SPRING TERM INFORMATION
Willow Class have worked incredibly hard in the Autumn Term and have remained focus and determined in their learning, always eager to expand their knowledge and do their best. Spring term is shorter but packed full of new learning that I know the children will embrace.
The theme in the Spring term is The Romans! A history based topic that I know the children will love. In Art we will learn about the architect Anselm Kiefer and develop our drawing and sketching skills. We will then move onto sculpture and design and make our own Roman style busts!
In maths we will continue with multiplication and division and then move on to money, measurement and fractions. In English we will be looking at a variety of texts, including ‘Jemmy Button’ by Alix Barzley and we should try and expand our vocabulary knowledge. Reading at home everyday will help with this. Good readers make good writers!
On Thursday, Mrs Leader will continue to teaching the class Science and PE will be daily for 40 minutes with Mr Mason.
Like last term, homework will be set each Monday and must be completed by the Friday of the same week. You can help with homework but please do not do it for your child. Please fill out your child’s reading records when you hear them read each night – if they do not have a book please let me know, the children need to change their own books when they have finished. (Homework is extremely important. Please refer to the Oak View homework policy for more information regarding homework.)
I will always make myself available to discuss your child’s progress and any questions you may have, please do not hesitate to call the office to arrange a telephone call.
Miss Nadia Notarpippo, Miss Woodall and Mrs Weaver.
