Our Spring 2 topic is Dragon Tales.
Our new topic is all about castles, knights, queens, kings and dragons. Through this topic we are going to be researching castles around Wales, learning about their history, stories linked to the castles and comparing castle features. To engage pupils in this topic we are visiting Castell Coch, we will be touring the castle and having a question and answer questions with a Knight!
We will also be learning a range of traditional tales and using these to inspire us to write our own stories.
Please look at our topic web to find out more about what we are learning!
Our current topic is 'Superheroes', during this topic we are going to be focusing on developing our ICT and sciences skills. We will be learning about Superheroes and their individual features such as powers, weapons and enemies. We will also be learning about real life superheroes for example Police, Firemen, Drs and Nurses.
Children are offered milk every morning.
In addition, for the cost of £1 per week, we will supply a snack for them, for example, pieces of fruit, vegetable or cheese (there is usually a choice). Please pay no later than every Monday morning, so that sufficient fruit can be purchased.
Alternatively, you may choose to send in a piece of fruit for your child.
PE lessons take place twice a week and children are encouraged to change into PE kit. Please supply PE kit on a Monday - this can be taken home on Friday or left in school for a few weeks. Although there are set days for each class, PE may take place at a different time, for example we may take advantage of good weather and go outside, or if the hall is busy, PE day may have to be changed.
Please support your child to read regularly. If you could make a comment in the reading record we will know that the book has been read and this will help us to select the next book. Comments could include letting us know if he/she enjoyed the book or perhaps they found it too easy or too hard. It is often beneficial to read a book more than once as, having familiarised themselves with the vocabulary, children can then begin to read more fluently, adding expression and developing a 'story teller's voice'.
Please support your child to do their homework, for example reading the instructions with them. You will need to return the homework by Wednesday, the following week.
Reading books and homework will be sent home on Fridays.
