Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome back to a new school year. It is lovely to see your children's enthusiasm, shiny shoes and new haircuts. I was grateful to see many of you at 'meet the teacher', please do come and say hello if you need to share anything with me, or you have questions, I am ready to listen.
This term, we are exploring the question, 'What are Tectonic plates and how do they affect the world?'. This means lots of exploring about Volcanoes, Fossils, Rocks and how our world changes over time. The topic web shows an overview of this term's teaching and learning. The home learning menu is also available below, much more fun than homework; it's how we encourage you to create, discuss and share learning at home that we can celebrate in school.
This term we have PE on a Monday and a Friday, and Forest school on a Thursday morning. Thank you for organising all the clothing and footwear required, it really helps the children enjoy these activities to the full.
You can help support your child's learning by encouraging spelling, times tables and reading practice. I set spellings every week, for a quiz on Monday. Times tables can be practised on the TT rockstars app (please contact me if the login is lost). A school reading book linked to our Accelerated Reader scheme or Little Wandle is always available. These key skills help children fully access all areas of the curriculum, so your support is really valuable.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do contact the school office and we will help.
I do hope you are all keeping well and staying safe.
With best wishes,
