Dear Parents/Carers.

I hope that you have all had a relaxing and peaceful break and are now looking forward to the spring term. I would first like to thank you all for your kind gifts and cards you sent me before Christmas. It was very kind of you. Thank you.

This term brings with it lots of exciting learning opportunities for the children. Our topic for this term will be ‘Exploring the land’ We will look into the land around us and how it is used as well as looking at land in other parts of the world. We will also look into the lives of some famous explorers and the adventures and voyages they took part in. We will also be heading off on our residential trip to Holt Hall which I am really looking forward too!

In science we will be learning about living things and classification as well as looking at food chains.

In R.E will we be looking at Islam, Buddhism, Sikhism and Judasim.

In literacy we will begin to look at diary entries, explanation texts and adventure stories.

In numeracy we continue with the mastery approach and will begin with looking at multiplication and division.

On Wednesday mornings the children will be having forest schools with Mrs Davies. As the weather remains cold, please make sure your child has got some warm/waterproof clothes and wellies with them.

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 Gladwin will continue to teach languages and Mrs Koralambe 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
