Dear Parents/Carers.

I hope that you have all had a lovely festive break and enjoyed a restful few weeks! Thank you all for your kind gifts they were very much appreciated.

I am looking forward to this term as we begin our topic which is ‘Who were the Mayans?’ This will be an exciting topic and we will look into finding out this ancient civilisation. We will look at their lives and why they were such a significant civilisation.

In science we will begin with looking at forces and properties and change of materials.

In R.E will we be looking at Hinduism and Judaism.

In literacy we will be creating atmosphere in short narratives, information texts and poetry.

In numeracy we continue with the mastery approach and will look at ratios and percentages.

The children will have P.E on Thursday afternoons for this term. Please ensure they have their P.E kit and a water bottle every day.

Mrs Gladwin will continue to teach languages.

Music will be taught by the class teachers.

I will also be holding a club after school on a Wednesday for year 6 pupils to attend as a SATS club to help them prepare.

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- Children will continue to have regular spellings and times tables sent home for homework each week.

 Please ensure your child brings a water bottle into school every day and has appropriate clothing for the weather.

If you need any other information then please feel free to contact me at school or via my email below.

Yours sincerely

Mr Sam Norfolk
