We are learning

This term our topic is holidays, if you have any photos of your children on holiday please feel free to email them to the class email address below or send in a photo we can photocopy.

We will be looking at world around us closely, we will be looking at differences in places we go on holiday and where we live. We are checking the temperature daily, making instruments to measure aspects of our weather system and comparing changes in weather over time. This links with our literacy topic ‘Narratives with a familiar setting’. We will be looking at some stories about the wold we live in.

In our science we will be focusing on the world we live in and what it is made of, looking closely at different things to see what they are made of.

We will also be looking at the special books in our lives, this will include some religious texts but also our favourite stories.

Home learning

All children should have a reading book which can be shared as many times as you wish. They will be changed every Friday but should be returned on Thursday to be checked in.

Some children will have a word list of words they can put into sentences, to support the deeper understanding of the words they are learning.

Some pupils may receive additional personal homework from time to time.


PE kits and Forrest school clothing will remain in school until the last lesson before the end of term.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us on our class email addresses if you have any concerns or questions at

Thank you for your continued support.
