Autumn Term 2

Welcome back, we hope you had a restful break over October half term.


Around the World

This term we are finding out about different countries; looking at the climate, learning about different food and famous buildings they have. We will have the opportunity to learn about different cultures, traditions and customs for each country.


We are looking forward to visiting as many countries as possible; we will be making passports and allowing the children to experience visiting an airport for our stunning start and trying as many different foods from the countries that we visit.


If anyone has any visited any countries that would like to share their experience with the children that would be fantastic; just let us know.



Every Friday the children will have the opportunity to bring something relating to the topic ‘Around the World.’ They are encouraged to share and talk about their object to the class. This helps them to strengthen children’s communication skills and help them to feel comfortable talking to their peers. They will begin to use descriptive words, full sentence, thoughts and emotions.

Snack and Water bottle

Your child will need a healthy snack such as fruit, vegetable or plain biscuit and named water bottle every day. Children can bring in a bottle of juice/carton that they can have with lunch.




Children will need to come to school on a Tuesday for WALES PE day. The school policy states children are not allowed to wear earrings during P.E and should either be removed before attending school or alternatively your child can remove it themselves before the lesson. If your child decides to do this they are responsible for their items and no responsibility will be held by the adults if anything goes missing.




Your child will be given a reading book and a record to bring home. He/she will get the opportunity to change their reading book twice a week on a Monday and Thursday. Please listen to your child read as often as possible and record any comments in the reading record. We really encourage reading at home and reading for 10 minutes daily is the fastest way to help your child progress. Once they’ve read 10 times they will be able to choose a prize.


We look forward to welcoming you to Wales Class in 4+. Please regularly check the website for information and don’t forget to look out for Facebook updates.


We have lots of exciting activities planned for the children and can’t wait to get started. We aim to make your time memorable, exciting and fun.
