Welcome back and this half term our Christian Value is HONESTY.

Welcome

We are a happy, family school with strong Christian values. We all work together to promote a love of learning where children succeed and reach their full potential. We hope you enjoy your visit !

What are we doing this term?

Let's get growing

The final term is here and it is a very busy one, so please keep your eye on the Weekly Words and website for all the information you will need.

This term our main topic is ‘Growing’ along with a number of mini topics as suggested by the children as we go through the term.

Within this topic we will be learning about everything that grows. We will be exploring human growth, plant growth, animal growth with a particular interest in the life cycle of a butterfly and the life cycle of a duck or chicken. We will be hatching ducklings or chicks, watching caterpillars metamorphose into butterflies, planting seeds and bulbs and learning about where our food comes from. It will be an action packed end to the year.

Alongside the main theme we will also be meeting Wallace and another teacher from our link school in Tanzania when they visit in June, going on a number of trips (including a very exciting whole school trip) and hopefully meeting and working with Chinese students.

Oh yes! And there is also the new intake visiting, a theatre trip, sports day, a wet and wild day, the summer fayre and an awful lot more!!!! All in 11 weeks!!

English / literacy
Most children have made incredible progress this year thanks to the effort and regular reading they have done at home. W
e will continue to look at and use our sound knowledge to read and write words. We will be developing our cursive handwriting and attempting to write simple sentences. Alongside these we will also be continuing to learn the High Frequency Words. Please continue to read on a regular basis with your child – it is already noticeable the difference between those who read very regularly and those who do not.

In Numeracy will be developing our number skills by looking at and counting numbers to 20 and beyond. Writing numerals 0 – 20. Working on addition and subtraction. Exploring 3D shapes and attempting to re-create patterns. We will also continue to develop our shape and space language and attempt to solve mathematical problems.


Forest School
This will be a highlight of the week and will be led by the children and facilitated by the staff each week. We will start this on the 5th May. This will give everyone a chance to bring a pair of wellington boots in school if they are not already in school. As the weather improves it would be great if the children could also keep a set of old clothes in school to use as this will be cooler than the waterproofs. Please bring these in on the 5th May. Please remember long sleeves and no shorts / skirts as there are still stinging nettles in Forest school.

One final note:

Hopefully the weather will continue to improve this term. The children MUST HAVE A SUNHAT IN SCHOOL as we do spend a lot of time outside and it is not fair if they have to stay inside.
