Children need to come to school in their PE kit on the day that they have PE. They will stay in their kit for the whole day. Please ensure the children wear suitable clothes for outdoor PE (jogging bottoms, jumper and trainers). 

We will communicate a lot through Class DOJO. We will send messages and post pictures and information about what the children are learning. If you need support downloading the app or signing in then please ask your child's class teacher.
Our topic for this half term is muck, mess and mixtures. We will be exploring which substances make the biggest bubbles, which liquids mix with water and the difference between liquids which are safe and liquids which are not safe. We will be reading George's Marvellous Medicine and making recipes from Roald Dahl's Revolting Recipes.  The knowledge organiser below has some information about our topic. 

Muck, mess and mixtures!

In Maths this half term, we will recap the learning from last half term about place value. We will then focus on addition and subtraction. 
In Science this half term we will be learning all about properties of materials. We will learn all about how to make materials waterproof and why different materials are suited to making different items.
