Bonkers About Bugs!

Why bother about bugs?

This half-term we will be learning about minibeasts. In science, we will learn about living things such as plants, minibeasts and their habitats. In English, we will be reading a variety of topic based texts and writing for a range of purposes. In maths, our topics will be recapping multiplication and division, and learning about measurement. In RE we will continue to learn about Sikhism. In D&T we will be designing and making our own sandwiches, and in art we will be creating minibeast sculptures out of clay.

General Information

Book-bags should be brought into school every day: we encourage children to be as independent as possible and to remember their book-bag for themselves.

We hear children read in Guided Reading sessions, and individually at other times.

Children are encouraged to change their books regularly.

Our PE days are;

    Burgundy Class: Monday (indoor) and Thursday (outdoor)

Ruby Class: Monday (indoor) and Wednesday (outdoor)

On PE days please come to school wearing your Morley PE kit (see here for more details). A PE kit consists of: T-shirt, shorts, long-sleeved top and jogging bottoms, spare socks, trainers or plimsolls.  Long hair must be tied back and no jewellery please.

PE lesson picChildren will need to bring a filled and named water bottle to school each day. The class tap is drinking water and the children are able to fill their bottles as needed.
