Fern

Welcome to Fern Class!

Welcome to the Spring Term my fabulous Fern Class and what an exciting term of learning we have planned! This term we will be diving into the history of play and toys through our new project question 'What is play?' Start thinking about all the ways you play in and out of school and ask your grown-ups what they used to play with when they were children. 

Friendly reminders:  

Tuesdays and Thursdays - Please ensure that your child has their PE kit on Tuesdays and Thursdays and that it is the school PE kit. If there are any issues surrounding this, please do get in touch.

Thursdays - Children's decodable reading books will be changed on Thursdays, so please make sure your child's previous book is in their bags ready to be swapped. It is even better if their reading book is kept in their bags as we often use these for 1:1 reading in school. 

Fridays - On Friday afternoons, Ferns will enjoy time in our school's library and choose a book to enjoy at home to promote reading for pleasure. The book your child has chosen may be slightly beyond their reading ability, so we encourage these books to be shared with them by an adult at home, who can support reading the text or simple take pleasure in reading it to their child. 

What is play?

This is our project enquiry question, which we will explore in many exciting ways! Please read our project map below for more details of what we will be doing throughout the term.
