Spring Term 2

This term our Quest will be 'Seeds, Soil and Sunshine'.

Our focus will be on plants and will be a largely science and art based topic. 

We will be combining outdoor learning sessions with classroom based learning, and our Quest will begin with a trip to The Newt on Wednesday 2nd March

Please do keep checking the website for up to date photos and information on our learning.

This term, PE will be on Mondays and Thursdays. For these days please come into school wearing warm PE clothes . Navy tracksuit bottoms, navy school t-shirt, school jumper and trainers. If your child cannot do their own laces we request that they have velcro trainers. 


Reading - please read with your child at least three times a week and record it in their reading diary. If you read and share another book from home - you can also record that too. 

If your child is doing Accelerated Reader they can change their book (and do the quiz) during EMA - this can be done any day but we would expect that they read at least two books a week. 

If your child is not doing Accelerated Reader, please could they bring in their reading book and diary everyday but book change days are Tuesdays and Fridays. 


Spelling Homework - this should be completed by Friday of each week. Please make sure the children write a full sentence including the spelling words, underlined with a ruler, in their best handwriting. We would hope by this stage in the year that most children will be using cursive (joined up) handwriting.

The spellings will be marked and ready to go home on Monday. The spelling test is completed at the back of the homework book so you can check their score. 


Number Sense Homework - this is set each week and will come home with your child on Monday and should be completed by Friday. Sometimes these are practical activities - therefore they don't need to do anything in their books - maybe just write a sentence to say which activity they chose to do and how they got on or sign your name to say it has been completed. 

They can also practise their times tables on TT Rockstars which the children should all have a log- in for. 


Quest homework is set to be completed during the term. The children only need to choose ONE of the options.
