"Where Christian values are integral and learning is fun"


Welcome to Tigers


January 2019


Happy New Year to you all, I hope you had a fun yet restful Christmas holiday!

It is wonderful to be back as we start our new topic this term ‘Carnival of the Animals’ which is inspired by a piece of music composed by Camille Saint-Saëns. The topic web attached outlines this topic in more detail.


PE will continue to take place on Mondays and Wednesdays and this term we will be focusing on dance and ball skills. We kindly ask that you ensure your child has the appropriate kit in school and that earrings are removed for PE days.


Homework will also continue to be handed out on Fridays to be returned the following week. We are still promoting reading and would encourage it to happen as often as possible at home (4-5 times a week where possible) to develop children’s reading skills. This is not limited to your child’s school book and they are welcome to read a variety of texts at home. Please could a comment or signature be written in their reading record each time your child reads. This allows us to keep a record of who is reading and when they have finished their book so we can give them a new one.

It is shaping up to be another exciting and busy term and I hope everybody is ready to work hard and enjoy our new topic!


Best Wishes,

Miss Ferryman
