Happy Term 3!

New project

Raaaaaaarrrrrrrrrr! Welcome to our 3rd project of the year Can You Hear The Rumble In The Jungle? This is one of the children’s favourites as they get to explore strange new jungles and all the weird and wonderful creatures they contain. We shall have a jungle focus in all our subjects and have already begun our new class story, the classic Monkey Puzzle. We also look forward to presenting a jungle-themed class assembly to you all after half term.


Children are soaring through their reading levels and also should be beginning to finish – or already finished – their 1st reading records. We appreciate all your hard work at home in this respect. Please continue to read with your children daily to ensure their progress this year, we continue to not give out class homework to make time for this! There will be prizes for children with full reading records!


Maths this term will cover word problems, 3D shapes, days of the week and months of the year. To help you could test the children with tricky spellings of these words such as Wednesday.


As mentioned, the children will read the classic Monkey Puzzle story and then innovate it! You can find some great versions of this timeless classic on YuuTube.
