Welcome to the Spring Term! Our Literacy Topic this term will be Michael Morpurgo’s ‘War Horse’. We know the children will love reading this. Not only will it help develop children’s reading skills, it will provide an engaging stimulus to improve their writing skills. Our History Topic, “Groovy Greeks” will be taught through though the Creative Curriculum and the children will be learning about the origins of the Olympic Games, famous battles and life in the city states of Sparta and Athens.
Of course this term we’re off to Stanley Head for a fun packed week of team building and cross curricular activities such as: crate stacking, high ropes challenge, archery, rock climbing, map reading and walking. The children, we are sure, will come back refreshed, energised and ready for the challenges ahead!
SATs preparation is a priority this term and we know you will support your children by making sure that they have:
- completed and returned their homework on time
- practised their times tables and related division facts
- read for at least 15 minutes every day
Please don’t hesitate to contact us, if you have any concerns or issues and we look forward to discussing your child’s progress at parents evening on Tuesday 13th and Thursday 15th March.
