Look at our lovely classroom.


In our maths work we have just begun to use the ‘Power Maths’ scheme which is good fun. We have met the characters – Flo, Ash, Dexter, Astrid and Sparks. We hope that they will help with our maths skills in counting, times tables, reading and writing numbers and lots more! It’s a great scheme and we think it will make our learning in maths even better!

In English we have read  'The Pumpkin Project' by Katie Smith. We really enjoyed this story about Lottie trying to grow and an enormous pumpkin with the help of her Gramps.


We are now reading " The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark" by Jill Tomlinson. We are enjoying reading  about Plop  and why he is afraid of the dark.

Look at Raged's amazing writing about Plop. Can you see how much progress she has made since September? We are so proud of Raged!

In phonics we use the ‘Snappy Phonics’ scheme to help us with our reading and spelling of new words.


In Ali class we want our children to read as much as possible, so please encourage your child by reading daily with them at home. Remember to sign their planner so they can change their book.



Well done Hamdi who was our reader of the term for Autumn 1

Our topic this half term is ‘Our School and Local Area’. We will be looking at maps, following routes and visiting the park.


In Science we are looking at how amazing we all are! We will look at how we have changed since we were born and study our senses.

Our Art work this half term we will be creating observational drawings of our playground. We will then use these as a stimulus to create paintings of our playground.

In ICT we will be looking at 'Digital Literacy' and how to improve our keyboard skills. We will also be looking at animations and how we can use these in our computing work.


For our outdoor Games session on Fridays  we will be working with Manchester City to look at different ways we can stay active and be connected – how lucky are we?



Our indoor PE session is on Wednesday afternoon and the children will be learning Judo with a qualified Judo teacher. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school all week.
