Welcome to Spring term! Our topic this term is...
'Famous People Who Changed the World'
Our main focus this term is History. The children will be learning about Isaac Newton, Alexander Graham Bell, Hans Christian Anderson and Florence Nightingale. They will be exploring their discoveries, inventions, literature and legacies cross curricular with other subjects.
Please read the latest newsletter to find out what is happening in the rest of the curriculum.
Learning challenge week - October 2019
The children were visited by Professor Diamond who performed a Punch and Judy show for the children. The children had lots of fun watching the show and they also had a special treat of watching a Flea Circus.
The children then made their own Punch and Judy puppets in Design and Technology and used them to make their own puppet show.

Please ensure that children have the correct P.E kit in school and that earrings are removed on these days. We will send PE kits home to be washed at the end of each half term.
Spellings and Homework
Spellings will be sent home once a week and tested the following week. It is very important that children continue to practise spellings on a regular basis to improve their spelling in their everyday writing. To help support learning spellings, we have suggested to children they use the technique of Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check.

Reading is an essential part of your child's learning experience. We would like for the children to read at least three times a week. Your child will take home with them a reading band book and a library book. Children have also been given to the chance to take part in the reading challenge. They will have a class book and an activity list to complete once they have finished reading.
If you do have any concerns or just want to have a chat, we are available at the end of the day for you to speak to. If you wish to discuss something further about your child please make an appointment with the school office.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your future support over the year!
