Little Wandle for Parents


Spring Curriculum

Autumn 1

Blue Oak have settled back into school after the holidays. We have been spending time getting back into routine and getting to know our new friends .  


PE is on Wednesday and Friday.  PE may take place outside, weather permitting, so please make sure that your child has suitable footwear (trainers) and tracksuit bottoms as well as shorts.  They should have their PE kit in school every day. (Please refer to the Meet the Teacher presentation below for a full PE kit list).


In PE we will be learning to play Netball and developing our skills in Gymnastics.  The year 5 pupils will be attending swimming every Friday.  Children who are attending swimming need to bring their hat, a swimming costume and a towel every Friday.


We have snack time after break so a healthy snacks can be sent in - fruit, raisins, cereal bars, etc. and they should come in with a named bottle of water. Please do not send in cartons of juice or squash.  

Sweets should not be sent in for snack time.


Reading books will be given out on Mondays to be returned the following Friday.  Please make sure you read with your child, then comment and signing the reading record.  Please ensure that you also return their book.

Homework will also be available on the website and also through Google Classroom.

The new google classroom code has been sent via an email.


In the Autumn term we will be exploring Space as our theme is Earth and Beyond.  We will focus on the Solar System - including phases of the Moon and the planets.
