Welcome to Snowy Owls!
I hope you are having a lovely half term.
Below is the main information you need to know for the second term.
This term we will move on from The Stone Age and carry on exploring the Bronze and Iron Age. The children will learn all about this prehistoric time when the earliest hunter-gatherers came to Britain.
We will be looking at Skara Brae ( a Neolithic settlement) to achieve some exciting persuasive writing as well as continue to explore the topic in Geography and History.
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 earn 1 dojo point for every three times they read and have their diaries signed at home.
The children will have spellings every week and every other week another piece of homework.
On the week where only spellings are sent home please can the children spend some time on Times Table Rock Stars and there is also the option to choose something from the homework grid to complete.
Spelling tests will be on a Thursday morning.
The children will take home a look, cover, write sheet. Please can they complete all the columns before returning it with their homework on a Wednesday.
PE this term will be on a Wednesday (dance) and Thursday (hockey).
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. They need to come to school in their school shoes and have trainers with them to change into for PE. This is so that they have clean shoes in the classroom.
Whole Class Reading:
We will continue using the book ‘The Last Bear’ by Hannah Gold for our whole class guided reading book this term.
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) for break time.
Please contact me via the office (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions or there is anything that you need us to know.
Stay safe at home. Remember, there is always someone to listen if you do not feel safe. Follow this link to the Childline website:
