Dear Parents/Carers,


Welcome back to Autumn 2! The school topic for Autumn 2 is “Can We Live Without Technology?” (see separate document).


Classroom Staff

Miss Pixton is the Classroom Teacher, Mrs Mason is the Teaching Assistant and Mrs Taylor is the PPA cover for one afternoon a week.



For Autumn 2, Pictor class are focussing on stories from familiar settings and poems with structure (riddles).



For Autumn 2, Pictor class are learning about Money and Multiplication and Division. In order to help your child progress through the year, please ensure they are secure with their number bonds to 20 as well as helping them to learn their two, ten and five times tables.



Children are read with in at least once a week 1:1 and once in a small reading group. Please leave a comment in the child’s reading diary so Mrs Mason knows how much of the books has been read. Mrs Mason will check each child’s reading diary frequently to see if they require new books to bring home.



Your child will continue to move through the Letters and Sounds phonics scheme, starting off with a recap of phase 5 then moving on to phase 6. This year, there will be a big focus on teaching spelling rules.



The children will be doing PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (Dance with JC Dance). Please ensure your child has their PE kit (white t-shirt, shorts, pumps) in school and that all items are clearly labelled.



The children will receive English and Maths homework every week, and topic homework when appropriate. I would ask that the children attempt the homework independently but please support your child if needed. As well as this, I do ask that you read regularly with your child. Even if they have read the book, it is good practice to re-read the book so your child becomes more confident and fluent.



I have attached our class timetable for Autumn 2 to Pictor class.


General Reminders…

  • Any letters or reply slips, which need to be returned, can be put in your child’s book bag. The children are encouraged to check them each morning and give things in before the register.
  • The children will have access to water using a cup a class set of cups; however, they can bring in their own named water bottle if they wish to.
  • In Key Stage 1 the children receive free fruit as a mid-morning snack and will be encouraged to try everything.
  • If your child wishes to have milk please visit the website and register. Cool Milk will then add your child to the list for the following week.


If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate ask me in person or on Dojo.


Kind regards,


Miss S. Pixton
