Mrs Andrew and Mrs Stephenson
Reading is a core aspect of the school curriculum. We ask that our children read to an adult at home regularly each week. Please record your child’s daily reading in their reading diary so that we can see how they are getting on. When they have read their book twice, then please encourage them to put it in the basket so that it can be changed.
It is important for the children to bring in their reading folder each day so that they are able to read to an adult in school.
Tuesday with Mrs Sharpe
Thursday with Mr Smith (PE Coach)
Children are welcome to come to school on these days wearing their school PE kit. Please make sure that jumpers have been labelled with their names.
Each term there will be 9 activities (3 Maths, 3 English and 3 Topic based activities) to choose from. We would like your child to complete one activity each week. By providing a range of tasks, we hope that you will be able to pick something each week which your child will find engaging as well as at the same time supporting their learning. Homework books are to be handed in on a Monday each week and will be returned to your child on a Wednesday.
This term our core value is
This term we will be learning about…
The Big Question -
How is Africa different to Branston?
In Geography, we will be comparing parts of Africa to Branston and talking about their similarities and differences. In Science, we will be looking at the types of animals that you might see and grouping them according to their features. In Music, we will be learning to play the Djembe drum - which I am very excited about. For Art, we are exploring Kente cloth, its patterns and its meanings and designing our own. We will be writing letters, stories and non-chronological reports in English. For the first few weeks we will be using – Meerkat Mail by Emily Gravett. What an amazing term to look forward to!
