In English we are looking at a key text called ‘Dogger’ by Shirley Hughes. The children will be exploring the text in detail by reading and writing. The children will be also be learning about nouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs and tenses as well as writing sentences with spaces and the correct use of punctuation. All children will be learning joined up handwriting. In phonics children will be learning letter sounds and blending for reading and writing using the Read, Write, Inc programme.

Maths this term will consist of looking at different number systems and patterns, counting in different jumps, place value, arithmetic and problem solving.

This term’s topic is called ‘When I was young’ we will be exploring changes over time, from old to young and ordering by age. Be prepared for your children to ask you many questions about your childhood and their grandparent’s childhood, if you feel that you would like to come in and share your memories with the children then please let us know! To give the children some real life experience of the past we will be going on a trip to Milestone in Basingstoke.


Later on in the term we will be doing a science topic on humans and animals.





We love it when children continue to learn at home! You can use the Key Stage One Learning Platform to find maths, science, phonics and spellings activities and games. Please ensure that you keep on working with your children on reading, discussing books that you child has read, learn and apply spellings that are given and completing the homework and work on the mental maths skills at the front of the homework book.  Please note that same spellings will sometimes be sent home, this means that in their writing the children are still spelling them wrong so need a reminder of them. Spellings are set every Friday and will be tested on the following Friday.

Every week there will be one piece of homework in homework books. This will be sent out on Thursdays and must be returned by the following Tuesday.


Please see our homework policy for further information.
