We have already been busy applying our maths skills through maths activities.

We have lots more exciting things planned for this term.

In English we will be looking at stories from imaginary worlds, including myths and legends.  This half term we will be focusing on comprehension during our weekly guided reading sessions, as well as having a big push on spelling.  Spellings go home on either a Friday or Monday afternoon, and are tested on a Friday morning, we would be really grateful if you could continue to help and encourage your child to practise their spellings.

In maths this term we will be reinforcing what we have learnt so far and continuing with our weekly mental maths tests, and exploring some interesting new topics.  It would be really helpful if you could practise telling the time with your child, and continue to help them learn their times tables, as we are using our tables more and more, and quick recall of them is really important.

In science this term we will be investigating rocks and soils, before moving on to how things grow, including ourselves.  We will be looking at what different living things need to grow healthy and strong, and are busy planning an exciting healthy living week to end our topic.

In RE we will be focusing on the Sacrament of Reconciliation and helping our children prepare for their Holy Communion’s later in the term.

Sculpture will form the basis of our artwork this term, we have looked at different types of sculpture, have set the children a whole half term homework project to create a sculpture of their own.  If you get a chance to visit school, please look out for our class interpretation of Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night, which is in the corridor outside class 2.

On Thursday afternoons,  Mr O’Keefe will be teaching Design and Technology whilst Miss Alcock will be helping the children with Computer Coding.

PE will continue with Terri on a Tuesday, and letters for this terms afterschool club are being sent out shortly.  Music will also continue to be on a Friday afternoon with Mr Conway.  Mr Partridge has also sent out a small number of invitations for after school Football coaching.  Please make sure your child has their PE and instrument on the appropriate day.
