Class Letter

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back. We hope you have had a half term. Thankyou to all parents who contributed to the fantastic costumes on Pirate day. The children looked amazing!

Our topic for the next half term is: Food!

In English, we will be writing our own character descriptions in response to the book ‘Supertato’. We will also be writing some ‘Food’ themed poetry. In Science, we will be planting a bean and observing its growth by keeping a bean diary. We will also be learning about different foods around the world, and where our food comes from. For a more in depth plan, please see our topic web on the classroom window.

Homework tasks:

  • As before, spellings will be given out on a Monday, with a spelling test the following Friday. Children will receive a house point for practising and handing in their home spellings on a Friday.
  • Children should be reading at home every day to an adult. Please ensure that this reading is recorded in their reading diary every day. This allows staff to know where the child needs to read from when being listened to in school. Children will then receive a house point as a reading reward if they have read every night.

If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to write a note in your child’s reading record, or catch me at the end of the school day.

Many thanks,

Miss Bennett

Pirate discovery!

We had a very exciting discovery this week! We found a map in the classroom. We saw that it was brown, old and had a ‘x marks the spot’ in Wroxall! We decided to go on a treasure hunt around school, and found lots of clues, including an eyepatch, Jolly Rodger, gold coins, jewels, and a treasure chest full of….fruit! We had lots of ideas about who might have left the treasure, and why.
