Spring Term 2 2023
Welcome back after what I hope was a lovely half term break for you all. The homework that was brought in at the end of the last half term was very impressive so thank you for all your efforts at home – it was great to see all the drawings of animal eyes and vicious Vikings! Class 8 have quickly settled back into their routines and have applied themselves superbly during our first week back. It has been a brilliant start to the half term, well done kids! We have a very busy rest of the half term filled with other exciting activities to enhance our curriculum.
We are bringing a taste of America to school through our topic of ‘America: Land of the Free?’ We will be looking at the human and physical geographical features of the United States of America and will be designing and making our own healthy burgers. We will also be looking at some American composers and artists.
This half term will also see Year 4 begin to think about the St George’s Easter Service at Church where Year 4 will lead the school and the church community in a retelling of the Easter story. The year 4 children should have already received words to learn and it makes all the difference if they are supported in learning these at home. Dates for rehearsals at church and the service are now on the school web calendar.
If you have any queries, concerns, or simply a question, please don't hesitate to come in and see me or any member of the senior leadership team. We will be more than happy to help! You can catch me on the yard at the end of the day or send an email to email@example.com.
Spring Term 12023
Happy New Year to you all. I hope you managed to have both a peaceful and happy time over the festive period. Class 8 have quickly settled back into their routines for this term and have applied themselves brilliantly. We began the year with a fantastic Viking day which was a brilliant way to begin our new topic. The children looked absolutely fantastic in their costumes! I was also really impressed by all the homework that was brought in at the end of the last half term, specifically the amazing models and artwork of different structures. It was clear to see how much effort had gone into producing work of such creativity and of such a high standard.
Please see the documents below for a copy of the new curriculum letter and homework menu for this half term.
This week, we have been finishing our Anglo-Saxon houses in preparation to start our new topic of The Vikings. Keep an eye out for pictures of our Viking day which will appear here soon!
Viking Day - January 4th 2023
What an amazing day we had to begin our new topic. We played Viking games, enacted battle formations and tried on helmets and armour. We also discovered that the Vikings never actually had horns on their helmets and that this is a myth !
Welcome back everybody. What an incredible start to the new academic year we have had. Its great to have everybody back in and the atmosphere around school is electric. I do hope you managed to have a brilliant break over the summer and managed to recharge your batteries. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to Class 8! For those of you who may not know me, I am Tom Norris and I will be your child’s teacher for the next academic year. Mrs Fothergill will also be teaching the class on a Thursday afternoon. The class have made a fantastic start to the year and have settled into our classroom routines brilliantly. I have really enjoyed getting to know the children so far and together I know we can make this year an exciting and successful one. I am really looking forward to the year we have ahead of us and I can’t wait to begin exploring the topics we have lined up for the year with the class.
Our topic this half term is ‘What makes Britain Great?‘ and much of our work throughout the different subjects will relate to this.If you have any queries, concerns, or simply a question, please don't hesitate to call or email me or any member of the senior leadership team. We will be more than happy to help! You can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Class 8 have been very puzzled this week, trying to figure out who has left this mysterious suitcase in the classroom. We managed to open it and discovered that inside was a hat, a compass, some maps, a passport and a telescope. We came up with some questions and ideas about who may have left it. Great detective work Class 8!
