General Information: Now that the weather is getting colder please could you make sure that the children have a warm coat to wear and suitable black school shoes.
PE: Both 3O and 3G have P.E on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure that the PE kit you provide your child is suitable for them to wear outside during cold weather.
TOPIC: Next half term our theme will be Ancient Egypt. In science we will be learning about light and shadows. Our year group assembly will be on Friday 29th November 2013.
MATHS: We feel the best support you can give at home is to regularly test your child's times tables and number bonds (numbers that go together to total 10, 20 or 100).
ENGLISH: Please listen to your child reading daily. We would also encourage discussion of what they have read. You can best support your child's spelling by testing them and checking that they are learning by using look, say, cover, write and then check.
HOME LEARNING: The children will be set regular home learning activities from the Education City website. They will usually have 2 weeks to complete the activities. We will also on occasion set other home learning tasks on a Friday. Please check your children's book bags regularly.
Please could you ensure that library books are kept in the children's book bags and brought with them to school each day so that the children can choose new books. The new library system will not allow your child to change books until books are returned or replaced.
PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT: Your child will identify risky places, people, activities and behaviour. They will consider that risk can be emotional and social as well as physical. They will think about how they might react in a risky situation, including physical and emotional responses and the influence that friends might have on their decisions and actions. They will consider ways of reducing risk in everyday situations and their responsibility in this. They will learn to explain what an accident is, what could cause one and to suggest ways of preventing them. They will develop a range of strategies to aid decision making in risky situations, including identifying people who might be able to help. Your child will also consider what constitutes an emergency and when they can offer help as well as when they would need to get further help.
