Early Years and Key Stage 1
Your teachers are Miss Aldridge and Mrs Issitt.
Welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful half term and enjoyed the sunshine. It’s hard to believe that we are now half way through the school year!
We are blocking our topic work this half term. For the first 2 weeks we are focussing on our RE – Holy Places. We will learn about similarities and differences between mosques and churches, as well as between St Chad’s church and St Cuthbert’s in Pateley Bridge.
We will then begin to learn all about plants in our topic ‘Grow Your Own’. This has a science focus, but also money as the children visit our Farm Shop role play area, and English as we read, perform and rewrite ‘Jack and The Beanstalk’!
For the last week of the term, the children will focus on ‘The Easter Story’.
Please read with your child every night, or as regularly as possible, for 10 minutes or so. Year Two children have a half termly bookmark of spellings to learn and everyone has a weekly maths home task that can be completed in any way you like.
PE in Spring Term
This half term we will be having gym lessons in the village hall and developing throwing and catching skills outside. Please ensure that your child has their indoor and outdoor PE kit at school all week, including black plimsolls or trainers. Thank you.
