Welcome back to another exciting school year!
We have been massively impressed with how well all your children have come back to school and settled in so quickly!
After our attempt at a school trip this week we have started our lessons across the curriculum, including covering the sounds ee and ai in Phonics, beginning English work on our new book Zoom and looking at comparisons of quantity and measure in Maths.
Next week we will be learning the sounds ck, th, er and ng in Phonics, starting our new story, What the Jackdaw Saw (by Julia Donaldson) in English and continue our quantity and measure learning in Maths.
We also have Art and Computing projects that will run over the whole of the half-term.
Don't forget our Parent Meetings, being run by Miss Prince next week on Monday 16th September. There are three sessions to choose from:
09:10 - Vicarage Road
14:30 - Manstone Avenue
17:30 - Manstone Avenue
Each session is the same and will cover areas of your child's schooling in Key Stage One, including curriculum and expectations for learning, routines, teaching methods and homework. There will also be an opportunity to ask Miss Prince any questions.
If you ever have any questions about your child's learning or anything else, please see Mr Newton before or after school.
The Star of the Week is...
Our Topic this term is Going Places!
For this topic we will be focusing on Art, Geography and ICT.
In Art, we will be looking at Sidmouth, London and the South of France. We will be using different artistic techniques to look at the different landscapes.
In Geography, we will be looking at the different ways people travel in each of these places and how you can travel to them.
In ICT, we will be focusing on how to use the internet safely, how to take pictures using an iPad, creating new digital content and finding information.
