What a busy half term we have had and a great start to 2023! I hope that you and the children have a wonderful holiday and a well-deserved rest.
Next half term begins on Monday 27th February. That week we will be celebrating World Book Day on Wednesday 1st March. The children can come to school in their own clothes or dress up as a book character. We will have a day exploring our love of reading together.
HOME- Our new whole school topic
After half term we will begin our new whole school topic- Home. This has been planned around the theme of the importance of our homes to us and the human conflicts and natural disasters that result in homelessness for others. We are hoping to use photographs of our children’s homes as part of our displays. If you would like to, please send or e-mail a photo/copy of your home into school after half term. Thank you.
In Maths, we will be solving addition and subtraction problems and exploring a variety of methods to do this. In Writing, we will continue to read our new story ‘The Dragon Machine’. We will be exploring the characters and key events using conjunctions, adverbs and adjectives to write letters to Mrs Powell telling her about the chaos that the dragons are causing in our room.
In RE we will continue our learning about Judaism, in particular the importance of the 10 Commandments and the key parts of a synagogue.
Thank you for your continued support with home reading and times tables.
We have an exciting term ahead, especially with our upcoming residential to Fox Howl.
Have a lovely holiday
Mrs Rice and Mrs Southern
