Happy New Year Snowy Owls!
Welcome back to a new term and a new year, 2023.
I hope you have all had a magical Christmas holiday.
We would like to thank you for the lovely cards and gifts we received at the end of term.
Below is the main information you need to know for the third term.
Whole class guided reading:
We will start our new whole class guided reading this term, using the book, ‘The Last Bear’ by Hannah Gold. Each child will need to bring their named copy into school this week and keep it in school.
This term our topic is The Stone Age, where the children will learn all about life in the Stone Age. We will start the topic by using the book the ‘Stone Age Boy’ by Satoshi Kitamura.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday.
On top of the homework given out on a Friday, it would be great if you could read with your child at least three times per week and sign their reading diaries ( they will get Dojo points).
Spelling tests will be on a Thursday.
PE this term will be on a Tuesday and Thursday. Both of these days will be with Mr Sykes. Please send your child to school dressed in their PE kit. PE Kit should consist of the following: navy, black or grey bottoms (shorts/ joggers/ PE skirt), white T-Shirt and navy, black or grey warm hoodie/ top if required (no football kits please!).
It would also be very useful if they could have a spare pair of shoes on these days (they could have their school shoes on and change into their trainers for PE) to keep the mud and dirt out of the classroom!
Please can you make sure your child has outdoor shoes or wellies to change into for break and lunch as well as a waterproof coat every day.
Our cloakroom is very small in Snowy Owls so please can I ask that the children only bring the essentials into school (book bag, water bottle (water only please) and packed lunch), no big backpacks please.
As the children are now in KS2 they no longer receive a snack at school, so please send them with a healthy snack (fruit or vegetables are ideal) for break time.
