Happy New Year! We hope you’ve all had a ‘cracking’ time over the past couple of weeks and are ready to start the new term with a bang.

This term is busy – as always – and starts with an exciting new history topic on the Battle of Britain. We will be organising an educational visit to RAF Museum, Cosford – more details to follow. In addition to this, we look forward to building on our knowledge of South America as we explore the physical features of the countries in this continent.

Children will continue to receive homework and, as always, will be expected to read at home and produce a journal on books they have read. However, we would like to remind you that children may produce journals on their own personal books from home as well as their school books. Furthermore, they may like to vary the content or layout of their journals. A comment in your child’s reading diary is always welcomed and communication between yourselves and your child’s teacher is always helpful. Children will continue to receive two sets of spellings: one from their phonics’ teacher and one from their class teacher.

Class 17 now have the opportunity to go swimming this term and will begin on Monday 8th January.  The day on which your child has P.E may now be different so we advise children to keep their kit in school. Tracksuit bottoms and a jumper will also be useful as the weather is still cold.

As always we appreciate your support.
