I can hardly believe that we are in the Summer Term already! We have lots to look forward to and I am particularly excited about our new topic of 'Space'. This topic will form part of our history, geography, art and design and technology lessons. Our science topics will be Light and Shadows followed by The Growth of Plants and in RE, we will be learning about the Kingdom of God and Muhammad and the Qur'an. Mathematics and English will be taught daily and the children will be encouraged to work hard and challenge themselves. I am hoping that the children will continue to be successful 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. It really does help them to make rapid progress in their reading.
Class 3 P.E. days will still be Thursdays and Fridays and we are looking forward to starting swimming lessons from Thursday 19th April. Please ensure that your child has their P.E. kit or swimming 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. I am very pleased to report that more and more children are being successful with the Times Tables Challenge and we will continue to work hard at this during the Summer Term. Please support your child in learning these as this will help them, enormously, in day to day maths lessons.
We look forward to a busy but happy term ahead.
