Context for Learning

Our first topic in the Autumn term is called Memory Box. The children will be looking back to when they were little and sharing their memories of when they were born (with the help of parents and guardians).

Physical Development
Please ensure your child has a navy blue PE kit (shorts and T-shirt) available at all times. PE is usually on a Tuesday, but there may be other sessions during the week as well.





Children have snack every morning. Please ensure that you pay £1.20 per week. If you wish to pay by cheque please make it payable to ‘Lakeside Foundation Phase Snack Account’. If you would like to pay in advance: the amount for the first half term is £8.40 The total for the autumn term is £16.80.



To increase pupils’ confidence in communicating clearly with a variety of audiences including teachers, peers and familiar adults in everyday situations.


Homework Books
Your child will take their reading folder home every Friday. There is also a homework book. If no homework has been set, please could your child do a book review on their reading book for that week. This can include a picture and, if able to do so, a sentence about their favourite part of the book.
Please return every Wednesday.

Children will have a new reading book every week and it is important they return their folder every Wednesday. Please listen to your child read daily as this will help develop fluency, expression and sight vocabulary recognition.
* After half term, to help your child learn the key words, we will send home a list of words they need to practise reading and writing.
* They will also choose a reading book from the class library.

At least once every half term we will send home a maths sheet to reinforce what the children are learning in class. During the term you may also have homework to reinforce other areas of learning.

Please help you child with learning number bonds to 5, 10 and beyond.  For further information on what your child will be learning in maths, please refer to the curriculum map sent via parent mail.
