Our second book is going to be 'The Invisible Boy' by Sally Gardner. I am hoping to get a couple of copies for the classroom but anything you can do to support obtaining a copy at home is very much appreciated. We will meet to discuss the book on Monday 2nd March.
Happy New Year!
A very warm welcome back to school and Boreal Owls class. We hope you have had a fantastic festive break and that your children are rested and ready to get cracking with all the exciting learning that we have planned for 2020!
We have attached a topic web for this term, providing you with an overview of the learning journey for your children. Our topic theme this term is Rainforests and the topic web shows you how we will integrate all subjects under this heading.
PE will be on Mondays and Thursdays; please could you ensure that your child has the correct PE kit on those days and that all items of clothing are named clearly. Please note that the PE lesson on a Thursday will be outside and it is really important that your child has enough warm clothing to wear. This includes jogging bottoms, fleece or hoody. Gloves and hat are optional but came in very useful last term when we were outside learning hockey!
Guitar lessons will continue on Thursdays.
Homework will be set on a Friday and returned the following Wednesday. The tasks will consist of spellings and times tables practice each evening along with twenty minutes of daily reading. We will send the task home in their homework books. Last term we were so impressed with the effort that went into homework tasks and the quality of presentation. Thank you for your support with encouraging the children.
Spellings will continue to be tested every Monday morning. This term's Spellings are attached for you to print.
As always, if you have any questions about the curriculum please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you for your continued support.
Helen Wood and Sally Pietropinto
