Dear Parents,                                                                            

Happy New Year to you all! I can’t believe that we are already 3 weeks into our new term! I would just like to thank you all again for your continued support, your Christmas gifts, cards and wishes were a wonderful surprise!

I would like to also thank you all for the incredible support you showed towards the children supporting our Enterprise Fortnight. The children learnt so much from the whole experience and the sale made a staggering profit. We will give you more information about what the money will be spent on in due course.

In Rowan class this term we are studying the Victorians.  So far we have looked at different people who were influential during the Victorian period, in particular Florence Nightingale, Isambard Kingdom Brunel and Queen Victoria. We are also linking our topic to our literacy work, where we will be writing recounts, biographies and newspaper reports. Our Literacy lessons will continue to use the writing project IPEELL strategy as well as working on grammatical terms in our spelling and grammar lessons.

We have been working very hard on Fractions so far this term and have already cracked equivalent fractions and have increased our understanding of this topic. We are using lots of concrete resources to embed our understanding and are having fun in the process!

In Science we will be studying light and electricity. So far, we have looked at circuit diagrams and how to build circuits and will be moving onto looking at how electricity and lighting has evolved, particularly around the Victorian period. In RE we will be examining the religion of Judaism, and in particular beliefs and questions this religion poses.

PE will be taught on a Tuesday by Mrs A. Tilley, but please ensure that your child has a PE Kit in school all week.  Just a reminder that we do expect a full P.E. kit to contain clothing suitable for outside P.E. too.  Mrs Gladwin will teach Latin to Year 6 on a Friday.  This half term Mrs Varella will be teaching Music to Rowan class. .

Planners – will be checked every Friday morning.  We expect Planners to be signed for that week when we check them each Friday morning.  We will sign them too.I have been very impressed with the amount of homework which has come into me so far this term – the standard has also been very high. Just a reminder that homework should be handed in by Tuesday morning at the latest. The children seem to be responding well to the homework booklets. I am to mark each set of homework so that it can be handed back on a Tuesday afternoon.

Study Club for Year 6’s will start on Wednesday the 24th of January, straight after school.

Many thanks for your continued support,

Yours sincerely,

Miss Kate Purling
