Welcome to the new 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!

This half term our topic is 'potions'. Again, we are going asking children to complete a project, linked with this topic, which will be presented at the end of the half term. A letter will be sent out to explain what is required.  The quality of work produced so far in previous topics has been absolutely outstanding. We cannot wait to see what you make next!

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, Mrs Carvell and Miss Clennan.
