  • We will be looking at different materials and their properties. Can your child point out objects at home that are hard or soft?


  • we will be focusing on Our town and looking locally where we live. Does your child have a favourite place to visit in Derby? we would love to see pictures and some writing about their favourite place.


  • As it is a new school year and a new class we will be thinking about how we can be a kind friend. children could write some rules of how they could be a good friend.
