It's the summer term already and to help us get in to the mood, our topic for the summer term will be ‘Exploring Brazil'. We will begin the topic by finding out where Brazil is located and what the country is like. We will be looking at what makes it such a popular destination to visit, experiencing the carnival feels for ourselves. This topic will form part of our geography, history, art, music and dance lessons. Mathematics and English will continue to be taught daily and we will continue to develop our skills and knowledge.
Children will have PE on Monday and Friday afternoon where they will be developing their dance and cricket skills. Children need to make sure they have a full PE kit in school on this day. Please make sure their PE kit has their name in it. Jewellery, including earrings, must be removed and long hair should be tied back.
The All Saints reading challenge is an opportunity for children to earn certificates for reading in school and at home. The more the children read, the more certificates they can receive. It is really important to encourage reading to be done as often as possible at home. Although the children do not have to read to an adult, an adult will need to sign their records to say they have seen them reading. Children will need to ensure their reading records are in school every day.
Spellings will continue to be sent home each Monday and a spelling test will take place on the Friday. Now that we are in the summer term, there should be an extra push to ensure these are being learnt at home as well as at school. This will allow the children to use these spellings during their learning and will help them a great deal.
We look forward to a busy but fun filled term ahead.
Miss Barber, Mrs Lambert and Miss Barker.
