Spring Term 2017 – Parent/Carer Information Sheet for Gwennol

Welcome back after the Christmas break! We hope you have all enjoyed a good Christmas Holiday!

This term we have got an exciting new topic, ‘Our Wonderful World’. We will be looking at the following stories: Sharing a Shell, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, Farmer Duck, The Scarecrow’s Wedding and Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book.  We will be completing follow up activities through a topic-based approach. The children will also be investigating geographical features of their locality and comparing them to two contrasting places, researching old and new toys and investigating sources of light and sound.

Homework

Maths homework will be based on work that your child will have done during the week in school and will consolidate their learning.  It will be given on a Friday and will need to be completed over the weekend and handed in on a Monday.  Spellings are given on a Monday.  The exercises will need to be completed and the spellings learnt, ready to be tested on the Friday.  You can assist your child in their learning by listening to them read for 5-10 minutes every evening.  The children may also have songs and poems to learn.

Please could you ensure your child has a water bottle in school with them every day along with a coat and a pair of wellies, if not already in school. As we are a Healthy School, we encourage the children to bring in a piece of fruit for their morning break. It is also possible to buy bananas and apples from Sarah in the office for 30p.   NB Only fresh fruit or raisins / sultanas may be eaten at break time.

Home school reading books will need to be in school every day along with the reading record.

We are always looking for volunteers to come in to both classes to listen to readers and help with activities. If you are interested then please let us know (a DBS will be needed if you are volunteering on a regular basis).

If there is anything you would like to discuss with us then please feel free to make an appointment at the office.
