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 3S and 3G have P.E on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please ensure that the PE kit you provide your child is suitable for them to wear outside during cold weather.
TOPIC: This term our theme is The Romans. We will be visiting Peterborough Museum on Wednesday 17th October for a Roman day. The children will be writing recounts of the visit and putting them on this website along with photos.
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). Your child will get a piece of Maths home learning on Friday. Please ensure they do this on their own or with minimal support as we have time available during the week to support children who are finding it hard to understand.
ENGLISH: Please continue to 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.
Please could you ensure that library books are returned on Fridays 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: In the spring term your child will begin to learn and understand the importance of safety rules and who and when to tell. They will identify those people who they trust, and this will be used to develop a Network of Support. They will be learn to assess how safe they feel in the school and grounds. They will learn about their sixth sense and how to use their senses to help keep themselves safer. Your child will be able to identify and name body parts, including intimate body parts and describe the difference between ‘yes’ and ‘no’ touches. They will be able to describe ‘good’ and ‘bad’ secrets and tricks and be able to demonstrate that they know when to tell, if a secret or trick could hurt someone. They will learn to assess different levels of risk, including problem solving. They will learn to use their voice and body language to help keep themselves safer.
