Dear Children and Parents,

Welcome to the Spring Term.  I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and New year.  

I will be teaching every day apart from Tuesday, where Mrs Prockter will be teaching the class.  We are really lucky to have Mrs Kirby as our classroom assistant and she works with us on a Monday, all day, Tuesday and Thursday morning. 

We have PE on a Tuesday and Wednesday, it is really important that your child has a PE kit.  On a Tuesday we have a gymnastics lesson and on Wednesday we have a games lesson. 

On a Friday Mr Underwood teaches us the recorder.  The school will provide the recorder, but if your child would like their own then that is of course absolutely fine. 

We will have a spelling test on a Friday, your child will be given the words to learn the previous Friday.  

To help with our learning of times tables I have sent home a practise times tables book, please can you aid our learning in school by encouraging your child to learn their times tables.  Year 2s need to be secure in their 2x, 5x, 10x, 3x & 4x.  year 3s need to be secure in their 6x, 8x &9x.  Each Monday afternoon your child will have the opportunity to be a times table tester with Mrs Kirby.     

Mathletics and Reading Eggspress homework will be set on a Friday, this needs to be completed by the following Wednesday. 

I will also occasionally send home some extra homework about their topic or for some SPaG homework to help embed their knowledge.

In the national curriculum there is a strong emphasis on reading and comprehension, we will read with your child in guided reading groups and this will also develop their reading abilities and also their comprehension skills by questioning.  It is still very important that you read regularly with your child at home, we would like your child to read the book that we send home, however please feel free to enjoy other books with your child, some great authors are Enid Blyton,  Roald Dahl,  Michael Morpurgo, Dick King Smith, Lauren Child, Jill Murphy, Jeff Kinney, Oliver Jeffers, also have a look at the schools website for further suggestions on our reading list and at the waterstones top 100 children books to read at home.
