In Woodpeckers Class, our topic for the Summer term, is 'Big Top Circus.'
The children will be learning all about the Circus, Circus acts and the history of the Circus! They will get the chance to make their own Circus ready to show at Open studios and learn lots about how the Circus has changed over time and ways in which it has stayed the same. We have got two very exciting trips this term, we will be going to the Norfolk Heritage Centre at the Forum to learn all about the history of the Circus and have a look at some Circus artefacts! We will also be going to the Hippodrome Circus as our end of year trip which was great fun last year! As well as this we have the circus workshop to take part in at school!
In addition to our topic we will also complete a variety of different learning activities during our themed week of St.Lucia!
Please look on our class page later in the term for photos of our work. They will be uploaded on DB along with a weekly blog. We will shortly be moving our learning pictures to Tapestry, like you would have used in Reception to make it easier to access.
Each Thursday your child will receive their spellings, which are to be learnt ready for Tuesday. In their spelling books they will also be reminded to use Maths Whizz and Reading Eggs at home weekly! Please spend an hour a week on Maths Whizz in order to make the appropriate progressions. If you have any queries in regards to the homework please don't hesitate to speak to Miss Dyball.
We will listen to your child read at least twice a week in school, but we ask that children are heard reading at home at least THREE times a week and that their reading diary is signed for each time they read. This will help your child to receive their reading sticker and gain a prize! Reading Eggs does count towards their three reads but it MUST be written in their reading diaries please!
We have PE every MONDAY and WEDNESDAY . Please ensure that your child's PE kit is kept in school so that they have access to their PE kit at all times. Please also ensure that your child has spare clothing in their bags in case of any toilet accidents. These should be kept in school.
We do cooking on a Tuesday. Please ensure that your child has a labelled container in school each Monday so that they can take home their delicious treats!
