Welcome back. I can’t believe that we are in Term 5 already, summer is just around the corner and we are in for a busy term.
Our Value for this term is tolerance and so this will be our focus running through our assemblies and day to day school life. Being tolerant doesn’t mean that we have to agree with everything and everyone but it does mean that we should make space for other people’s differences and opinions. Please encourage your children to display tolerance at home and discuss with them how to be tolerant, it will benefit those sibling arguments (of which I had many in my childhood!).
Early Years and Key Stage 1 are looking at the question ‘Does every picture tell a story?’ They we will looking at a range of artist’s work and even creating their own, you never know we may have a Picasso in the making! Year 2 will also be having assessments known as SATs this term, look out for a date for a parents’ meeting about these.
Key Stage 2 are looking at the question ‘What lies beneath?’ Year 3 and 4 are looking at volcanoes and even have a trip in the pipeline, look out for more details from the class teachers. Year 3 will be swimming at Ridgeway so look out for the permission letter. Year 5 and 6 are going down the dinosaur route and may even become archaeologists, watch out Lara Croft and Indiana Jones!
This term is extremely important for year 6 as they have their SATs the week beginning 11th May, please ensure that your children have enough sleep and good breakfast especially during this week.
Here’s to a great term 5 with lots of learning, fun and hopefully some sun!
