School Trip and Forest School *NEW*
We will be going on our school trip this Wednesday 11th April. If you have not already returned your permission slip, please do not forget to bring it in on the first day back to school!
Please note, children will need to wear full school uniform and bring a packed lunch for the trip.
Thank you for all of your offers of help. The school office has already notified volunteers for our school trip. However, if you are still interested in helping on future trips then we have forest school in Term 5 and 6. Please let Mrs Fulcher or the school office know if you are able to help on the following dates:
Topic- Our Wonderful World!
This term our core text is The Tin Forest by Helen Ward. We will be thinking about how we can respect and protect our wonderful world. This will also link to our previous science work on materials as we can think about which materials are recyclable (a bit like in the story). We will take a plane ride to different countries around the world and discuss and discover the different climates and the plants and animals we might find there. Furthermore, we will wear our wellies and explore more local areas, like at Forest School, to find common wild and garden plants and trees and learn more about animals and their habitats.
"Where there is a dream, hope can grow."
Reading *Help needed!*
Please note that book change will continue to be on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please encourage your child to read their book 2-3 times and please can you write in their reading record each time they read, even if you just date and initial. There is a reading timetable so you know which day your child will be reading to a teacher or TA- please ensure their books are in school on this day!
We are always grateful if you can come in to listen to the children read. It is a valuable exercise as the children really enjoy reading to volunteers and it improves their confidence too. Please let Mrs Fulcher, Mrs Coates or the school office know if you are able to commit to listening to readers this term.
In June the children will be doing the National Phonics Screening Check. In preparation, this term we will be practising our Phase 3 and 5 sounds. Your child may be sent home specific sounds to practise so please check their reading records for this. Please encourage your child to actively 'spot' the digraphs within words when reading with you.
You can practise your sounds and your blending on:
This term we will be learning multiplication and division and exploring fractions.
