Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope that you had a fabulous summer holiday and made lots of wonderful memories with your children and that they are rested and ready for the exciting learning that they are going to be doing this year.

In the first half term of the year, the class will be learning about the continent of Africa, with a particular focus on Kenya. An example of some of the creative activities that the children will be doing as part of their learning are: making African masks, using pastels to create sunset silhouettes (inspired by the work of Martin Bulinya) and after learning about the Maasai, the children will create some necklaces inspired by their learning about the people and their culture.

The children will be focusing on improving their reading in phonics sessions and their sentence structures in taught writing sessions. The children will be studying Handa’s Surprise by Eileen Brown and then creating their own story inspired by the book. The children will also be writing a non-fiction piece about an African animal and doing some poetry work.

In the second half of the term, the children will be learning about the Victorians and what life was like for poor children and families who lived at this time. The children will be writing diary entries as if they were a poor child. The children will also be writing postcards and letters as a Victorian and learning the features of each and the difference between them . We will be studying the work of L.S. Lowry, learning more about the artist and use chalk and charcoal to draw buildings using techniques similar to those that he used.

In science, the children will be learning about animal lifecycles, healthy animals and keeping healthy. 

As the famous quote from Dr Seuss states, "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go," so to help your children to go to more places, please read with them for at least 5 to 10 minutes each day. To ensure that your child receives new books regularly, please make sure they bring their green book bags with them to school every day. 

Homework will be set on a Thursday and is due to be returned the following Thursday. 

P.E this year for our class is on a Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure that your child brings their P.E kit (green P.E. t-shirt, black shorts, running trainers, black jogging bottoms (if required), black sweatshirt (if required) and a spare pair of socks. P.E. kits will be sent home on a Friday to be washed and should then be brought back into school on the following Monday. It is important that kits are returned to school on Monday as we have our lesson on this day.

Please also ensure that your child brings their water bottle and snack or snack money each day.

Thank you

Mr Harley
