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 on a Tuesday. 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.  If they do have any clubs or activities where they are using their PE kits please make sure it’s back in school as soon as possible as we are sometimes able to have additional sessions, particularly in the run up to Sports Day

Swimming starts on Friday 4th May. Children will be assessed during the first session and put into groups suitable for their ability. If you are able to accompany us please let me know. You will need to have been DBS checked though the school.

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.
