Welcome back for the Spring Term!
Happy New Year! Welcome back Kingfishers Class! I hope you all had a lovely festive break.
This Spring term our project is Journeys Around the World and we will be focusing on Kenya. We will be comparing life in Kenya to life in Pulham. This topic is rich with so many opportunities to explore, amongst which we will explore different art forms, printing and music, as well as investigating animals and their habitats as part of our science curriculum.
Reading – Children should continue to read regularly at home and we will endeavour to ensure that all children are heard by an adult at school, at least once a week. As I always say, whatever your child’s ability, regular practice has been proven to significantly improve your child’s progress in reading and understanding the world around them. Sharing a book regularly with your child and discussing it as you do is also invaluable, especially for those reluctant readers.
Maths – We will be investigating geometry as well as multiplication and division. A second parent session to support this will be confirmed shortly to compliment the addition and subtraction session held in October. Please encourage your child to use Maths Shed at least once a week to develop their mental Maths Skills. Their login details are located in the front of their reading records. If you cannot find it, please let me know.
RE – Mrs Goddard will be exploring the theme of Salvation with a focus leading to Easter.
Physical Education – Our PE sessions will be Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure PE kits are in school Monday to Friday as we may need them on other days than just our scheduled PE slots. On PE days, all shoulder length and longer hair is to be tied back and earrings are to be removed or taped over. Year 3s will be starting swimming on Wednesdays this term, please ensure they have the appropriate kit in school for these sessions.
If you have anything you wish to inform me of or discuss, please so not hesitate to email me: email@example.com. This could be pick up arrangements, an achievement you wish to share or anything else you think I need to know day to day, or longer term, about your child. Please note Mrs Goddard continues to teach Kingfishers on Thursday and Friday afternoons so, I will pass on anything she needs to know.
I look forward to hearing all of your children’s stories about their holidays as well as sharing with them all of the wonderful things they are going to learn this term.
