Dear Parent/ Carer  

I want to give my email address should you have any issues with the work that I have tried to set  (this is also new for me). Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any help.

I will be checking both emails and purple mash daily. The children have asked how much time I am expecting them to be doing school work. I have advised that learning doesn't just happen in the classroom and that doing fun things with your family is also learning. I've told them not to worry and that their parents/carers will let them know how much work to do. The children have worked so hard so far and I'm incredibly proud of the progress they have made already and I know they are just as keen to keep progressing in their learning. I have also attached a document that has a list of useful home learning websites which I think may be useful. 

Stay safe and I will keep you updated as much as I can.

Thank You 

Mrs Taylor. 

Dear Parents/ Carers,

Welcome back, Spring is on the way, Hooray! I’m sure like me you are looking forward to the better weather.  As always, I have a very busy half term planned for the children.

In literacy, we will be exploring twisted fairy tales. We will be examining newspaper reports and non-chronological reports particularly looking at the points of view of different characters. We will also be examining the vocabulary and structure of report writing and producing our own. We will also be producing our own twisted version of a classic fairy tale. During class novel time we will be finishing reading ‘The lion Witch and the wardrobe’, but we should be onto our next novel next week. The children are really enjoying our class novel time.

In Numeracy we will be focussing on Fractions. Then we will be looking at decimals and percentages.  Please ensure your child practices their timetables it will make accessing these units easier.  

Our new topics this half term is North America, we will be looking at the countries within this continent and should be able to make comparisons and show a good understanding of the continent.

Our Science this half term is very chemistry based looking at reversible and irreversible changes. I have a few experiments in mind that I'm sure the children will enjoy.  

P.E. Is still on Wednesday afternoons and Thursday afternoons please ensure your child has their kit in school. 

Once again as always, I must reiterate the importance of reading, this not only develops a love of reading but also develops imagination which is essential for story writing. Please wherever possible encourage your child to read at home and bring their Home reading and library books back into school when they are ready to change them.

As I mentioned before we are wanting to inspire a love of reading if your child is not enjoying their school book and prefers to read a book of their own please just make a note in the reading book journal so that the children can be rewarded for reading for pleasure.

Kind regards   

Mrs K Taylor.
