Our Topic this half term is

Fire! Fire!

We are going to start the term learning about Winter. We will be learning about the signs of Winter and keeping a record of the weather. I wonder how cold it will get? Will we get to play in the snow?

In English we will be reading Zog and taking on the roles of the different characters. As these characters we will be writing about what has happened to us in the story. Once we have a good understanding of the story we will be writing our own version.

This half term there be will be learning about The Great Fire of London. We will be reading fiction and non- fiction books to help us learn lots of interesting facts. We are going to use this knowledge to write our own information text about the fire.

In Science we will be learning about Everyday Materials. We will be learning about the different properties of the materials. We will be sorting objects according to their properties and the materials they are made from.

In DT we are going to use the knowledge we have learnt about materials to help us build a structure.


Class Information


Please make sure that you're listening to your children read each night.  A couple of pages and some simple questions about the text will make a HUGE improvement to ALL areas of their work!  


**Whilst we only change books twice a week (Mon and Thurs)  we keep a daily record on whether the children have read their books or not.  If they read four times a week they move up on our reading wall and will attend the class reading party at the end of every half get reading!!**


PE Kit

Monday and Friday - is our PE lessons so please make sure you come to school in your PE kit, no earrings and your hair is tied back if it is long.



The children at Nuttall are able to enjoy snack each week.  This varies each day from sandwiches, yogurts, cheese and biscuits and dips and celery/carrots etc. The children are hands on in helping to make their own snack which develops their food technology skills.  If you would like your child to have snack it is £1 for the week, this can be paid on a Monday morning. 



Maths homework will be set on Purple Mash. The homework will link to what the children have been taught in class each week. If you can not access it please let me know and I will give you a paper copy.

Children will be given spellings every Friday to learn for a test the following Friday.

Children are expected to read at least 4 times a week, this can be either the books we provide from school or by accessing the Bug club.


If you or your child/children are unsure of what to do, please come and see me as soon as possible. A record is kept of whether children complete their homework and reading.  



Spellings are handed out each Friday, children are to learn their spellings for a test on the following Friday. The children will be provided with a spelling sheet, they must use this to write their spellings out everyday ready for their weekly test.
