Welcome back to school. It has been a pleasure to hear all about the exciting things you have been up to over the Christmas and New Year holidays.
We continue to work with Mrs Tordoff on Mondays and Mrs Whitehead-Price for the rest of the week.
This term we will be working on our new topic; Dinosaur Planet. We will be learning all about different types of dinosaurs, about their features and habitats. We will be having an expert visitor from Dinostar coming in to school. He will be bringing a arrange of artefacts into school to inspire the children in their learning We are looking forward to lots of interactive and fun activities.
Group 2's P.E sessions this half term will take place on a Monday and Tuesday . Please can you make sure that your child has suitable P.E kit in school for these days and ensure that ALL clothes are fully labelled with your child’s name. Some of these lessons may take place outside so please ensure your child is provided with suitable kit for indoor and outdoor PE. On Mondays our PE lessons will be lead by Active Fusion coaches and on Tuesdays Miss Davidson will be teaching Gymnastics/Apparatus
Please could you bring your school reading book into school to be changed in the new library area. Children will receive a sticker on the reading chart each time they change their book. This can be done as and when you feel it is appropriate to change it, ideally this should be done once a week. Listening to your child read for just ten minutes each day can have a significant impact on their learning.
Here are some ideas of activities you could do at home to support your child in their topic learning this term. We would be really pleased to see any completed work. Alternatively, if you have any other ideas based on the topic please bring them to show us.
Research some amazing dinosaur facts and make an information sheet.
Visit the local library to borrow some books about dinosaurs.
Hunt for ferns, yew trees, monkey puzzle trees and other prehistoric plants while you are out and about.
