Term 2 - ITALY
This term we are moving from our historical focus on the Roman period and looking at a geographical focus on Italy. Our understanding of the country began whilst looking at Rome during the Roman period and we will now look at how the country has developed over time. Looking at the physical geography of the region and the effect human impact has had over time, as well as looking at the country's many famous landmarks and some of the traditions Italy is renowned for.

Our learning this term will be history focused on the Romans - we will work on the chronology, key historical figures and the impact and legacy the Roman period left us with.
This Term, Wrens class will have PE on Mondays and Thursdays. Children should keep their P.E kits hung on their pegs all week. Children need: Black shorts, green t-shirt and trainers/plimsolls, as the weather turns colder track suit bottoms and a sweat shirt can be worn for outdoor PE. (Please can girls who wear tights also keep a pair of black PE socks in their PE bag).
Children are expected to read for at least 15 minutes every day.
Record the reading your child has done in their yellow Reading Records.
Reading records will be checked weekly and books changed daily when necessary.
(Please note books will not be changed unless reading is recorded as it will be assumed that the book has not been finished.)
Children need to bring their reading wallets into school every day.
Children will be given their homework on a Wednesday and are expected to complete and hand it in by the following Monday. Times tables will feature heavily as well as spellings, and a weekly task which will either be maths or English focused. All homework is used to reinforce the learning that has taken place in the classroom.
Voluntary Active Learn Maths Games
All children have been given an Active Learn login enabling them to access the fun Maths games online at home.
These games are completely voluntary, but are provided to allow children the opportunity to revisit and build upon previous learning, as well as to explore new learning.
It is important to drink enough water each day and so we recommend bringing in a clean water bottle daily which can be kept in the classroom and drunk during snack times. Water bottles can also be filled up from the sink in the classroom. Throughout the day, there are many opportunities for the children to have a drink of water. If they do not have a water bottle, the children can have a drink from the water fountains in school at break times and lunchtimes. Only WATER is allowed in bottles that are brought into the classroom. Squashes and fruit juices can be drunk with lunches, however are not allowed to be drunk at any other time of the school day.
