Welcome back to the Autumn term in Puffins!  I hope you’ve all enjoyed the beautiful weather over the holidays and that the children are rested and eager to get back to school! 
 
Our Topic this term will be the ‘Victorians’ and this will feature across our curriculum.  This is a particular favourite of mine as there is so much to learn!  We will look at homes, crime and punishment, health and disease and, of course, Queen Victoria herself. 
 
As Scientists we will be studying Earth and Space where we will learn all about the planets and the phases of the moon, finding out just how this influences our days and months. 
 
Things will be a little different on a Wednesday afternoon this term as we will be enjoying PE, ICT and Forest School with the class being split and all children taking part in each activity on a rota basis.  Those children who find swimming a bit of a challenge will swim until they are confident to swim 25m.  Please can ALL children bring a complete PE kit into school on Monday morning which should be left for the week.  This should include indoor and outdoor kit and a separate jumper.  Long hair must be tied up and jewellery, including watches, should e removed.
 
In our RE lessons we will be studying Hinduism this term which is always really interesting.
 
Homework – the children will all be working on their times tables this term to make sure that they are fluent as this helps with all areas of maths.  Please continue this practice at home if you can.  Daily reading continues in class and children should also read at home and record in their reading records.  Maths Whizz will continue as 30 minutes homework per week.  If you have any problems with connectivity or other issues, please let me know. 
 
I am looking forward to an exciting term with the added bonus of Christmas at the end which, I hate to say it, will be here before we know it.  If you have any concerns or worries, please don’t hesitate to email me as I would rather small worries don’t get a chance to become big ones!
