Dear Parents and Carers,
It is lovely to see everyone back at school and ready to learn!
Our topic this half term will be Why Are Humans Animals too? Please find an outline of the topic overleaf.
We will be having PE on Tuesday and Friday. Many PE lessons will take place outside so please ensure your child has a named PE kit which includes track suit bottoms or leggings, trainers or plimsolls and a warm top.
Spellings will be sent home on Fridays to be tested on the following Thursday. Now that the children are in Key Stage 2, we expect them to practise these at home and although they will be taught the relevant spelling rules for each set of words that are sent home, we will not be practising them in class.
Homework will begin next week and will be sent home in a book as last year. In the meantime, some of you will remember our Summer Reading Challenge when children took photos of themselves reading in unusual places (like Chapel Rock pool, at the dentist and in a beach hut!) We are planning an ‘extreme reading’ display board with Year 4 and would love some more photos like those! Please email us photos of extreme reading to Mrs Smitheram!
Children in Key Stage 2 can buy fresh fruit at play time. The cost is 30p for a piece of fruit, they are also welcome to bring in their own fruit to eat if they prefer.
Mrs Smitheram and Mrs Burns
