Welcome back after half term, I hope everyone enjoyed a much earned rest! This term is always an exciting one with Halloween, Bonfire night and the run up to Christmas.

We are continuing our topic which is Stone Age to Iron Age; this will be taught by Mrs Tilley on Thursdays but will intertwine with our other subjects.

For Literacy, we will be writing instructions on how to wash a woolly mammoth, an information text on prehistoric life and some Christmas poetry. Guided reading will be taught daily and spelling and handwriting will be taught every other day.

In Numeracy we will be carrying on with our learning on addition and subtraction and later we will move on to multiplication and division. I hope everyone has had the opportunity to play Times Tables Rock Stars outside of school as it is a great learning platform. The children love it in School.

 Science will continue to be taught on a Monday and we are carrying on our topic of Rocks and Soils. If there is a parent or grandparent that would like to come in and share their expertise or interests on this topic we would love to see you.

Mrs Nightingale will teach Art/ DT on Tuesday afternoons which will link in with our Stone Age topic.

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 and the nativity story.

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 15 and 20 minutes an evening. We have some new math games that have kindly been donated to us by the HSA, please can I remind you to look after them and try to make sure pieces don’t go missing.

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.

Mrs Helen Varela
