This half term, we will be Scientists! For our Science, we will be investigating Materials. For
this, the children will be using the story ‘Lost and Found’. For this, the children will spend the
day testing out different materials to build a floating boat! After our Science, we are excitied to
go visit a local Church. More information on this trip to follow.

Reading books and homework
Your child will be given:
- a reading record
- a reading book
- a learning Journal
The reading record shows how much reading your child is doing at home.
We expect all children to read for 10 minutes - 3 times a week. You need to write the date, the name of the book and what pages they have read with a short comment on how they have done in their reading record and this needs to be handed in once a week. New reading records will be handed out next week.
Each Friday your child will be given 3 key tasks based on phonics / spelling, maths (speedy spider) and a reading book. They will also be given a choice of 16 activities from the #30 activities to do in their learning Journal. Homework needs to be handed back into school by the following Wednesday.
