Welcome back to the Spring Term.
If you haven’t yet heard the news we are very excited to announce that two very strange eggs have been delivered to school. We think the eggs might be dragons’ eggs so we are keeping a very careful eye on our new arrivals.
Due to the arrival of the eggs in Science we are investigating what makes something living and what are the difference between; living, non-living and never alive. We will also be learning about what all living things need to stay alive. As we move more into Spring we will learn about life cycles and staying healthy.
Our topic is Creak Crack Crash. Our English work will be focused around this and we will be using rich texts to navigate us through this topic. We have started by reading and enjoying The Egg by M.P. Robertson.
We will continue to develop our skills and reasoning in Maths. The 4 operations are always a focus but we will also be learning about money, time, measures and shape… it will be a busy term!
Please can I take this opportunity to remind you that children are allowed water bottles in the classroom so they can freely access their water but please can these have non-spill lids.
Well done to the many children who are consistently in the reading raffle for reading three times a week. We do ask that you read with your child a minimum of three times a week, not only does this let you see how hard they are working in their phonics but also it develops their love of reading and broadens their vocabulary – it really is invaluable.
A final thank you to all children and parents who now always say goodbye at the pencil fence or before. I know mornings can be tricky but it really is good for developing their independence and there are always plenty of staff to help and encourage them in.
‘It is okay to not know but it is not okay to not try.’
Please see below for this term's class overview and if you have any question do please come and see me - ideally at the end of the school day unless it is really important in which case from 8.45 but please do be aware at this time I will be with children!
