 Welcome to Term 4!

Teacher: Mrs Barnes           Teaching Assistant: Mrs Cooper

This term our topic is 'From The Source To The Sea'.  This topic will primarily incorporate aspects of geography, English and history. The key question for the term is 'How have rivers shaped our local history?' Please see the curriculum newsletter below for further details.  The children will be bringing home a bookmark showing the key topic vocabulary in our handwriting font for this term.  I will update on Dojo when these have been given outShould you require another, please email the office to ask for one.



PE days will be every Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure that children come into school in their PE kit on these days.

Children should have a drinks bottle containing only water in school to stay hydrated and a thin rain coat or sun cap depending on the weather.



Home Learning

Spelling homework.  There are two different homeworks:

  • Children who receive Precision Teaching support for spelling have brought home a handwriting practice sheet for their Precision Teaching spellings. Please check to see that they are 'bumping the correct lines' when they are practising them on the handwriting sheet.  They have additional words this week as they cover previously learnt words.  They will be tested on all of these words after the Christmas break.
  • Children who do not receive Precision Teaching for spelling should complete the following instructions.  Use 'Look, Say, Cover, Write Check' to spell the topic words on the bookmark sent home at the start of this half term.  Check with an adult at home about what each word means.  Try to use the words you are unsure of in a sentence (verbally).
