Welcome to

Great Casterton CE Primary School

Walt Disney

Spring Term 2

This term our topic is Australia. We will be comparing our learning about the UK and particularly London with learning about Australia and Sydney. Our Literacy work will support this too, and we will be reading Grandad's Island and writing a narrative and an information piece linked to this book.  You can find out what else we will be covering this term by looking at our knowledge organiser which will give you an overview of the terms learning.

Homework will still be Tough Ten maths (and handwriting for year 1 as well)  and will come home on Thursday to be returned by the following Wednesday. Year 2 will also have spellings to learn for a test on Thursday. Reading is a really important focus in KS1 and children succeed best when they read at both home and school. We have daily reading lessons but please support your child by listening to them read their books at home and filling in their reading record.

PE will be on Wednesday and Friday, but please ensure named PE kits are in school for the term. We will send them home at the end of the term so they can be washed etc.

Please don't hesitate to contact me via dojo, or the school office if you need help with anything.
