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!

 

 

Key Information

 

Timetable

PE

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.

 

Homework

Homework will be given out on a Thursday. Children will then have the opportunity on a Friday to check with me if there are any issues or misunderstandings. Monday lunchtimes will be available for pupils to complete homework if needed, and the homework will be collected in on a Tuesday. In Squirrels we will alternate between Maths and English each week, as well as spellings and reading.
On the top of the homework sheet their is also a piece of Education City homework that we ask the children to complete. All children who do this will receive 2 stickers on their charts!

TT Rockstars homework is set each week, and top performing children will receive certificates during our 'Celebrations' on a Friday afternoon.

Forest School

Squirrels will be doing forest school on a Tuesday morning with Mrs Mac and Mrs Churchard. They will need to come to school in their forest school clothes. Could you please provide wellies that will stay in school for use on forest school days?

Reading

We have been having a BIG pushing on reading this year in Squirrels, and the progress children have made has really shown on the recent past SATs papers we have been completing! Reading regularly at home is vital to ensure children progress in their reading. Nothing beats some ‘one to one’ time with someone they love listening to them read and placing importance in their reading. With this in mind, we ask that you read every night; even if it’s just a couple of pages, with your child and record it in their reading record book. If the children have not had the opportunity to read at home, they will be given the opportunity to read during morning break.

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

Spellings will be set on a Tuesday to be tested the following Tuesday. Please support your child by practising their spellings with them.

Websites

Links to websites that the children use in school which may be useful for them to access at home.

Letters

Please check here regularly for copies of any letters that may have been sent out by your child's teacher

Class Photographs

Check back here regularly for photographs of what your child has been up to.
