Key points in the letter.
- This term’s topic is ‘Explorers’
- Please ensure that your child continues to bring their reading diary each day, especially Monday and Tuesday.
- Our P.E days are on Tuesdays and Thursdays along with a weekly mile on Friday afternoon
- Our Library slot is every Wednesday afternoon
- Explorer dress up day (last week of term)
Our topic this term is ‘Explorers’ which will provide lots of scope to venture into many interesting links across the curriculum. We will be starting off the term looking at Jacques Cousteau and what importance he plays in underwater exploration.
We will continue to supported by Miss Clancy and Mrs Clarke, We will aim to read with everyone every week. I will also be sending home more information on how the children can access the Accelerated Reader website to access reading quizzes on their home reading books.
Please ensure reading records are in every Monday and Tuesday so that we can record reading at school.
We will have a dressing up day for our Explorers topic at the end of term. I will keep everyone informed via Class Dojo of further plans.
Our PE days for this half term are Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school every day, with all items named and in a bag. Plain, dark coloured tracksuits may be worn for outdoor PE. If your child has their ears pierced they will need to take them out before PE or cover the earrings with tape provided from home. Please also check that footwear still fits the children comfortably. Please ensure that your child has a named water bottle at school (they are available to purchase from the school office) and that their clothes are clearly named.
Our library time is on a Wednesday. You can withdraw one book for the week which must be brought back the following week. If you wish to take the same book out again, you can do so.
Please feel free to message me via Class Dojo should you need to make contact. I will try to respond as quickly as I can
Thank you for your continued support,
Mr David Swindells
