This Spring term, our topic is Once Upon a time. We will be spending our time learning about castles, kings and queens. As a part of our topic, we are going to create clay castles and junk model forts that we will test for strength. We will also be reading lots of fairy tales and having a go at writing our own versions. We have already read some wonderful fairy tales and would love to hear about the fairy tales that you read at home.
Homework activities will be sent home and a copy will be uploaded to our page for reference. Please do not feel pressured into completing every piece, we understand that family life can be very busy so just do what you can manage. Regular reading with your child is the most important thing you can do so if you do nothing else- Read, Read, READ!
PE will be on a Tuesday and Thursday each week.
Please ensure your child has a named PE kit in school, long hair is tied up and earrings are removed. Please also make sure that the spare socks are included in their kit.
Swimming lessons with 'Get in the Swim' will be on a Friday morning, so please ensure your child has their swimming kit with them, including a named hat. For further swimming information please refer to the school newsletters.
Show and Tell
Show and Tell will now be on a Thursday afternoon. The children are welcome to bring something small in, if they wish, and say a little something about it. I can't wait to see what the children bring in!
Your child will bring home reading books with words that use the sounds they have been learning in school. You may hear these reading books called ‘decodable books’. Use the prompts inside the front and back covers to enjoy the book together and help your child practise blending their sounds to read. It is important that over a week, your child reads 4 times at home.
