Autumn Second Half
Welcome back to school for the second half of the Autumn Term.
The children had fun learning about our topic 'To the Stars' and have created stories, models and art work linked to this. Thank you for the support you gave to two extended Home learning tasks. They also enjoyed the class text 'Millions', which will hopefully inspire them to read work by different authors.
We now look forward to learning about 'The Ancient Greeks'. The highlight of this is likely to be the Greek workshop on the 22nd November. Details of ideas for simple costumes will be sent out soon. These costumes should also be worn for the class assembly.Details and the topic map is attached below.
Before we start on that, the whole school will be taking part in a History week linked to the 100 year anniversary of the end of World war 1.
PE is twice a week – swimming on a Tuesday afternoon and Outdoor Games, Gymnastics or dance on a Wednesday afternoon.Please ensure that your child has an indoor and outdoor PE kit, including training shoes, in school as we will also have the daily mile and outdoor activities linked to our topics. Due to the changeable weather, please also send your child to school with a waterproof coat or jacket.
Home learning will be handed out on Thursdays and is due back on Tuesdays. If your child is struggling to complete any of the home learning tasks, please let us know. There is an ongoing task linked to the topic, so please look out for that.
Reading books and reading records should be in school every day.
Finally, if you have any concerns please ask to see one of us as we want your children to be happy and ready to learn.
