Welcome to Mrs Owens Team

22nd April 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,

It was lovely to welcome everyone back last week and see so many smiling faces. The children have settled in nicely and have been so quick to adapt to their new routine. It was great to hear all about the children’s Easter holiday and how happy the children were feeling being back at school and seeing their friends.

This term our topic is ‘Coast to Coast’.  We will begin by comparing seaside holidays to those from the past and exploring the impact that the development of the railway had on British holidays. We will then move onto learning about coasts from around the UK and identifying their geographical features.

This term we will be looking at the story ‘Dolphin Boy.’ We will be sequencing the story and using this text to write our own adventure stories. We will also be writing non-chronological reports about dolphins and writing leaflets to persuade people to visit the fishing village where the story takes place.  In maths we will be looking at fractions.  We will be identifying, comparing, ordering and counting fractions.

PE lessons this term will continue to take place every Monday and Friday so please ensure your child comes to school on that day wearing their PE kit on those days.

Reading remains a high priority in our class so please continue to read with your child at home and sign their reading record. At Sigglesthorne we aim for children to read at least 4 times at home per week.

Your child will also continue to be sent spellings home each week for their weekly spelling test which takes place every Thursday. Please continue to support your child with practising their spellings at home.

Please also ensure that your child brings a water bottle with them to school every day. Due to toast being unavailable at the moment, the children are welcome to bring in their own healthy snack to eat at break time.

Thank you for your continued support throughout these unprecedented times and I look forward to the term ahead!

Kind regards,

Mrs Owens
