Dear Parents and Carers,
Maple class have worked very hard throughout the Autumn Term and have shown me their determination and focus in their learning. This coming term is shorter but will still be packed full of new learning and challenges that I know the children will overcome!
This term our topic will be Amazing Me. In this topic we will be learning about being healthy and what we can do to make sure we are making healthy choices. In Design and Technology we will be looking at healthy foods and things we can make with healthy ingredients. To continue the topic we will be learning about Animals including Humans in science which will include learning about the differences between males and females and naming body parts.
In maths we will continue with multiplication and division before moving onto statistics, geometry, fractions and measurement.
In English we will be looking at a variety of texts including Meerkat Mail and Rumpelstiltskin. We will also be expanding our vocabulary and focusing on spellings. Reading at home every day will really help this. Please make sure you fill in the reading record when you hear your child read each night. Good readers make better writers!
On Wednesday Mrs Millington will continue to teach in the mornings and we will continue with the Spanish lessons that the children enjoyed so much last term.
PE will continue to be on a Tuesday. Please make sure the children have their full PE kit (named) including hoodie, jogging bottoms and suitable footwear. This needs to be brought in on the first day of term and taken home to be washed at half term. Please make sure it is returned to school on the first Monday after half term.
Homework will be given out on a Monday and must be completed by the Friday of the same week. Please help your children with their homework but don’t do it for them.
The Maple team are always available to discuss your child’s progress and any other questions you might have. Please do not hesitate to speak to us at the end of the day or arrange another time to meet that is more suitable.
Miss Dunmore, Mrs Jones and Miss Tench
