     Dear Parents/Carers.

Welcome back to the second half of our spring term. I hope you enjoyed your break and are ready for what is set to be a fabulous term, full of learning.

We will continue with our topic ‘Exploring the land’ and will begin the term with a visit to a local working farm which will link into the work we have been doing on how land is used in our area. 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 to.

In science we will be learning about plants and how they grow.

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

In literacy we will be using ‘talk for writing’ approach and learning to write explanation texts, recounts and poetry.

In numeracy we continue with the mastery approach and will look at perimeter, area and fractions.

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

The children will be swimming on Thursday afternoons this term. Please ensure they have their swimming kit with them each 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
