Wednesday

*PE with coach 

Homework given out

Friday Reading raffle drawn

 PE Requirements:

*Please tie long hair back and either apply tape to earrings or take them out. 

Please have outdoor PE kit available on Thursdays as we will be outside as much as possible. Correct PE kit includes white T Shirt (or a House colour one) and black shorts, white socks and trainers. If it is cold, children can wear black jogging bottoms and a sweatshirt or jumper to stay warm. 

Topics Covered this Term: 

We will be focusing on our recovery curriculum the first part of this term. This means a higher concentration of reading opportunities, writing for real purposes and revisiting Year 2 Maths topics to ensure we try and fill gaps before racing ahead too quickly. Therefore topic sessions will be taught as cross curricular, via other core subject. Initially, we will begin to look at a book called 'Here we are' and link it to our appreciation of the world around us. We will also discuss how important it is to protect our world, covering our Stewardship Value in caring for God's World. Later in the term we will be focusing our learning on the history of the Iron age to the Stone age. We will look at how people lived and how things changed over time. We will also learn how this fits in to the wider picture of British history. 

Any extra learning or research you can undertake with your child at home will help them in their learning at school.  

Other Relevant Information:

It is very important that you read with your child at home as often as possible. Please make sure you comment and sign your child's reading record whenever you read with them. They need to bring their book to school every day, and especially on the days that we conduct our reading raffle. Similarly, your child needs to know their times tables (including division facts) by the end of Year 4, for new Government testing arrangements. Therefore, we are promoting learning our tables in class every week, as this will help them immensely, not only for when they are in Year 4, but also in their everyday maths. Please support us in helping them learn these at home regularly.
