Dear Dove Families,

We cannot believe that we are only entering week three, the children have all settled in so well.  They seem to be comfortable with the routines in year one and have produced some excellent writing about The Colour Monster. 

This week we will continue to look at constructing sentences in our English lessons.  In maths, we will finish our place value unit and start to look at addition.  Our topic focus is moths this week, and we have some beautiful new books to share.  We will also start to look at the changing seasons and identifying trees in the school grounds.  We are also going to start our textiles work in DT.  

The class timetable can be found on the tabs along with a homework page linked to our topic.  Children should choose a box to complete every week, along with practising counting forwards and backwards to 100 in ones and tens.  Additionally, children should read every night; please ensure that your children reread their reading book in the days between the book change. . I will check homework in on Mondays to give children the whole week (including the weekend) to complete it. You can send me photos via email of completed work such as the bug hotel or playing the game to save you printing things out and sending it in.

PE will be on Thursdays and Fridays.  Doves should come into school in their full PE kit.

We are really looking forward to seeing all the Doves for another fun filled learning week, next week.

Best wishes,


Mrs. Eremita & Mrs. Manning
