Hello from the wonderful to Poldark Class!

Welcome to Winter everyone! The children are all making excellent progress as we head towards Christmas. They are working hard in Read Write Inc. sessions and are also enjoying the daily mile. As the nights are closing in and mornings become darker, we are embracing the season of Winter and look forward to celebrating this magical season with the children.  We will soon begin rehearsals for our new groovy nativity 'The Inn Crowd' which both the staff and children are very excited about.

Our theme this half term is 'Tale as Old as Time'  based on the novel and fairy tale Beauty and the Beast. Please open our topic medium term plan below in the link section to find out more.  We will be thinking about the changeable states of  materials in Science with a focus on rock, ice, water and snow. In English, we will be writing our own versions of the traditional story, creating newspaper articles, letters and poetry/riddles and in R.E we will be focusing on Incarnation as part of our celebrating being a Christian at Christmas and following this - in the New Year we will study Judaism.  If any one would like to bring in any Beauty and the Beast themed props then these would be warmly welcomed. 

P.E.

We have P.E on a Wednesday mornings but please be aware that P.E slots may be subject to change. We would appreciate it if P.E kits are kept in school all week. 

Library

Our library slot is on a Friday afternoon. The children are really enjoying choosing  a new book each week to take home. This books is for you to share with your child as a supplement to their Read Write Inc book.  Please remember to return library books every Friday to enable us to provide your child with a new book.

Homework 

Homework grids have been handed out to the children in their green homework books. Please feel free to stick photo evidence in of their collages, weather reports and menus inside. The children will have an opportunity to share their wonderful work with their peers in school time. As well as this, there will be a homework display board to celebrate their efforts.  Thanks you for all of your ongoing support with their homework and we are delighted with all of the work brought in already. 

Coats and Jumpers,  water bottles and fruit

Please ensure that your child is supplied with a labelled coat and jumper as the weather is beginning to get cooler.  A water bottle with your child's name can be kept in the classroom so the children can keep hydrated all day.  Fruit is available free of charge at break time but please feel free to provide your child with their own fruit/vegetable snack if your prefer.
