Mission to Mars - Autumn Term

This term, our topic is 'Mission to Mars'. Through our topic we will be exploring the planets and the solar system using the book 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers as a starting point.The children will be comparing planet Earth and another planet voted for by the class.  Please see the topic learning web for other possible learning opportunities that will be taking place this half term.

Reading books

To fit with current guidelines and to ensure we are being as safe as we can with changing reading books, this will be the procedure for Foundation Phase ( Reception, Year 1 and Year 2)

Week 1 – Your child will be given a reading activity to complete. These will be set through Seesaw, please ask in class if you require your child's log in details. This will focus on a reading skill, phonics development or spelling. Below there are some links to online reading resources that you can access if you wish to have additional reading during this week. 


Week 2 – Your child will be given a new reading book appropriate to their reading ability. Please can you share the book with your child at home and make a note in their reading record about how they managed with their book.

Books will be sent home on a Friday. The day for returning books will be the following Friday. This will allow bags, books and reading diaries to be quarantined in school before they are handled by Staff.

Staff will be changing the books on a Wednesday/Thursday so we have moved the day for the books to be returned to allow additional days for you to quarantine these at home if you so wish. This will be at your own discretion.
