Happy New Year!
Mrs Rawlings, Mr Dunz, Mrs Strugnell and myself (Mrs Curtis), thank you for the seasonal messages and gifts, and hope you had a lovely break and are rested and restored for the year ahead.
I believe the main focus from the children’s point of view this term, is our school journey to PGL, which will take place in the final week (26th to 29th March), but there are a few other things going on as well!
Our set curriculum continues as follows:
RE – Buddhism and Christianity (taught by Mrs Strugnell)
PSHE – various topics, including SEAL, and ‘Secrets of Success’ (lessons about being personally successful)
English and Maths - ongoing development of skills
Computing – coding and spreadsheets
Our curriculum foci for this term are as follows:
Science – Circulatory system & animal adaptation/habitats (taught by Mrs Strugnell)
History – completing our work on the Vikings
Geography – UK and Europe
PE – fitness training & multi-skills (Friday mornings), Game On (Thursday afternoons).
Apart from the usual expectations for reading every evening homework will, for the mostpart, be as follows: Maths and English (one piece of each per week – set on a Wednesday to be in on Monday); spelling words will be set on Mondays for testing the following Monday. There may occasionally be other homework in place of or in addition to the above. Homework may be in the form of revision. As always, homework not handed in on time, or not completed to a satisfactory standard, will need to be completed at break or lunchtimes.
Following a lovely term in which we saw the children grow and mature, we are looking forward to a hard (there is lots to do!) but enjoyable term ahead.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any concerns or questions.
Mrs Curtis, Mrs Rawlings and Mr Dunz.
