Welcome back and a very big welcome to Term 4! Can you believe we are half way through the school year? I hope you all had an amazing half term and had lots of fun and are well rested. We will be hitting the ground running this week!
We continue to learn and explore The Vikings and Anglo-Saxons this term. We have had so much fun already learning together and shall this week turn our attention to Viking life! Please, please, please save any egg boxes, cardboard and cereal boxes for the first week back. We are going to be making Viking shields.
All children have their Accelerated Reader usernames and passwords. Please can we continue to encourage the children to complete a comprehension test once they have completed a text. Most books should be on there! TO LOG ONTO ACCELERATED READER CLICK HERE: https://ukhosted34.renlearn.co.uk/2241001/
Thank you for the push with practising spellings and times tables. Please can we keep on top of this as it is making a huge positive difference to learning! Focus really needs to be on the 8 and 12 times tables this term!
We continue to have trumpet lessons this term as part of our music curriculum. We will still have our lessons every Tuesday afternoon. I will be sending children home with their trumpets this week to practise at home over the holiday!
Our PE lessons this term continue to be every Monday afternoon and every other Friday. The children are expected to have a full PE kit and trainers. We do have our Monday session outside, so I ask that children have the correct outdoor PE kit. This term the children will be moving on to tag rugby and gymnastics.
As mentioned, we will be having a Viking and Anglo-Saxon day on Wednesday 28th February. This time we will unfortunately not have Vitrix with us (he will make a visit in May for a Greek day), but we will still be dressing up in tradition Viking/Anglo-Saxon costume and will have an amazing day! I will send more details in the coming weeks.
I look forward to the children returning and finding out about their half term fun!
P.S In ICT this week we will continue to explore internet safety and also move on to look at Scratch animations.
For Week Beginning: 20th February 2018
