Welcome to Mrs Owens Team

14th September 2020

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 how happy the children were feeling being back at school and seeing their friends.

This term our topic is ‘Invaders and Settlers.’ We will begin this topic by learning about the Anglo-Saxons; who they were and how they lived. After half term we will be learning about the Vikings; where they came from and comparing their way of life with ours today. In English we will be looking at the legend of King Arthur and using this to inspire our own stories. In maths we will be continuing to build on our number skills and applying these across the curriculum.

PE lessons this term will continue to take place every Monday and Friday so please ensure your child has their PE kit at school on these days. Like before, your child will change into their PE kits at school however they will also come home wearing their PE kits and bring their school uniform home with them too.

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
