Welcome back. Its lovely to see how well the children have settled back into school. They have made a great start to the Autumn term. We have already begun learning about our new topics. These include:
English - Narrative writing based on the book 'Journey', Direct speech, word classes and Haiku poems
Maths - Number and place value to 10,000. Adding and subtracting 4 digit numbers, multiplication and division, Area and times tables
History - Ancient Greece, Greek life, their influence on the Western World
Geography - Locate and name European countries and their capitals
Science - States of Matter
RE - Big question - Why are festivals important to religious communities?
Art - Pastel drawings and clay work
DT - Food technology
PSHE - Growth Mindset
SMSC - British Values
PE - Swimming and multi-skills
Computing - Databases
French - Recapping greetings, colours and numbers
We have planned lots of exciting lessons and we are sure the children are going to thoroughly enjoy learning all of the above.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher.
English homework (Spellings and SPAG) is given out every Tuesday to be handed in by the following Monday.
Maths homework is given out every Friday to be handed in by the following Thursday. Maths homework is marked within the maths lesson on a Thursday.
Children will have the opportunity to change their reading books every week. We do not expect children to have finished and therefore need to change their reading book every time - especially chapter books. Please sign their yellow reading records on a regular basis so we are able to monitor the children's reading. Please also record any other books they are reading in their yellow reading books as it is really important we are aware of all the books the children are reading (such as library books, books from home etc).
Our library day is also Wednesday. Each week children will have the opportunity to return their old library book and choose another one. Again, if the children haven't finished their library book by Wednesday, there is no expectation for them to change it each week.
Outdoor PE with Mr Dixon is on a Tuesday morning/afternoom. During the Autumn and Winter months, children should wear navy or black jogging bottoms, a white or House colour (red - Lancaster, blue - York, green - Derby and yellow - Chester) with a navy or black hoodie or sweatshirt. Trainers are also required for outdoor PE.
Getting in touch:
If you need to let your child's teacher know general information such as they are being picked up by a Grandparent etc, then a note is the easiest way to do this.
If you would let to arrange a meeting or phone call with your child's teacher then this can be done via the school office. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
