We hope you have all had a restful and enjoyable Easter break.
As we begin the summer term, we are looking forward to starting our new topic 'The Great Outdoors'. Science topics will be Light and Shadows followed by Plants and we will be extending this learning into our art work. In geography, we will be undertaking a local study of Harwich. Mathematics and English will be taught daily and the children will be encouraged to work hard to improve their handwriting and take a pride in the presentation of their work. In R.E. we will be learning about Pentecost.
Class 3 P.E. days will be Mondays and Wednesdays and for the first half term, the children will be going to the pool, on Wednesdays, for swimming lessons. Please ensure that children have their swimming or P.E. kits in school on these days. It would be useful if children could have a pair of jogging trousers and a top in their P.E. bags to wear during outdoor lessons. Long hair should be tied back and earrings removed.
Homework will continue to be set, weekly, on the 'active learn' website. Please support your child in completing this homework. Spellings will be sent home each Monday and a spelling test will take place each Friday. Please also continue to support your child in learning their times tables as this will help them, enormously, in day to day maths lessons.
We look forward to working with you during the term ahead.
Miss Smith, Mrs Smith and Mrs Carmichael
