Happy New Year. I hope you have all had a fantastic Christmas and the children are well rested and ready for the Spring term. The Spring term is where we hopefully make our biggest gains across Maths and Literacy and in order to help this, I would ask you all to support the children at home with both their reading and Maths, especially their times tables. I will be doing the same in school with extra support for the class at lunch times as required.
The text for this term is The Legend of Podkin One-Ear (The Five Realms) by Kieran Larwood. We have already started reading it and the children have been enjoying it as for most of them it is a new story they have not come across before.
Our Topic subject this term is History will be looking at Anglo-Saxons, settlements and invaders.
Mrs Walter and Mrs Whiteman will be continuing to support Year 4 throughout the week and again on Wednesday afternoons I will be out of class, with Mrs Hand and Mrs Walter there to help and support the children. In term 3, on Friday mornings, a specialist sports teacher will be taking the class for gymnastics.
I would like to remind you all to not hesitate in contacting me if any concerns or queries arise throughout this next term.
