Welcome back everyone, I hope everyone had a fun and chocolate filled Easter break and are all refreshed for the summer term. Our topic is Under the Sea!

We will be learning lots about our oceans and seas in the world and what lives in them. Some of these include locating the World’s oceans and seas, exploring their characteristics and finding out about the different habitats that are in our oceans. We are hoping to create lots of lovely pieces of art linking to our topic.

In Maths this term we will be focusing on measurement and time. Please help your children to practise telling the time at home to reinforce the work done in school.

I’m really excited to be teaching narratives in Literacy, where the children will get the opportunity to write a sea life inspired story. By the end of this term we will be focusing on discussion texts; discussing the pros and cons for keeping whales in captivity. Our class book this term is Michael Morpurgo’s The Sandman and the Turtles.

P.E. will continue to be taught on Mondays, so please make sure your child has their P.E. Kit on this day. We will also be going swimming at Stradbroke on Thursday afternoons (starting 26th April), please make sure our child has their swimming kit.

French and Music will 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 a Tuesday afternoon during our library slot.

As the weather is getting warmer now, please make sure your child comes adequately dressed and prepared for those sunny days with labelled sunscreen and a sun hat as well as their named water bottle for class.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon.
