With the summer holiday having drawn to a close, I would like to welcome you all to a new school year. I hope you will return to school feeling refreshed and ready for the year ahead.
As we begin the Autumn Term, we are looking forward to starting our first topic 'Stone Age - Iron Age Britain'. Our science topics will be Rocks and Soils followed by Fossils and in RE, we will be learning about Creation. Mathematics and English will be taught daily and the children will be encouraged to work hard and challenge themselves. We will be continuing with the All Saints' Reading Challenge and would ask that you listen to your child read at least three times a week and fill in their reading diaries.
Class 3 P.E. days will be Thursdays and Fridays and for the first term, the children will be learning hockey skills and gymnastics. Please ensure that your child has their P.E. kit 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. Trainers are the preferred choice for footwear although plimsolls can be worn. Long hair should be tied back and earrings removed.
Homework will 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. Children will also bring home a set of times tables and should work at learning these, appropriate to the level they are working at. Please support your child in learning these 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 Edgar and Mrs Knight
