Happy New Year!
Welcome back to you all – or nearly all as some of you are still at home with this wretched virus! We are looking forward to seeing you soon.
I would like to say a huge thank you to those of you who bought or made me a Christmas present, I felt very spoilt by you all. Your gifts were very thoughtful.
Sadly I missed some of you on the last day of term but Mrs Clode made sure you finished the term by watching the film, “The Water Horse.” My sons “Master’s Graduation” was incredible – well done Ben!
So, a new year and a new start. We welcome Mrs Brunyard back, she will teach on a Monday, Tuesday and a Wednesday, whilst I will teach on a Thursday and a Friday. I have set the children up with new homework books and explained how they should be used. It is essential that they bring them to school daily and take them home each afternoon. These books should be used to work in should they need to isolate: the remote learning activity timetable can be found on our homework and information page under: Self-Isolation work. If your child is ill, they are not expected to follow the timetable: only do so if they are self-isolating.
Our theme this term is:
We have started to explore the theme this week. You can find more information about what we will do below.
This week our maths unit is all about Perimeter and Area. Our Literacy unit is all about persuasive letter writing.
We finished the week by creating our own universe pictures with chalks and oil pastels. When they are complete I will post some on our class page for you to see.
A huge well done to Daisy-Mae who received the Golden Certificate for writing a super letter in Literacy.
We have spellings weekly: the children all have a copy in their homework books but I have put a copy in the spellings section too. They should be able to explain how to use the table: 5 minutes a night only… please.
Finally, have a super weekend and read lots of those lovely new books you have been telling me you had for Christmas. Looks like “Wimpy Kid” was a clear favourite! I must read one soon.
Stay safe, Mrs P, Mrs Brunyard and Ms Nicholas.
