January newsletter

Welcome back to the new year- I hope you enjoyed the break and the children are refreshed and ready to learn.  Later this half term we will be joined by a student teacher, Miss Searby, who will be working within our class 2 days a week.

 

Curriculum: This term we will be starting our topic on Ancient Greece; in Science our topic is properties of materials.  In RE we will be learning about the beliefs and practices of Buddhists and in French we will be learning about sports and hobbies.  In Art we will sketching still life using different media.  In Computing we will be learning how to code using software called ‘Scratch’ which is free and can be downloaded at home for them to use if they wish to.

 

PE: Our PE lessons continue to be on a Tuesday afternoon and a Friday morning.  Please ensure your child has the correct labelled clothing in school on these days.

 

Homework: It will continue to be set on a Friday and due in the following Wednesday.  It will generally be based on what we have been learning in class.  Please encourage your child to complete and hand their homework in on time.  If they are unsure they can ask for help at school.  I have also included a science activity for them to complete over the next 5 weeks.

Personalised spellings have been very successful this last half term and will continue in the same format this term- thank you for your ongoing support with this.  Their home spelling books need to be in school every Thursday for new spellings to be set on Fridays.

 

In the opera project the children have begun to learn the songs and staging for act 2.  The final performances are the beginning of February.  Don’t forget to get your tickets and book a place on the coach in plenty of time.

 

If you have any questions please leave a message with Mrs Butt or see me after school on a Monday, Thursday or Friday,

Thank you,

Miss Rhodes

Come and join us

I’d love to see as many of you as possible on Friday for our Maths lesson and a chance to chat about the curriculum.  A letter came home today with more information.  Please return the slip at the bottom so I know how many biscuits to buy!

I appreciate it may be difficult if you are working or have young children and information about the curriculum will be sent home on Friday for those of you who cannot make it.

Opera rehearsals

The children were very well behaved today as they listened to all of Act one and joined in with their part at the end.  They sang with real enthusiasm into the afternoon too- Well done Starfish, I am proud of you.

Poetry readings

The children have been learning the poem ‘Leisure’ this week:

then worked in groups to perform it aloud using expression.  We followed this up in the afternoon by visiting the beach to see what we could see, hear, smell and feel to write our own versions based on the beach rather than a field.
