time they bring their reading book and record into school. On the final week before half-term, a raffle ticket will be drawn and one of the children will receive a voucher to spend. 

Break

Children are able to bring in their own snack for break times. Please ensure your child brings in a healthy snack such as fruit or yoghurt. Alternatively, children are provided with a piece of fruit or a vegetable. 

Water Bottles: Please ensure your child brings in a named water bottle daily, especially in the warmer weather. We politely ask that your child's water bottle contains water only, not juice. 

Autumn Term 1

For the Autumn Term our topic is called, 'Where are we in the world?' This topic is all about our local area and where we live. We will be learning about geographical features, studying maps and even taking a walk around our local area to see what we can find! We will then be having a walk around a village just outside Peterborough so we can learn about different places. 

In English this term, we will be looking at the books 'The Building Boy' and 'The True Story of the Three Little Pigs'. We are going to be using the writing rainbow to focus on key writing features and create our own texts about these books.

In Maths, we are focusing on place value. We will be looking at how numbers are represented, adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers, counting in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s and solving problems based on these skills. We will be using a range of resources and equipment to support us.

Classroom Rules 

At the beginning of the year we created our own set of classroom rules. We always follow our rules so we have a safe and happy classroom.  We also follow our three school rules:

  • Be safe 
  • Be ready
  • Be respectful
