Our learning this half term is based around the theme Once Upon a Time....
In English we will be reading The True Story of The Three Little Pigs! We will be listening to Alexander T Wolf's version of the story, and decide if he is telling the truth or not. We will then read The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig, and write our own version of the story.

Children will need a white or green round neck t-shirt, shorts and plimsolls or trainers. They can also come in navy blue or black joggers and jumper/hoodie. Long hair will need to be tied back. If possible, earrings should be taken out. If this is not possible, they should be covered with plasters or micro-pore tape.
Homework will be posted on Weduc every Friday. This will be a link to an activity on Education City or a spelling activity. The children need to complete this by the following Wednesday and they will receive a stamp on their Bear Hunt Sheet for all completed homework.
We expect children to read every night at home, and this to be recorded in the children's reading diary. Children will put stickers in their diary when they have reached 25, 50, 75, 100, 125, 150, 175 and 200 nights worth of reading, along with a small reward.
