Welcome back everyone! We hope you all had a fantastic holiday and are refreshed and ready for lots of learning and fun filled activities this half term!
Our topic this half term is 'What materials should The 3 Little Pigs use to build their homes?' and we will be reading different versions of the books based on The 3 Little Pigs. We will be writing instructions, labels and captions and having a go at writing our own traditional tale about The 3 Little Pigs. We will also be writing a letter to Santa – to tell him we have been good! Lots of fun ahead!
In Science we will be looking at every day materials and how houses/school has been built and how the materials are all joined together to make a structure.
Great fun ahead!
In Art and DT we will be looking at bridges and houses and even designing and making our own, so that the wolf cannot get us! So get your thinking caps on!
Please can I remind you that your child's reading book needs to be in school every day, so if we have the opportunity we can listen to your child read additionally throughout the week. Reading is important and if you have the time we would appreciate it if you could listen to your child read at home. Thank you.
PE day is Tuesday and we ask for your child to wear the correct PE Kit (white T-shirt, blue shorts and black pumps) and could you please label it clearly. We will send PE Kits home each half term so they can be washed and returned after the holidays for the next half term.
Homework is given out Fridays and this half term it will be a list of spellings for your child to learn at home over the week. They will be tested Friday mornings on their spellings and then a new set of spellings will be given out and stuck in their homework books for the next week. Please make sure they hand their homework in on Wednesdays.
Please feel free to get in touch at any time. Miss Cornforth and Mrs Jackson are available to speak to you on the door in the mornings and we are always available at the end of the school day.
