Important Information
PE Lessons

Forest School
Forest School is on Wednesdays. Make sure you have your wellies and a coat in school as we go out no matter what the weather is like. Girls may be more comfortable in trousers for forest school as skirts/dresses can be a little uncomfortable under our waterproof trousers.
As we approach the cooler months please ensure that you also have a hat, scarf and pair of gloves in school for Forest School.

Literacy:

 

This term we will be learning about explanation texts, non-chronological reports and narrative texts. We are also focusing on key skills such as full stops, capital letters and punctuation in order to shine in our fortnightly big writes.

 

Topic:

This half term our theme is St Lucia.

 

We will be learning about the landscape and temperature of St Lucia, as well as about their culture. We will be comparing all of these with ours here in England

 

What do you already know of St Lucia?

What do you think the temperature is like there?

What do you think the landscapes are like there?

 

Think about these questions, and bring them along to school along with any other questions you have about St Lucia.
