Spring Term 2019

Curriculum

During the first half term the whole school theme is ‘Diggin’ It’. We will be learning all about The Great Fire of London in English and History by looking at lots of non-fiction and fiction books in English. The children will be writing diaries and letters.  After half-term, the whole school theme is ‘Picture This’. There will be a focus in English on traditional tales and altering them in our own creative ways. In Maths across the Spring term we will be looking at multiplication, division, geometry, fractions and aspects of measure. Feeding and Exercise and Growing Plants will be our focus in Science.

P.E. and Uniform

Our class P.E. lesson this term will be on a Thursday. Your child can leave their PE kit in class and they will bring it home at half term to be washed. Your child will need a t-shirt, shorts, socks, a warm tracksuit and suitable footwear for PE. Please see the school website for more details. We endeavour to ensure that kit and uniform is not lost but do remember that named clothes are a lot more likely to be returned if they do go walkabout! Please label all of your child’s clothes.

Times Tables

There will be opportunities for children to gain mini superhero certificates for reciting a times table and rapid recall of unordered facts.

Reading

We will continue to encourage children to read 5 to 7 times a week and of course the children love working their way through the gemstone certificates.  Some children may begin to read to themselves, which is great, but do remember that reading aloud to an adult every day continues to be extremely beneficial as well as sharing books together.  Please write all of their reads in the reading record – we love to chat to the children about what they are reading for interest at home.

Letters

Just a reminder that children’s bags are not checked for letters by adults.  Therefore please ensure that any reply slips or letter are given either directly to the office or given to an adult in the class by hand at the door.  We would also like to remind you to sign up to SchoolPing as this is the method that we use to send out correspondence and notifications.

Water bottles

Please send in a labelled water bottle with your child every day.  This should contain only water, unless a specific medical need has been discussed with the school.  We know it is cold but children do need water to keep their brain chugging on through the lessons!
