Welcome back to school. I hope everyone has had an enjoyable Summer holiday. I operate an ‘open door policy’ and will be available briefly each morning to answer any questions or if you would like to talk about anything in private or in more detail then please make an appointment for the end of the school day.
The topic this half term is Dinosaurs. The topic overview can be found below.
We hope the topic will excite your child. If you have any objects, books or information related to dinosaurs and your child would like to share this then please allow them to bring into school.
Spellings; We will be issuing your child with a new set of spellings every Friday. They can be found in your child’s orange spelling book which they will bring home each week. Please take some time to practise with your child. There are lots of fun ideas and activities you could use to help with this (i.e.) air spelling where you write the word in the air; shaving foam on a plate where your child writes the word in shaving foam, writing it on your back, pyramid spelling; this is where you write the word in the shape of a pyramid. If you have bath crayons you could even get your child to write them in the bath!
Homework; Your child will receive a piece of homework fortnightly, which will either be English or maths related. This will be linked to the learning we have been doing in class. Please support and encourage your child to do this. Please ensure it is handed in by the date stated on the homework. Topic homework will handed out half termly.
Reading; Your child will be heard read twice a week. This will be on an individual basis as well as during a Guided Group reading session. Please support your child’s reading development by hearing them read for at least 10 minutes per night at home. There are ideas of questions you could ask your child under the curriculum pages on this website.
PE Days; Please make sure your child’s PE kit remains in school throughout the half term. Our PE days are as follows; Tuesday afternoon with Soccer Stars and a Thursday morning which will be focused on fundamental skills of balance and co-ordination.
After School Clubs; If your child is interested in attending any after school clubs then please see the link on the school website.
Sorry, no news from this class yet, check back soon!.
