Welcome back! We hope you all enjoyed the Easter holidays and that you had a fun, relaxing break. The children have settled back to school beautifully and we have really enjoyed sharing their holiday news and seeing their wonderful diaries.
This term we will be learning about Space. We will be using reference books and computer software to find out information about the moon, space travel and the planets, as well as blasting off in our own imaginary class rocket! We will be designing and making space models, creating alien portraits and writing space adventure stories. In addition, we will also be investigating light and dark, exploring magnets and weighing our own ‘space rocks’.
This term we will be introducing home- learning packs with suggested activities for you to share with your child. These are intended to be a fun and informative way of supporting learning in the class. Homework folders will be sent home on a Wednesday and collected in two weeks later. Please explore the different themes with your child and help them to record their learning in pictures, writing or photographs. We will also begin to send home small groups of spellings to practise each Friday. These are based on the ‘key words’ that the children frequently use in their writing or reading. Please help your child to practise each set weekly in order to develop their literacy skills.
Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to a busy, fun and successful Summer term with you and your children.
Here are some pictures of Ember Class learning and having fun from last term.
