Dear Parents and Carers,
The children have worked really hard during the Spring Term. There have been lots of changes and the children have taken these in their stride. I am really proud of them!
This coming term is a tough one with the SATs in May but I know all the children will try their hardest to do their best.
This term our topic will be British Isles. In this topic we are learning about what makes up the British Isles and the geography of the British Isles. We will be learning about historical figures key to British history.
In maths we will be learning about measuring, distance and directions and planning journeys across the British Isles using what we have learnt. We will also be learning to tell the time.
In English we will be looking at a variety of texts including Jack and the Baked Beanstalk and The Pirates Next Door. We will also be expanding our vocabulary and focusing on grammar. 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 on Mondays we will continue with the Spanish lessons that the children enjoyed so much last term.
PE will continue to be on a Tuesday and a Wednesday. 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 the end of the half term. Please make sure it is returned to school on the first Monday after half term.
We will also have swimming this term on a Thursday. Please make sure the children bring a named swimming costume and towel to be taken home every week. Please speak to me if you have any concerns about this arrangement.
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.
Maple class 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 and Mrs Jones
