Spring Term Week 1

Dear Parents

Welcome back to the Spring Term. We hope you had a lovely break over the holidays with family and friends. We are looking forward to a busy and productive term.

Over the first couple of days the children settled back in to a routine and started some of their new units.

In RE we have begun Mission - looking at the meaning of missions within communities, charities and faith. The children have a piece of homework on this that will cover 2 weeks.

Much to the children’s excitement we have started Myths and Legends in English. Firstly looking at the story of Prometheus and Pandora’s box. We also linked this to our first Art lesson where the children worked on developing portrait skills and then applied this to create some great portraits of Greek Gods. These will be finished by the next blog so I will be able to post some pictures of them.

In Maths we have begun with a focus on problem solving. This was the focus of the homework and will be continued next week. It is a vital part of our Maths lessons, enabling the children to apply their numeracy skills to every day problems and tasks. Please support them if necessary by using visual or real life representations of the questions.

Next week we will start new topics in Science, Topic, PE, Computing and Music!
