Dear Robin’s Parents and Children
We hope you all had a wonderful half term break and are looking forward to the final term of the year. I can’t believe we only have 7 1/2 weeks left. Lots of time to keep learning!
For the following 2 weeks we will be continuing with our body topic and concentrating on our senses in particular. We will be exploring the 5 senses through a variety of different experiments and activities. We hope the children enjoy the tasting and smelling activities and exploring with jelly! If your child has any allergies to the following foods then please let me know as soon as possible: lemon, jam, dark chocolate, onion rings/crisps.
We will then move on to this terms topic which is “Pirates”. See our topic plan for more detail. We hope to complete our topic with a dress up day later in the term. Look out for more information in the next few weeks. If your child has any books about pirates, fiction or non-fiction please could we borrow them? We promise to take very good care of anything that is brought into school. We have quite a few pirate ships and dressing up clothes in school, but if you have anything that would make our topic even more enjoyable then please send them in! Thank you!
Please could we have any old shoe boxes or small similar boxes so we can make some treasure chests.
We will continue to develop our writing skills through news writing, stories, non-fiction and poetry. Your children will be bringing home the phonemes they need to practise and high frequency words during the next couple of weeks, if possible please spend time with them helping them to learn them off by heart. This will help their transition into Year 1 and 2.
Forest school will begin on Wednesday 5th June, please ensure the children have suitable clothing for all weathers, trousers/jumpers/sweatshirts/coats/and wellies. We can provide some waterproof trousers, but if your child has their own then please ensure they are clearly labelled.
Our timetabled PE times are Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, but please could you ensure that your children have their PE kits in school every day, just in case! Please could you also check they have the correct kit in their bags as often they are missing T- shirts or shorts. We do have some spares in school.
If anyone has any old white or grey socks we could have we would really appreciate them!
If anyone has any spare time they could give to do some filing of children’s work or sharpen pencils, I would be very grateful. It is a very time consuming job, but even half an hour would be appreciated. Many thanks.
Please don’t hesitate to come and talk to us about any concerns you may have.
