Autumn Term


Please continue to send your child in with water; and, when appropriate, please ensure your child comes into school with a sunhat and is wearing sun cream, or a coat if wet/cold.  


Please continue to ensure your child brings minimal possessions into school.  When the children have PE, they should continue to wear their Bitham Brook PE kit into school with the school jumper over the top (if weather conditions require a jumper).  Please note the Bitham Brook PE kit is a plain white t-shirt and black shorts/leggings/tracksuit with daps/trainers.  Other sports clothing is not acceptable as it is important that, as a school, we have pride in our appearance.   



    Please ensure the children bring their reading book everyday and their spelling book on a Friday.

    We will be learning how to write a non-chronological report about the rainforest.  We will also be writing a new fairy tale based on Little Red Riding Hood.




    • During reading we will be working our way through our class books The Great Kapok Tree and Little Red Riding Hood, asking questions using the VIPERS (Vocabulary, Infer, Predict, Explain, Retrieve, Summarise) scheme so the children deepen their understanding of the text.



    We are going to learn about classical music and a piece entitled Night Ferry by Anna Clyne.




    In PSHE we will be covering the 'Being Me in My World' unit, looking at hopes and fears for the year.




    • Our theme is 'What did Jesus teach?' looking at the key question: Is it possible to be kind to everyone all of the time?




    We will be learning about animals including humans.




    We will be exploring what a computer is by identifying how inputs and outputs work.




    We will be understanding geographical similarities and differences between the areas of Westbury and Weymouth.
