Welcome to the Spring Term
Date: 4th Jan 2017 @ 9:56am
Hello everybody and welcome back to the Spring Term! You forget how much time flies until you realise that the year is already moving so quickly. The children all came back to school very excited in Year 4 yesterday because we have started our swimming lessons for two whole weeks (apart from Mondays)! The children were all beautifully behaved at swimming yesterday and tried really hard; I was really proud.
Our new theme this half-term is 'Inner Space' which is all about the inside of our bodies! Please see our curriculum maps to get more of an in-sight and I will send the more in-depth letter home this week. I can't wait to start writing newspaper articles with the children- it will be lots of fun and will use all of their imaginations! In Maths, we are carrying on with more multiplication and division, soon moving on to fractions, so any extra practise with this at home would be great!
Maths homework will be sent out on Monday 9th January and reading starts again tonight! I have sent the children home with some cool reading challenges incase they want to do some fun activities around their books (this is not complusary)!
I hope that the first week back wasn't too tiring for everybody with the school run and that you all had a lovely Christmas.
All the best for the New Year,
