Meet the Teacher! 


Thank you to all the parents who managed to attend our 'Meet the Teacher'. We hope you found it useful! 

We know lots of parents were unable to make it so we would like everyone to have the opportunity to see our presentation. 

For those people who were unable to attend, we will send the information pack home next week.

Autumn 2 Project


Pizza Problem! 


Mrs Lindsay needs our help! She would like to serve pizza at Explorers but needs to know which toppings are popular with children. 

Over the week the children will explore different toppings. They will find out which toppings are most popular and least popular in the class. The children will then design their own pizza and make a paper mock-up. At the end of the week, they will prepare their toppings and then make their own pizza. They will also have the opportunity to eat their pizza! 




Home Learning 

There is no home learning for this week long project. 

Project Vocabulary 


During our project, we are looking to develop the children's understanding and use of a range of vocabulary that is crucial to our learning. Our aim is to teach the children this vocabulary so that they can explain what it means. They should also be able to use it in a range of contexts both at school and at home. The children should be able to use it verbally when they talk and also in their written work. 


Please work with your child to develop their understanding of the definition of the word and to use this vocabulary with you at home.

Reading for Pleasure! 


Each year, the website 'Books for Topics' creates a recommended book list that children in each year group would enjoy. 

We have attached their ideas for this current school year. 


Reading - Tricky Words 


Here are the tricky words from the Little Wandle Programme. These can be practised at home with your child. 

Phonics Support 


The Little Wandle website has some fantastic videos to support parents who might be a little unsure about how to pronounce the sounds. We have included a link to them below.

Here are some phonic help guides to support parents with the different sounds we will learn.
