Dear Parents and Carers,

 

Welcome back to you all. We hope you had a restful Break. We are looking forward to an exciting and engaging Autumn term. 

 

This term’s topic is called “All about me - (My story)” We will be looking at identity and culture, sharing & comparing with others in our community. Exploring self and embracing differences.

 

We will continue to focus on ensuring our students are happy, nurtured, feel safe and are able to engage with their learning.

 

English - This term we will continue to work on our phonics and our focus on communication. We will also continue our work on ‘Shape Coding’, which will help our students speak and write in composed and well ordered sentences.  We will be reading a wide range of books chosen by the students and will be practising writing sentences using symbols and core vocabulary regularly.
