I hope that you have all had a restful Easter period and are ready for the final term in what has been a fantastic year so far.
Coming up, we are going to be taking a look at great artists of the past and present day, linking this with our overarching topic focus of dreams for this term. We are going to immerse ourselves into the world of the BFG, using this to help guide our writing and reading, as well as capture our imagination and allow this to flourish.
Of course there are other things to be excited about this term, including the Year 4 residential to Walesby Forest and the Year 5 and 6 residential to Cober Hill, which I'm sure for a lot of the children will be one of the highlights of their school year.
I'm really looking forward to this final term and witnessing the fantastic learning that I'm sure will continue to impress me as we see this year out.
Welcome back to School!
It’s been an absolute pleasure seeing the children back into year 5 and welcoming our new year 4’s into Class 3. We have had a fantastic start getting to know one another and learning the new routines of Class 3.
We have an exciting term ahead in where we will be delving into Victorian times, which is our topic for this term, to understand their inventions and industry of the time alongside other things. To kick things off we are visiting Blists Hill Victorian Town on Tuesday 18 September with Class 4, a letter has already been sent home with all the information needed. This will help whet the appetite for further exploration of how life truly was during this era which will culminate in a Victorian style day, incorporating the teaching style of that time!!!
In addition, this term Years 4 & 5 have been selected for swimming – a letter has gone home with regards to this fantastic opportunity. Please ensure that the slip with regards to the use of goggles is returned prior to going swimming on the 12September. Please note that the requirement of authorisation to wear goggles is stipulated by Nottingham County Council and therefore children without a permission slip will not be able to wear them.
Finally, I would like to make you aware that homework in the shape of fluency facts and spellings will be sent home regularly. Learning to learn homework will also be sent home once a term.
I am eager to get to know the children in my class at the earliest opportunity, of which a large part of that includes forming relationships between parents/carers and myself. If you have any questions, please book an appointment that suits both parties with me or via the office.
I look forward to seeing you at the meet the teacher evening on Tuesday 11th September 2018.
