Welcome to Squirrels with Mrs Harrison and Mrs Latty
Squirrels topic for the Summer Term will be “Chocolate”. The focus of the topic will be an English focus, with lots of reading and writing about our class text ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’.
We will also be carrying out a History focus, looking at the history of chocolate and also at George Cadbury as a local figure of historical importance. We will be learning about how the cocoa bean gets turned into chocolate, and also a science focus learning about how seeds grow into plants, and the life cycle of a plant.
I am also arranging a visit to Cadbury World in Birmingham. Letters with information will be sent out after Easter. Any issues, please let me know!
We will be doing PE on Wednesday morning and a Friday afternoon - please ensure PE kits are in school on this day. Also - long hair needs to be tied up on PE days.
TT Rockstars homework is set each week, and top performing children will receive certificates during our 'Celebrations' on a Friday afternoon.
We will change reading books on a Monday and Thursday. If you have read your book to the end, reading it again can improve fluency and understanding of the text.
Children who are free readers can change their books as and when they finish them. Their new books will be checked by a member of staff to ensure they are suitable.
Spellings will be set on a Tuesday to be tested the following Tuesday. Please support your child by practising their spellings with them.
Links to websites that the children use in school which may be useful for them to access at home.
Please check here regularly for copies of any letters that may have been sent out by your child's teacher
