Welcome Bears, Lions and Tigers
The new year is upon us and we hope you all had a wonderful break and are ready and raring to meet the challenges that the year has to offer. Hopefully, you are just as excited as the teachers are to see each other at school, but more importantly, are you eager to get back into the classroom? We have so much planned!
In English, we will be reading some high quality texts including: ‘The Dancing Bear’ by Michael Morpurgo and ‘Fly Eagle Fly’ by Christopher Gregorowski. Our Literacy and Language texts will consist of, ‘The Bogey Man and Trolls’ and ‘The Fly and The Fool’. If you would like to read stories with your children that would complement the children’s learning then we would suggest any of the following books:
'Trolls Go Home' by Alan MacDonald
'The Secret book of Trolls' by Danny Willis
'Stories From Around the World' by Heather Amery and Linda Edwards
In maths, during this term, you will be covering a wide range of topics:
Number and Place Value
Addition and Subtraction
Multiplication and Division
Geometry and Properties of Shape
You will have opportunities to apply these skills within your maths learning by solving real-life problems and puzzles in order to understand how maths forms a huge part of everyday life.
Finally, as we learn and make progress for our future, remember that we cannot replace time. Let’s enjoy each lesson to its full potential and make the most of the present. We worked so hard the first term; we think we can do the same in the next term in the lead up to Easter.
