Happy new year and welcome back to Spring Term 1 in class 1H!
This term in English we will be looking at traditional tales and learning the story Jack and the Beanstalk.
We will also be learning about Castles this half term. We shall learn all about the features of a castle and roles of the people who lived there.
Our beloved class bear, Bertie will be continuing his visits to children's homes every weekend so that they can show him all of the wonderful sights in our local area of Southport.
If your child has a medical condition that staff need to know about, please inform school as soon as possible. If your child requires an inhaler, or any other medicine, please make sure it has been returned to school, and is not out of date.
Two reading books will be sent home each Monday. Every week, an online reading book will be allocated on Active Learn. Please send your children’s Reading Record book into school each day.
Jumpers, Cardigans and Water Bottles
Please remember to clearly label all jumpers and cardigans and ensure your child brings a water bottle to school each day.
Please remember that £6 is due at the beginning of every half term to pay for your child's snack. Children receive a fruit snack in the morning break and in the afternoon, we provide a variety of healthy snacks throughout the week and a treat on Friday.
If you have chosen not to participate in the snack scheme and wish to provide a snack instead please ensure that it is a healthy food choice such as fruit or a cereal bar.
Please continue to read at least three times a week with your child at home.
This half term, P.E. sessions will take place each Wednesday and Friday. Children should come into school wearing their P.E. clothes with a school jumper or cardigan and appropriate footwear.
In Geography, we have been learning all about our local area. We have been on a walk around our local area and used our map skills to find local landmarks. We have also been talking to people who work in our school to learn more about their role and what they do to help us. The children though of some wonderful questions, asked them with confidence and listened wonderfully to the answers. A great big thank you to our fabulous volunteers - Michelle for accompanying us on our walk, Mr Bennet, Mrs Freer, Ms Harrop and Dottie for answering the children's questions about their jobs in school. We are always grateful for your support.
