Welcome back to the second half of our Spring term!
Last half term I was extremely pleased to see how much the children enjoyed and engaged with their 'Out of this World' topic. They produced some wonderful work and have retained some interesting facts which they have shared in assembly to the rest of the school!
Our new theme is 'Into the Wild'! This theme will be running through until May half term. In English we will be looking at Fantasy stories, Adventure stories, instructions and leaflets and will continue to focus on our phonics in preparation for the Phonics Screening Check in June. In Maths we will continue with addition and subtraction and will be moving onto numbers up to 50. We will also be looking at length, height, weight and volume. In Science we will be looking at plants and this will be linked with looking at Christopher Columbus and an exploration of the 7 continents and the 5 oceans. We will also be looking at Conservation efforts around the world, discoveries of new species of animals and plants and protecting endangered animals. I am also looking to book a school trip which will link with our theme. A letter with further details will sent home later in the term.
- Our PE days will now be Monday and Thursday so please ensure PE kits are in school for these days and all earrings are removed.
- All children need to have a coat in school every day just in case the weather turns chilly again.
- Please ensure your child has a water bottle with them every day.
- Homework will continue to be set on a Friday and due on a Wednesday with weekly Spelling tests now on a Thursday. Please ensure your child is reading the required number of times at home and these reads are recorded in their planners. Please also ensure that they are regularly completing their homework as this will aid their progress.
If you have any queries or concerns then please feel free to speak to me or make an appointment with the office.
Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to an exciting Spring term.
