Welcome to Term 4
Hello Owls and welcome to Term 4. Time is flying by fast. It is unbelievable that we are more than half-way through this school year. We hope that you had a fun half-term and a relaxing break and we look forward to seeing you all back in school on Tuesday 20th February, 2024.
We are going to be working very hard during this term, but don’t worry there will be plenty of time for fun too! Do you think that we might get some snow?
Our main theme for this term is World War 1 (WW1) and our key question to think about will be: What was the consequence of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand? As part of this theme, we will be exploring how the war started, the countries involved and how our country was changed.
World Book Day is on Thursday 7th March. Be ready to talk about the book you have been reading recently. It will be interesting to share the books you have been reading and to hear your opinions about them.
Remember to look at our Term 4 Topic Map in the Useful Information section of Google Classroom on the Classwork page or on the website to find out about all the skills and knowledge that we will be covering in each subject.
P.E. will take place on a Monday and Wednesday this term. The Monday session will be with Dauntsey Outreach Sport. The Wednesday session will focus on dance skills and orienteering and will be with Mr. Herring. Remember to come to school in your P.E. kit on these days and wear warm layers and a waterproof coat. Wooly hats and gloves can also be worn. It is also a very good idea to bring a spare pair of socks in your school bag on these days just in case your feet get wet. Be prepared to remove any jewellery such as watches and earrings for P.E. lessons. Remember to tie your hair back.
For Year 6 and Year 5, Maths homework will need to be handed in on a Thursday and your Spelling homework on a Monday. English Homework for Year 6 will also be due on a Monday. The Year 5 project will be due on Monday 25th March. Reading diaries need to be brought into school on a Friday, so that you can earn your rewards. Try to read a range of genres, including background reading to support our WW1 theme. Everybody will have a spelling test on a Monday based on the weekly spellings that you have learnt. Remember to hand in all your homework in the wallets that you have been provided with.
A warm welcome back from,
Mrs. Groves, Mrs. Lamont & Mrs. Marshall
