Welcome to the Spring Term!

 

I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to starting our new topic of “Marvellous Me”, followed by “Dinosaurs” after half term. Topics will be based around these themes where possible.

 

 

In English, we will be studying persuasive writing, narrative, and poetry. Alongside this, Anne Fine will be our author focus. In maths, we will be looking at written multiplication calculations and problems, measuring area, and fractions. Science will involve exploring the skeletons, muscles and teeth of living things, as well as nutrition and the digestive system.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our focus for P.E this term is passing techniques and invasion games. This term, our P.E. slots are Tuesday afternoon (indoor) and Friday afternoon (outdoor). Please ensure that you bring your P.E. kit along to every session, so that you do not miss out on an important part of our curriculum. If you are unable to remove earrings yourself, please do not wear them to school on P.E. days.

Just a few reminders:

- Please bring your reading book and reading log every day

- Remember to bring a healthy snack to enjoy at break time

- Ensure that you name each part of your uniform, as this makes it much easier to return any misplaced items!

 

If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to speak to me at the door after school, make an appointment with the office, or give me a call via the school office number.

Homework this term

 

Homework will be provided every half term, and activities can be completed in any order. Once tasks have been completed, children can hand their book in to be marked.

 

Reading is the most important activity to do at home, and both parents and children are encouraged to make a note in their reading log. We have a class reading record chart, and children who read 3 times a week or more outside of school will be rewarded with house points.

 

As well as this, don't forget to participate in our Book Bingo challenge, which you should be able to locate in the back of the reading record books. You have until the end of the Autumn term to complete as many challenges as you can! Each time  you get 4-in-a-row, come and see me, and we can add your name to the raffle!
