Happy New Year and Welcome back!

I hope you have all enjoyed your Christmas Holidays and have managed to rest in preparation for our busy spring term. I just want to say a big Thank you for all of your support that you gave before the Christmas break, working so hard on helping children to learn lines and preparing fantastic costumes.

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 about shapes and their properties, both 2D and 3D ones. In Literacy we will be using the book Meerkat Mail, a story about a young Meerkat who visits different places looking for somewhere else to live. We will explore different text genres such as post cards, letters, factual texts and writing our own stories.

Our Creative Curriculum in the afternoons is a super hero 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.

PE this half term will be taught by Mrs. A Tilley and Mr Roberts on a Wednesday afternoon, so please ensure that your child has their kit with them on this day. Library will continue to be on a Friday afternoon, so children will need to have their books in school on this day to allow them to be changed.

As part of Pine class homework there is an expectation that children will read to parents daily, please note in the planner when books need changing and we will endeavour to change them daily. Pupils need to bring their books and planners in daily and also need a water bottle in class.

If you have any questions or queries please come and see me before or after school in the playground or alternatively email me at hosmendham@wvpschools.org.
