Hello and welcome to Newts,
Our topic for this term is London and a school trip to London has been arranged. We look forward to the children having a unique experience enhancing their knowledge of the topic. Please keep an eye out for letters going home for further updates.
Children will be learning about The Tower of London, The Great Plague and The Great Fire of London in their topic work. London will also be filtered in to English through the story of Paddington.
A few things to let you know:
PE days are Tuesdays and Fridays - one taught by Mr Wheeler the other taught by myself (Miss Brown)
Homework will be given out on Fridays and will be collected back in on the following Wednesday. Please can you check in your children's book bags to make sure this is completed.
Reading - Your child is asked to read at least 5 different times a week and this needs to recorded in their reading record. Children are aware of these expectations and have targets which they need to try and meet each half term with regards to completing quizzes and successfully earning points. Each child understands that they need to complete a quiz before changing their book. If you would like to know your child's reading targets and achievements for this half term, please do not hesitate to ask.
Any questions feel free to come and speak to me!
During this challenging time we will be setting work online for the children to complete. We are uploading it on Microsoft teams. You should have received your child's login details on one of the letters sent in the home learning packs. We hope you enjoy this learning experience and stay safe and well.
