Our Learning Challenge this term is:

‘Why can’t Meerkats live in the North Pole?’ this focuses on local geographical knowledge of the Poles and Equator. We will be learning about the Kalahari Desert and habitats. We will also be looking at hot and cold places and how we can use art and colour to explore hot and cold. Throughout this topic we will be learning and exploring new vocabulary. Look at the image below to see some of our new vocabulary.



Some things to remember:

Our PE day is Wednesday. Children will need a white t-shirt, black shorts and either black pumps or trainers. Could all girls also make sure hair is tied back on these days.
Mondays we are swimming. Children will either plain swim shorts or a costume and a towel. Could all girls also make sure hair is tied up or they have a swim hat to wear.
Homework is sent out on Friday. Please ensure that homework books are returned by Wednesday each week.
We endeavour to change reading books every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Please ensure that your child’s reading record is signed daily.

Class Dojo

At Abingdon Primary we use Class Dojos which is embedded within every year group. This provides the children with an opportunity to earn points based on skills and values created in school and also links in with the schools core values of resilience, respect and responsibility. We use Class Dojos to engage parents by sharing photos and videos of exciting moments in the classroom. It is also an effective way for teachers and parents to communicate.
