Our topic for the spring term is Space. We will begin by exploring the Solar System and will get involved in lots of creative activities such as marbling and using chalks to create constellations. In English, we will write fact files and write letters to Tim Peake. We will develop our reading skills by using laptops to research facts about our favourite planet. On the 30th January we will be hosting a planetarium in the hall where we will learn all about night and day, the visible night sky and the history of the space race.
On Tuesday mornings, Mrs Stapleton and Miss Barker will be teaching the children.
Children will have PE on a Monday morning and Wednesday afternoon. Please make sure they have a full, named PE kit in school on these days. Jewellery, including earrings, must be removed and long hair should be tied back.
Folders will be sent home on Thursdays and will be due in the following Wednesday.
Please continue to support your child with their reading at home. The expectation is that children read at least 4 times a week at home.
At the beginning of term, the children brought home letters explaining their current learning targets. It is really important that they continue to focus on these targets as it will help them to make good progress this term.
