Happy New Year - 2024

 

We hope your children have had a restful Christmas holiday and are now ready to start the Spring Term.

 

We will begin the New Year with learning about the Battle of Chalgrove, with a walk planned to find the monument and the battleground. We will create family crests and move on to creating expressive arts with acrylic paints.

 

In Literacy we will be learning an old Chinese story, finding out more about China and the Chinese New Year on 10th February - the year of the Dragon.

 

Our topic for this term will be 'How Things Work' where we will cover Materials in Science and making moving vehicles in DT. The children will also be learning to program in ICT using beebots.

 

PE until half term will be Hockey outside on Tuesdays with the Ignite team and Gymnastics on a Friday. Your child will need both an outdoor and indoor kit.

 

There are no planned trips for this term as we are walking around Chalgrove to the Monument and having Science activities brought into school instead. We will be looking at booking a trip in the summer term.

 

There are also plenty of fun days to look forward to this term with World Book Day coming up on 7th March.

After half term we will then study ‘The Great Fire of London.’ We are also hoping to have a visit from the Fire Service - tbc πŸš’πŸ”₯

 

PE will be on a Tuesday with Mrs Fraser and on a Thursday with Mrs Soper. Please make sure you keep your PE kit in school all week so you are ready for both lessons. A navy blue t-shirt and shorts are required for both sessions and trainers for a Tuesday please.

 

Forest School will take place on a Tuesday after half term. Your child will need to come into school that day wearing suitable outdoor clothing - trousers/joggers, long sleeved t-shirt, jumper and a coat appropriate for the weather on the day. Wellies are also preferred as they keep our feet dry. 🌳🌿
