As we begin the Spring Term, we are looking forward to starting our local history study - 'Harwich on the map'. Our science topics will be Forces and Magnets followed by Animal nutrition and skeletons and in RE, we will be learning about the Gospel and Salvation. 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 second term, the children will be learning netball and football skills, dance 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.
Spellings will be sent home each Monday and a spelling test will take place each Friday. Children should also continue to learn their times tables. As I write, the first few children, in Year 3, have already achieved their Times Tables Batman Challenge and have moved onto their next challenge. 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 Knight and Mrs Carmichael
