Cedar Class

Spring Term Information

Dear Parents,

We hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your families and that your children are feeling rested and excited to get back to school!

This term our Topic will be toys. We will be exploring how toys have changed over time and the similarities and differences between toys now and toys in victorian times and during the childhood of our parents and carers.

In English our fiction story will be Paper Planes. We will be creating our own stories about friendship and writing messages to friends far away.

In Maths we are looking at addition and subtraction to 20. To help with this, please continue to practice counting at home, as well as number bonds to 10 and 20 (10+10=20, 5+5=10).

PE will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please send your child in in their school uniform. We recommend bringing in your child’s PE kit on a Monday and taking it home on a Friday so if they need it at any point in the week extra it is already at school. Please make sure that all PE kit is named.

Homework will be sent home on a Monday and needs to be returned and completed to a good standard, on the Friday of the same week. Homework will consist of either an English or Maths. Please do support your child with their homework, as this will help their learning enormously (but please don’t do it for them!).

Please also regularly read with your child at home. Your child is given two books per week, one on Monday which they will be reading during their phonics lessons and one at the end of the week with a different storyline but the same sounds which they are learning. Please write in your children’s records when they read and  feel free to read other books from home or the library in Winsford as well. If you have any problems or concerns with reading with your child then please do let us know.

Each day your child needs to bring in:

  • Their book bag
  • Reading record and book
  • Water bottle

We hope that this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to come and speak to us if you need any more information or have any questions.

Many thanks,

Miss Steadman and Miss Simpson.
