Reading is fundamental. In fact, it is one of the most important ingredients to becoming all that you can be. Reading develops your brain, provides a window into the world around you and gives you a greater chance to succeed.

Please support your child read by hearing them at least four times a week and completing their Reading Record. Thank you!

We would like to invite the children to take part in a termly project which they should undertake in addition to their reading and learning their spellings and maths facts.

The children should choose a minimum of one task per section or more if they wish!

Children will be awarded a certificate upon the completion of their project.

Be a writer!
Write a description of a character from one of your favourite Fairy Tales (Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel, Cinderella etc.) You could draw a picture too! Don’t forget to include adjectives (describing words).
Write your own fantasy story. Fantasy stories can include mythical creatures like dragons, unicorns and fairies.
Write about the job you would like to do when you grow up. Why do you want to do it? What do you think it will be like?
Be a detective!
Linked to our history topic, ‘Toys’, interview a member of your family to find out about the toys they used to play with when they were little. Write out their answers and include pictures if you can!
In March, we will be learning about jobs that people do. Find out about the job of a family member or someone in the local community. Create a poster of your findings. You could ask them questions about their role, draw pictures and include key facts.
Go on a material hunt around your house (or just out and about) and write a list of the objects you found and the materials they were made from.
Get creative!
In Computing this term, we will be TV chefs! Practise at home by making something in the kitchen with an adult. Take pictures of you cooking and of your creations.
Our Science topic is ‘Plants’. Make a picture or collage using leaves, twigs and flowers. You can photograph the plants or stick them down.
Create a picture of your favourite toys. You could use paint, colouring pencils, pens, collage, crayons or anything you wish.
