Dear Parents,


It’s so nice to see so many new faces at the beginning of this academic year. I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing summer.


As many of you know I was on maternity leave last year and I have returned to work part time. I will be teaching all day Monday and Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday mornings. I am eager to be back in the classroom and look forward to the exciting year ahead.


Our topic this term is Stone Age to Iron Age; this will be taught by Mrs Tilley on Thursdays but will intertwine with our other subjects. In Literacy this term the children will be writing their manifestos for School council, a narrative based on Stone Age boy and some Harvest poetry.


Numeracy this term will be focusing on Place Value and Addition and Subtraction.


I will be teaching Science on a Monday focusing on Rocks and Soils, we will learn about different types of rocks, fossils and soil formation.


Mrs Nightingale will teach Art and DT on a Tuesday, the children will create cave art, make Stone Age necklaces and build a biscuit Stone Henge.


P.E. is taught by Mr Hopkinson on Wednesdays; please make sure your child has their P.E. Kit at school for this day.


Last but not least Mrs Gladwin will be teaching French and R.E. on a Friday afternoon where the children will be learning about Christianity.


Homework will be set on a Monday and due in on a Friday, this will mostly include spellings, maths games and reading and children are expected to do between 10 to 15 minutes an evening.


If you have any queries or concerns please do not hesitate to come and talk to me, I am available every morning in the playground and on a Monday afternoon. Alternatively, my email address is hvarela@wvpschools.org.


Mrs Helen Varela
