Larch Learning!

New Routines

Larch class will start the day at 8:40 and finish the day at 3:10. You will come into school and leave school using the Larch classroom back door, which is labelled with 'Larch - Mrs. Crocker'


Within the next couple of weeks, children will be given a reading book to bring home. We love reading here at The Pines and it would be fantastic if our children could read at home every day!



Our regular PE lessons are on Monday and Wednesday


We will do PE outside whenever it is possible. Please make sure your child has suitable outdoor PE kit, including outdoor shoes, in school at all times. PE kits will go home on Fridays to be washed. Children will not be able to borrow spare PE kit.  


This Term

In Larch this term, we have been working really hard in all areas of our curriculum! Our maths learning has focused on place value, before moving on to adding and subtracting numbers up to 3 digits, crossing tens and hundreds.

Writing has allowed us to explore and write our own traditional tale as our fiction focus, moving on to writing an explanation text for non fiction. 


We have 2 very exciting books to read this term as our class novels, as well as lots of non fiction pieces to study in whole class reading.


In PE, we will be competing in the Berkshire Virtual School Games, as well as practising team games in our other session.
