Welcome to the Spring term.

Welcome back! We hope you have all had a lovey Christmas and are ready to come back to lots of exciting learning opportunities!

 

 ‘I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.’

J.K. Rowling

This term, we are continuing to ask all children to read for at least five minutes each night and to record it in their reading record. Doing so will help children develop comprehension skills and also help to expand their vocabulary and imagination, reinforcing the work we are doing in school. Please listen to your child read and talk about the book with them, asking questions about what they have read. This will also help them to develop a solid understanding of the text.  We will monitor this weekly to encourage and celebrate good reading habits. Children now receive raffle tickets when they read, and each week a winner is drawn. The lucky winner wins a fantastic book of their choice!

Class 3 have made an excellent start to our ‘Burps, Bottoms and Bile’ topic this half term. We have begun to look at teeth and have looked carefully at how to look after them. Throughout the next half term we will be learning about how the digestive system works, even looking at how poo is made! We will also be making a variety of healthy dishes, and how we can make not so healthy foods better for us. To top it all off, we will even design and create our own healthy snack packs – which we are going to sell at break time!

In order to really celebrate our topic, we have asked the children to create their own project linked to it. The children have the freedom to create anything they wish, using their own unique strengths and skills. A selection of ideas will be sent home to help them get started.

The project is a great opportunity for all children to share their wonderful knowledge on our topic, and to work together to create something to be really proud of.

The children will share their work with the class on Thursday 13th February. They may bring their projects in prior to this if they wish, and they will be added to our interactive display in the classroom.

We cannot wait to see the amazing masterpieces that will be created. Please feel free to come and ask any questions.

Your child will need his/her PE kit in school from Monday to Friday every week. Please ensure that all clothing is named.  PE kits consist of a white t-shirt, navy blue/black shorts and plimsolls.  Along with this, your child will need trainers in school every day and appropriate clothing for the Daily Mile.  During the colder months this might include tracksuit/jogging bottoms and/or sweatshirts. 

We have also signed up to `Times Table Rockstars'. Please encourage your child to access this at home as much as possible.  In doing so, your child will learn times tables quickly whilst having fun.  They will also develop a greater understanding of a range of mathematical concepts.

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Thank you for your continued support.

Miss Dixon and Mrs Carvell.
