Autumn 2 Update 2021

 

R.E 

Our topic this half term is 'Mary, Our Mother`. The children have been learning that God sent the Angel Gabriel with a message to Mary and why this is important. They will also earn that God asked Mary to be the mother of His son and will have an opportunity to reflect on her response. They will continue by hearing about Mary’s visit to her cousin, Elizabeth and reflect on the good news. They will begin to consider how we can prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus and learn that Mary is our mother in heaven and that she is looking after us. Our Caritas focus this half term is Family and Community.

 

English

 During this half-term we will be looking at a variety of books. This includes a continuation of our work around the book ’Stanley’s Stick’. We will be having a large emphasis on writing single clauses ensuring correct punctuation and finger spaces are used. We will also be writing instructions, introducing imperative verbs. 

 

Maths

We are learning more about addition and subtraction, knowing how to record using symbols and linking to known number facts up to 20. We will go on to explore estimating, doubling and odd and even numbers. We will also learn how to apply our problem solving and reasoning skills to extend our place value learning

A love of reading!

Learning to read is perhaps one of the greatest gifts we can ever give a child. Many adults remember those special books that we loved to read as children; those books that made us laugh, smile and the adventure they took us on.

At St Rose’s, we want to give every child this same passion for reading. We have worked with the School Book List to resource every classroom book corner at school with a fresh range of appropriate and exciting texts. 

Please follow the link below to see the books that are in your child’s book corner. You may wish to purchase one or two of these fabulous texts to enjoy with your child at home.

Reading Books

Please read at home with your child and sign the reading record when you have read. Regrettably, we are unable to change school reading books until the previous books have been returned and the reading record is signed.

Reading books will be allocated on a Monday to read throughout the week. These need to be handed back in on a Friday, ready for new books to be given the following Monday. Bugclub is to be used for reading over the weekends. 

 

Homework 

Homework will be sent out via Google Classroom every Thursday and is due in the following Thursday.

 

P.E., Forest School and Library Days

Our P.E. days are Monday and Thursday. P.E. kits should be kept in school at all times. We will send them home over the school holidays. All long hair needs to be tied back. 

Our Forest School day is Friday. Children will have a session once a fortnight. Please make sure that they have the appropriate named kit in school. Our Library day is Wednesday afternoon.

 

Morning Routine

 

 

When children arrive in the morning they are expected to say goodbye to their parents on the playground. The children then come into class and change out of their coats and outdoor shoes and put away their book bags, water bottles and lunch boxes. Once their belongings are away the children go to their places where they complete early morning work. At 8:45 the classroom door is closed and registration is taken, finishing with morning prayer. Any child arriving after 8:45 must enter school through the Main Reception Area where a late slip must be completed.
