      Dear Juniper Class and Parents,  

I hope that you have all had a relaxing and peaceful school break and are now looking forward to the autumn term. This term brings with it lots of exciting learning opportunities for the children. Our first topic will be learning about the life and times of the Roman Empire! We will look at the history of the Romans, Boudicca and learn about the Roman invasions and the impact this had on Britain. We will look at what it would have been like to be a Roman solider and the inventions that the Romans introduced to the world. It will provide us with an opportunity to become creative and produce our own art work based around our topic.

In science we will be learning about forces and light.

In R.E will we be looking at Christianity.

In literacy we will continue to use the IPEELL writing approach and this term will see us looking at writing persuasive texts and instructions. In numeracy, we will begin by really getting to grips with the importance of place value, which will also include looking into Roman numerals.

The children will have P.E on Thursday afternoons this term. Please ensure they have their P.E kit and a water bottle every week.

Mrs Galdwin will continue to teach languages and Mrs Koralamb will be teaching music.

Planners- Could you please ensure that you check your child’s planner daily and record any information that we may need to know about. We will check the planners daily so they need to be sent into school every day.

Reading- I feel it is really important that we try and encourage the children to read as often as possible as this can have huge benefits in other areas of their learning. The children are asked to read at home daily so please record in their planners. There are house points to be won if they have recorded their reading at home five times a week!

Homework- Homework will be set each week. A slip will be put into the children’s planners each week with what has been set. Please ensure all completed homework is in by the following Thursday.

Yours sincerely

Mr Sam Norfolk
