‘As each one does their part, we grow in love’

Spring Term 2021

Week beginning 15th March

We are looking forward to another week back in school altogether! The children settled well last week and were so happy to be back together as a class once again. It was wonderful to see faces that we haven't seen since the start of January (except virtually) and of course the children who have been in as well.  

 

Our focus for different subjects this week is:

 

English: we are focusing on the book 'The Secret of Black Rock' and will be using this for the rest of term. We will be looking at how to write effective sentences using different writing techniques e.g. adverbial phrases, conjunctions, adverbs and adjectives and also doing some drama to experience a theme from within the book (falling off a boat). 

 

Maths: we will be beginning our new learning on the topic of Fractions this week. We will begin with using the language of Fractions in lots of different contexts, before moving onto fractions of shapes and numbers. 

 

Guided Reading: we will be continuing with the book Romans on the Rampage

 

 

Reminders:

Our PE days will once again be Wednesday and Friday, so please ensure your child comes into school in PE kit on these days. If your child has their ears pierced, please remember to send them in with some tape/plasters to cover their earrings with or take them out for these days if possible.  

 

There will be no homework until after Easter,  except usual tag words, Math's tags and reading. 

 

 

Week beginning 8th March

 

This week we are welcoming all children back into school and we are so excited to have them back! We appreciate that some children may have worries about coming back to school, so will spend time this week ensuring the children have space to ask questions, express worries or concerns and just generally have a catch up with us and their friends. Our aim of this week is to ensure all children settle back into the routine of school as well as they can and that they feel happy and content. 

 

Our focus for different subjects this week is:

 

English: we are focussing on the book 'Journey' and will be writing our own short stories based on the book

 

Maths: we will be completing our learning on Multiplication and Division and reviewing the learning on this topic so far

 

Guided Reading: we will be continuing with the book Romans on the Rampage

 

World Book Day: on Thursday, we will be celebrating World Book Day with the children. They can dress up as any character they choose from a book. 

 

 

Reminders:

Our PE days will once again be Wednesday and Friday, so please ensure your child comes into school in PE kit on these days. 

 

There will be no homework this week, except usual tag words and reading. 

 

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and we can't wait to see all of the children!
