Dear Children, Parents and Carers,
Welcome back. I hope you all had a lovely chocolate filled Easter break.
I'm really looking forward to our class topic for this half term. It is based around Fantastic Mr Fox which will give us lots of opportunities to get stuck into some Roald Dahl books – which will hopefully inspire us to write some great descriptive writing of our own. We will start off looking at some of the main characters as there are some interesting individuals to discuss!
In maths we will be recapping the four rules (+-x÷), thinking about how they are connected and how we can check our work by using the inverse operation (using addition to check subtraction etc).
Our science lessons will link with the woodland creatures featured in the book as we look at animals habitats and how they adapt to their surroundings.
Reading – Reading daily to an adult is so important at this stage of your child's 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 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 now on a Wednesday. Please make sure they have a full kit in school all week, including pumps or trainers that fit and socks for the girls if they are wearing tights.
Outdoor learning this term is continuing with our gardening. It is once a fortnight on a FRIDAY. The dates for this half term are 28th April, 12th and 26th May. 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 please let me know.
We will be swimming on a Friday afternoon after May half-term. More details to follow.
Our residential visit to Beeston is on 2nd May. You are invited to a brief meeting to discuss the trip on Tuesday 25th April at 3.15. This is just to give you a quick outline of the trip and to answer any questions you may have. If you aren't able to attend please just email me with any questions you my have. This term we will also be going on a couple of local visits too.
We have a small sewing project to complete this term. If any parents or grandparents are able to come in and assist with this it would be really helpful. Please let me know.
Please catch me at drop-off, collection or email if you need to contact me.
