Welcome to Fortune Class!

Fortune Apples
Fortune is a North American eating apple with a spicy flavour. It flowers twice a year but cannot pollinate itself, making it quite difficult to grow and tricky to find in the shops. They are crunchy and sweet and make a good dessert apple. 


Term 1

Welcome back, we hope you have had a fun filled Summer and are ready to get back into the swing of things.

In English, we will be reading the story 'George's Marvellous Medicine'. We will use this story to inspire the children to use interesting adjectives and use conjunctions to extend their sentences.

In Maths, we will be securing children's knowledge of numbers and place value up to 100. We will also be recalling number bonds to 10 and using this knowledge to calculate number bonds to 20.

Our curriculum focus this term is called 'Messy Mixture'. We will be focusing on 'How I can become an Every Day Artist?' So if you could save some 'junk modelling' material which the children could use, would be most appreciated.


Further information is available in the newsletter.


Please could you ensure that your child is reading a minimum of 3 times a week, as this is important for their education.
