Dear Parents,


We hope that you have had an enjoyable half term and are well rested.


This term our topic is ‘Space’. The children will visit a planetarium on Monday 20th in the school hall. Please see the curriculum plan to see what the children will be learning about.


Jumpers and cardigans - Please can you ensure that jumpers and cardigans are named. The children struggle to recognise their own and it is difficult for us to return them to the correct person without names.


P.E. Kits and Water bottles – The children will be taking part in PE lessons outside. Please ensure they have the correct kit in school (T-shirt, shorts/ track suit trousers /leggings, trainers and a jumper). Please can water bottles be names and brought in daily.


Homework – Your children will have received their TTRS login. Please complete ten minutes on this 3 or 4 times a week.


Literacy – Spellings are sent on Monday and tested the following Monday. Some children are forgetting to learn these and it is important for them to do this as it supports their independent writing.

Comprehension activities are sent home on a Wednesday to be returned the following Tuesday.


Please listen to your child read daily for 10-15 minutes. Please use the questions below to talk about what your child has read.

What was the title of the book? Why do you think they have chosen that title?

Can you tell me the meaning of the word ….?

Can you find a word in the text that means the same as …..?

Can you name the characters? Which is your favourite and why?

What do you think will happen next? What clues make you think this?

What would you do in this situation and why?


Handwriting – Please encourage your child to join their writing. If you notice that your child is not forming a letter correctly, please demonstrate or remind them of this. It is difficult to break learnt behaviours with poor letter formation so children needed to be reminded as often as possible.


Thank you for your continued support.

Kerry Hookham and Julie Rowlands
