Sparrow Class

Welcome to Term 4

Welcome back to term 4! We have lots of exciting activities planned to launch our new topic 'Memories - What was it like in the past?'

We will be learning about some changes in our living memory as well as events beyond our living memory.  

We will be thinking about our topic in many areas of the curriculum including English, where we will look at non fiction texts and us them to find information. We will be using our history and geography skills to develop an awareness about the past and how people and the environment change. 

Please take a look at the topic web here and on class dojo for more information.

We will continue to develop and promote wellbeing, teach high quality PSHE lessons and fill any gaps  from the school closures,  as well as teach the new core learning from the Year 1 Curriculum. 

As always please message me via ClassDojo if you have any questions or require any further information.

Home learning opportunities

Reading: Please continue to read with your child at home as often as possible. Books will be changed each week on a Monday when we are at school. You can also change your childs books from the selection in the reception area.

 Spellings: Each friday we will be sending home spellings for your child to learn, they will be in their green home learning book. Please ensure they understand what each word means and help them practise spelling them. 

Maths: Your child has now been given a Numbots login. They can work through the activities in these games to practise the number fact skills we have been learning at school. Please let us know if you need a reminder of your childs login details. 

Additional resources for learning phonics can be found at Mr Thorne on You Tube and Alphablocks on the BBC, also Phonics Play is a great website we use in school.

Reading – recommended reading books to share at home
