Welcome to Sherwood class!
Our Autumn 1 topic this year was 'The World Around Me'. We covered a wide range of things within this topic including looking at the geography of Cuckney and where we live, our place in the school community, the plants and wildlife in our school environment and what happens during harvest time each year.
This term we are exploring 'Festivals of Light'. We will be finding out about some of the special times that are celebrated around the world at this time of year including bonfire night, Diwali, Hanukkah and Christmas. We will also be getting ready to perform our Christmas production Hey Ewe to you all in December (please check the school calendar for dates and times of performances).
Homework this term will be phonics based activities to be completed. Children will be able to complete a task of their choice each week and return them all in their homework books before the end of the term. Children who have completed a piece each week will be entered into a draw to win a prize!
Spellings and times tables are tested on a Friday and children are moved onto the next card once they are able to spell all words correctly (including forming letters correctly) or complete all the times tables correctly. You can help your child by practising a few of these, along with a few pages of their reading book each night.
