Spring Term 2017 – Parent/Carer Information Sheet for Barcud Coch & Aderyn Du

Happy New Year! We hope you have all enjoyed a good Christmas Holiday!

This term’s mesmerising topic is Myths, Magic and Mayhem! Our main topic in Science is “Forces”; including gravity and air resistance. We will be writing information texts and interpreting data about our science topics. We will be mapping mythical places in Wales and creating timelines of when they supposedly occurred. In Art we will be creating Celtic designs linked to Maths. There will also be a strong focus on children navigating their way around HWB, developing their digital competence.

Homework

Homework will include reading with your child 4 times a week (please ensure you sign their reading record each time), practising weekly spellings and minute maths. Depending on the work completed in class, work may be sent home to reinforce learning.

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 these are 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. Please note that only fresh fruit or raisins/ sultanas can be eaten at breaktime.

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

We are always looking for volunteers to come into 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.

Mrs. Rimmer, Mrs. Watts, Mrs George and Mrs. Wood

Junk!

Hopefully you have all had a lovely rest over half term and are ready for full steam ahead this half term!

We would very much appreciate it if you could bring in any ‘junk’ (boxes, tubes, plastic bottles) as we will be designing and making a prosthetic limb this half term.
