Dear Parents and Carers of Meerkat class,


Happy New Year! We hope that you had a wonderful break and the children are ready for the Spring term! We would like to thank you for the many presents, cards and messages. 


Our topic this term is The History of Transport and further information can be found on our topic page on the school website. We hope to go on a school trip too, further details to follow soon.  



We will be swimming during 16th-20th January. Please ensure children bring swimwear, a towel and a swimming hat. Goggles are allowed, if needed.  


PE will continue to be on a Wednesday and a Friday and will be based on rugby skills this term. Please ensure children have their PE kits in school everyday, as well as some outdoor clothing and shoes.  


Homework  - Homework is set on Google Classrooms but also provided here for your reference. 


Reading - Please encourage children to read for at least 10 minutes everyday. Please bring the wallet to and from school everyday and add comments to the reading record. 


Spelling – We are sending home a new spelling log with spellings for each week. It includes ideas of spelling games to play to practise spellings at home. 


Maths – Please continue to practise TTRS. We will be focusing in class on 6x, 7x, 8x and 9x tables this term.. 


Project – This term there will be a project that spans a few weeks, to enable time for creativity! 


“Research a method of transport from the past” 


This could involve designing and making a vehicle, creating a timeline, comparing old and new photographs, presenting a powerpoint, etc.The possibilities are endless! Projects will be shared with the class, so please ensure all projects are in by Monday 20th February.  


We are really looking forward to the term ahead! Please feel free to come and speak to us or email the office if you have any questions. 


Many thanks,
