Mrs Leighton and I hope that you have all had a fun filled and relaxing Christmas break and that everyone is feeling refreshed for the term ahead!
Our first two days back will be RE focused looking at Judaism.
This half term:
In English we will be learning The Gruffalo story working up to creating our own beasts to write a story.
In Science, we will be learning about deciduous and evergreen trees and in Maths we will be moving on to operations and their functions.
Our first PE lesson will be Monday 8th January. PE will then occur every Monday and Tuesday as far as possible.
Please feel free to come and speak to me or write in the reading records if there's anything you'd like me to know!
We are looking forward to the Harvest festival tomorrow.
It starts at 10am at All Saints' Church and we would love to see lots of you there to watch us.
We have been learning about halving this week in Maths. We have recognised halves and made half a sandwich.
Your child could help you with some cooking or baking at home and half the ingredients or portions by sharing it equally into 2.
Next week we will be looking at doubling.
Thank you to all who could make it to the Meet the Teacher event last week. If you weren't able to make it please find the letter that you would have been given on the link below. The most important things are reading books need to be in school every day, whether you have read the previous night or not. PE kits should also stay in school until each half term when we will send them home to wash.
Please can we remind everyone to name everything- shoes, coats, and jumpers especially. Now that it's getting colder please send a pair of jogging bottoms and jumper for outdoor PE in.
Finally, your children have come home today with the first set of spellings. These will be put into reading logs every Monday for a spelling test the following Monday. The days of learning them by re-writting them are gone, we encourage you to make it as fun as possible, perhaps hide them in the house to be found and read; put all the words on a tray, cover it and remove one and see if they can spot which is missing, or cut up the words and ask your child to put it back together like a jigsaw. Alternatively, if they want to write them they could use some fun coloured pens to write a word as many times in a minute as they can and try to beat themselves each night.
Thank you for your continued support, we are looking forward to our first trip next Tuesday 26th.
