Our teacher is Mrs Cardwell and our teaching assistants are Mrs Newbold and Mrs Wingfield.  
We will keep you up to date with our learning on this page with lots of photos of the hard work we are doing and fun we are having.  We will also include on this page information about our curriculum and links to fun and interesting websites that may help continue learning at home.
Reading at home as well as school really helps you to become a better reader.  If you read at home 3 or more times a week you will be recognised on our Reading Champs trophies and receive dojo points.  We have lots of new books to choose from in our library.
We will have a spelling challenge each week.  Spellings will be on ClassDojo each Monday and we will do a spelling challenge the following Monday.  
Each day we have a handwriting lesson where we practise forming letters of the correct size and shape.  As our handwriting improves we will receive handwriting awards.
This term our PE days are Tuesday and Friday so please make sure you come in leggings or jogging bottoms and that earrings are taken out or you have medical tape that you are able to cover them with.

Autumn Term
Our Topic this term is Magical Lands.  On our first day we went exploring in the forest and went hunting for fairies.  We found lots of clues that the fairies live there but we haven't seen any yet!  We also created natural art using things we had found in the forest, just like the artist Andy Goldsworthy.
