We have had a great start to the year! The children are eager to learn and looking forward to our topic on ‘Paws, claws and Whiskers’. I have attached a topic plan so that you can see what we will be doing. If you have any books relating to animals that you don’t mind sharing with the children please feel free to send them in. These can be factual books or stories. Please name them so I can ensure they are returned at the end of the topic. If you have any dinosaur toys these can be brought on a Friday.
The children have brought home new reading books and diaries. Please can you make sure these come into school every day as their individual reading days will vary. They will also read in a group once a week and diaries are needed for this too. It is important that children continue to read to an adult at home for ten minutes every day and this too should be noted in their diaries.
Spellings have been sent home for next week and they will be tested on a Friday. The best way to learn them is to do a few minutes spelling each day. I will send home some strategies for learning spellings next week.
Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday. Please make sure your child has a kit in school and remove earrings for them before school on PE days.
Maths homework will begin later and this will be linked to what we have been learning in class.
I am really looking forward to teaching the children this term.
If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to ask. I am always available at the end of the day.
We have visited St Oswald’s Church and we took part in Experience Christmas.
