Welcome back after the Christmas break.
Hope you have had a good rest and are safe and well.
As well as all our lovely children, we welcome Miss Gentili, whilst Miss Jones continues to support the class, with music and PE being taught by Mrs Clark and Mr Fielder.
Please only send your child to school with the following: a drink bottle (which needs to be taken home regularly and cleaned), coat and lunch bag. if bringing a packed lunch.
Although we are unable at present to welcome parents into the classroom, please continue to use the ‘messages’ section on Class Dojo if there is anything you want me to know. I will check these as quickly as I can. For urgent messages, please let the office know.
PE will be on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Children should come to school wearing their PE kit and trainers.
Please find the home learning booklet here. The children will also be given a paper copy, and a list of spellings, to take home on Thursday 5th October. For the first week, children should use the booklet from last half term.
Children should post a photo into their portfolio of one of the ways they have practised their spellings and the tick list for reading and times tables by the Thursday of each week. They can also choose an additional activity from the booklet if they wish. It is easier for me to give proper feedback if photos are just of the work and are as close up as possible.
Children can choose a reading book to take home. These can be returned, when finished, on a Monday morning. They can then be quarantined before returning them to the bookshelf for children to choose from.
We have more exciting things to learn:
We will be learning about the Romans in history, famous inventors in science and we will be looking at Anthony Browne's 'Into The Forest' for English. In maths, we will be learning about perimeter and area, multiplication of larger numbers and measurement.
It is expected that children will know all of the times tables to 12 x 12, this term. They need to know these 'by heart' and not by counting on fingers. Please help your child to practise these at home.
Have a look at the curriculum bulletin attached for more information.
