This term we are using WOW questions instead of topic titles to help promote the children’s curiosity! Linked to Religious Education, the question is, ‘What symbols do people use to represent Jesus?’.
To give the learning real meaning we are hopefully going to have someone in from the church to explain the meaning of Advent and the Christmas Story, watch this space!
At the bottom of the page is a link to the new topic web, please click it to find out what we are doing in all the areas! If you have any books or photographs to support the topic please feel free to send them in.
P.E. is on Thursday. Please remember it is a plain white t-shirt and black or navy blue shorts. No football kit please.
Thank you to all the children and parents who complete the homework set, to the highest of standards, it is a pleasure to mark it. Look out for mini-certificates in the books!
Homework is given on the Thursday and returned by the latest the following Thursday. There is a homework book for you to use, and in the back there are some resources to help you build on maths, reading and spelling skills. If there are any issues with resources such as; glue, coloured paper etc. please ask and we will see what we can do!
Reading is so crucial to your child’s development, so please read as often as you can around your busy schedules. Keep up all the fantastic work you are doing with your child because as you now know the expectations are so much more than before.
Please keep practising times tables with your child as this will help them enormously in their school work. Also encourage your child to read and tell the time please as this is a skill that needs lots of repeating.
If you have any questions or need to speak to me for any other reason, please come and see me at the end of the day. I will either be able to answer your questions there and then, or will be able to make an appointment to talk at a more convenient time.
Mrs Payne, Mrs Smith, Mrs Gray and Mrs Baker
