 Welcome to Term 2!

Teacher: Mrs Barnes           Teaching Assistant: Mrs Cooper

We look forward to welcoming you back to class.  Mrs Aurus will also support with some interventions throughout the year.

This term our topic is 'Nomansland - A History In The Making'.  This topic will primarily incorporate aspects of history, English and art with the key question for the term being 'Which parts of Nomansland history should be told to future generations?' Please see the curriculum newsletter below for further details.



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.
  • Children who do not receive Precision Teaching for spelling should complete the following instructions.  The children need to carefully consider the following 5 words this week: deceived, desperate, develop, device and devise.  For each word the children will need to underline the tricky part of the word to spell and annotate to explain what they need to remember to spell it correctly; for some words there may be two tricky parts to spell.  Finally, they should find and list five additional words which also include the tricky spelling part and make the same sound. For example, bargain has the tricky part 'ain' as it sounds like 'in'.  Other words with the same spelling pattern and sound can be mountain but not rain (as this is pronounced differently).  Examples of the work can also be found below.  I suggest the children try to complete one word each night where possible.  Paper copies of the completed work should be handed in on Wednesday.
