Dear Children, Parents and Carers,
Welcome back. I hope you all had a happy and peaceful Christmas and wish you all the best for 2017.
The children have all settled back into school routines really well, getting stuck into our work straight away. Our class topic for this half term is based around Fire – looking at dragons, castles, the great Fire of London and the Fire of Nantwich. We have started off reading a range of dragon stories and poetry. They’ve created their own dragons that I hope will lead to some great writing this week.
In maths we have been using money to help with adding and subtracting multiples of ten. We will be working with money for a few weeks now, finding different ways to find total amounts and calculating change. If you could let them pay for items when you’re out shopping that would be great!
In our science lessons this term we will be learning about what fire needs to be able to burn and plants – looking at the different parts of aplant and whatthey need to survive.
Reading – Reading daily to an adult is so important at this stage of their development. Even if they have mastered the mechanics of reading, continuing to read a range of books will help them across the whole curriculum. Please can you encourage your child to read to an adult daily at home. This can include reading to younger siblings, reading recipes, instructions, fiction and non- fiction so please just make a note in their diaries to show what they have been reading. In class they are encouraged to start to read independently during registration and will read in a group with me once a week.
PE – this is still on a Tuesday. Please make sure they have a full kit in school all week.
Outdoor learning this term is going to be based around gardening. It is once a fortnight on a FRIDAY. The dates for this half term are 20th Jan, 3rd and 17th Feb. Please make sure your children come into school in suitable outdoor clothing on those dates and have waterproofs and suitable footwear. If any parents or grandparents could help on those dates that would be great. Please let me know.
Our residential visit to Beeston is later this year in the Summer term (2nd May). You will be invited to a meeting to discuss the trip nearer to the date. This term we will be going on a couple of local visits too.
If any of you or any grandparents can spare a few minutes (or hours) a week to hear children read, garden, sew, bake it would be really appreciated. Even if it was just from 8.45-9.00 a couple of times a week. Please contact me if you are able to help.
Please catch me at drop-off, collection or email if you need to contact me.
