Spring 1st Half Term
Happy New Year to all and here is hoping that 2018 is a happy and healthy one.
I hope you enjoyed the Key Stage 2 Carol Concert-the children were fantastic and seemed to thoroughly enjoy performing. I am sure the kazoos have given you hours of pleasure.
Thank you for all the good wishes and presents, which are greatly appreciated.
We now look forward to a busy term with our topic, which has been renamed ‘It’s a Mystery’. The children will be finding out about life in 17th Century London, as well learning about the changes to London since then. They will also give their opinion on the topic name. Please look at the topic map below which gives an overview of coverage this half-term.
We will have PE on a Tuesday and a Thursday so please ensure that indoor and outdoor kits are provided, and that all items of clothing are named. We will continue to aim for a daily run, or indoor aerobic activity-children will need kits in school each day.
Home Learning will continue to be sent out on a Thursday, to be completed and in school by the following Tuesday. Please look for changes to the expectations for spelling in the first Home Learning task set.
As always, please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions or concerns.
Christmas is Coming
The children have had a busy half-term learning about the Greeks, including taking part in the workshop. This was a very enjoyable and informative experience and we are delighted to share that the leader, Dan, was very impressed with the behaviour of the children. When you visit the class, hopefully on Friday, please take time to view the photographs on display.
In mathematics the children have been learning methods of multiplication and will be applying this understanding to division methods.Please continue to support your child to practise times tables facts.
Well done to the children who took part in Bikeability training, particularly in some very cold conditions. I am sure that they are now very aware of the importance of safety on the roads.
The children have been rehearsing for the KS2 Carol Concert and are looking forward to performing in front of an audienceon Monday 18th December.
As you are aware, the Christmas Fair is on Friday 8th December 3.15-4.00 p.m. Class 5 will be selling limited edition Christmas tree decorations so be sure to visit the classroom early to avoid disappointment.
As always, your support is appreciated.
