Hello everyone, I hope you have all been able to recharge those batteries over half term ready for some more great learning! This term we will be continuing our topic of the Wild West investigating who the Native Americans were and their beliefs, what life was like on the Great Plains and who the cowboys were. For Literacy we will be focusing on the book, The Indian in the cupboard and in Maths we will be learning about Addition and Subtraction. Our Science, D.T., Art and R.E. will also be linked to our Wild West topic, where we will make tipis, do some cowboy cooking, make totem poles and find out about the beliefs of the Native Americans.

P.E. will be taught on Mondays, so please make sure your child has their P.E. Kit on this day.

French and Music will continue to be taught on Wednesdays, so if your child plays an instrument please make sure they bring it in.

Library books and Maths games will be changed on Friday afternoons during our Library slot.

As it is getting colder, with winter on its way, please make sure your child has a waterproof coat and suitable shoes every day and that they have a named water bottle in class.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon.

Mrs Varela
