Hello and Welcome back

I hope you have all enjoyed your Christmas Holiday and have created many amazing memories over the festive period. I just want to say a big thank you for coming to support the Christmas Nativity and providing such wonderful costumes. All the children in Oak class really enjoyed learning their lines and dance routines and then performing it to the wonderful audiences.

This next half term is going to be just as busy as the Autumn term was. We have lots to do and lots to learn about over a wide range of areas. In Maths this half term we will be learning how to tell the time, how to recognise and use different coins and notes for money, measuring the height and length of different objects and how to use graphs to record and use different types of data.

In Literacy we will be using the book Zippo the Super Hippo, which will help us to decide what you need to become a superhero. We will also create diary entries that Zippo could have written whilst trying to find his superpower. We will then create our own superhero animal, setting and problems to write our own superhero story.

Our Literacy is linked to our Superhero topic where we will find out all about real life superheroes, such as Jacques Cousteau, Sylvia Earle and Roald Amundsen. We will also be looking at the oceans, and where the North and South Pole are. In Art and DT we will be creating drawing, painting and sculpture superheroes. In Science we will be looking at everyday materials, and completing investigations into what is the best material for different purposes.

This half term we will also be going swimming on a Thursday, so please can you send your child in uniform that is easy for them to take off and put on by themselves. In PE on a Monday Oak class will be learning different types of dance.

Your child needs their diary and water bottle in school every day. Children with hair that can be tied up needs to be tied up every day to keep it from bothering them. 

If you have any questions please catch me in the playground before or after school.
