Our Christmas party is on Monday 17th December. The children should have brought home a list of food to bring in for party food and also items for the decorating a table competition. If you have any questions about this, please pop in and ask us!
Science fiction unit
Your child should have brought home a letter on Tuesday 13th December about our science fiction unit of work. As a stimulus for this unit, we will be watching ET next week. If the permission slip is not returned to school this week, your child will unfortunately not be able to watch the film. Please return these promptly so that your child does not miss out - they are very excited when talking about it in class! If you have not received the letter, we have attached a copy below.
Parents are also invited in to school at 3pm on Tuesday 8th December to share and discuss appropriate science fiction toys, books and films with the children. Any items brought in by the children on that day need to be clearly labelled with the child's name and class and should not be expensive or precious to you or child just in case of any possible problem. It would be lovely to see parents coming along to support the children with their learning!
We are very excited to use our new website - we hope that you enjoy using it!
This term we will be learning:
PE days: We will not have any swimming lessons this half term. Indoor and outdoor PE lessons are subject to change and as such, you MUST have indoor and outdoor PE kits in school at all times.
Homework and spellings:
Each week, children will be given a piece of mathematics or English homework. This homework includes learning spellings.
Learning logs will be given out on Friday 2nd November. Please note that you are expected to complete two of these as a minimum but that you can choose to do more if you wish. These tasks are intended to be broad so that you can interpret them as creatively as you wish. We had some super ones last half term and would love to be able to take some photographs of the ones completed this half term to show you all!
Reading remains a key priority and we expect to see reading diaries signed at least four times each week. The reading challenge remains the key part of the homework.
