Term 2 Home Learning

Please find below the home learning for children who attend English and/ or Maths learning in Poppy Class.

Those who only attend for Maths do not need to do Poppy English (and vice versa!)

'Who is sleeping here?' We shared our 'Lift-The-Flap' information texts about how different animals hibernate in winter with Chestnut Class.

Can you match who is sleeping here? ( Bear, ladybird, fish, polar bear, dormouse, bat, stag beetle, hedgehog, queen bumblebee)

Precision Reading Ideas

Welcome back! We hope you had an enjoyable summer and are ready for the new school year. We are looking forward to an amazing year!


PE will be on Monday and Friday- children need to come to school in their PE kits. Earrings need to be taken out or covered at home.  Please ensure that any clothing and belongings brought into school are clearly labelled including water bottles, lunch boxes, book bags, all items in their PE kit, school uniform and coats. Please ensure your child brings a water bottle into school every day that only contains water. Fruit is provided each day for playtime, but children are welcome to bring in their own piece of fruit or vegetable for their snack. 


Home learning will be set next week and is to be completed throughout the term.  It is due on Monday 16th October. Each day children are expected to do a short reading and maths activity at home. This can include practising the Precision Teaching reading words, Mathletics and BugClub.  It is vital to practise these key skills every day to help your child to make good progress. Please record any reading in their Reading Records so that your child can earn their certificates and prizes!



Just a reminder that all children from Year 1 need to wear a school tie as part of their uniform. These can be elasticated ties and can be purchased from the school office. Thank you. 


Here to help!

If you ever have any questions, please do come and speak to us or via the class email or by writing in the reading record books.


Thank you for your support and we look forward to a great year ahead.
