Curriculum Newsletter

7th June 2019

We have begun our new topic called Scream Machine this week, which the children are really excited about. As part of the topic they will be building their own fairground ride; studying gears, pulleys and levers; and taking part in an amazing trip to Lightwater Valley Theme Park! 

As well as these exciting learning opportunities we will also be holding our Sports Day and continuing with Forest School and cooking lessons!

Homework, reading and spelling:

We send homework home every Friday. Please complete and return for the following Friday. For this half term we have an extended project. 

Children are required to bring their book bag to school everyday with their book and reading record, as we read with them daily.

It is important that you listen to your child read. We like to encourage children to read both at school and at home. Children receive a certificate when they have reached a milestone for the amount of times they have read. The first target is Ready Reader. 

New spelling are given out on Mondays and children are tested the following Monday. Please practice these at home with your child. 

PE days 

Holly Class PE - Monday

Birch Class PE - Monday

Please ensure your child has jogging bottoms, a sweatshirt and a pair of trainers.

Forest Schools/Cooking

Each week (Holly on Tuesday, Birch on Thursday)  half the children will take part in cooking lessons, while the other half do Forest School. The children taking part in Forest School will need to ensure they have a coat in school, and a change of shoes if the weather is wet.
