This term will hopefully see the brighter weather, which will mean more time in our Wild for Learning Area. On the days we plan to head out to our Outdoor learning area we will let the children know so they can wear their old clothes and bring their welly boots.
Studying London will form the basis of our geography topic this term. If you have ever visited London or have any photographs it would be great if you could share them with us.
After half term we will be studying the Victorians and will be holding a Victorian Day, we ask the boys to wear black trousers and a shirt and for the girls a skirt and a white shirt. The day is always great
fun and offers a glimpse into thechanges in schooling over time.
Guided Reading sessions will focus on developing vocabulary through simple games and guided activities. We will continue our reciprocal reading approach in class. Ask your child about this you can read it to support
reading at home too. This approach means that
the children are learning to read a text with a focus on summarising, questioning, clarifying and predicting to help understanding meaning within a text.
As with last term, daily practice at home of times tables, will really help and give them confidence to tackle complex word problems.
Homework will be handed out on a Friday to be returned on a Thursday. PE will be on a Thursday and a Friday, however, it's always useful to have their PE Kit in school all week just in case things get changed.
We welcome anyone who would like to share an expertise with the children or hear them read, help with maths or get messy with the clay, just come and see us.
Many Thanks and as always if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
Miss Miners (Class Teacher) and Mrs Skinner (Teaching Assistant)
