Welcome to Term 2!
This term, we are continuing with our World War II topic. There is so much to explore in this topic and we know that many of your children are very excited to find out more. Living in Bristol means that there are lots of opportunities for local trips and so we are hoping to arrange some for later this term – watch this space!
Many of the subjects that we cover this term and next will be linked to WWII – in English, we will be reading some WWII picture books as well as writing some war related poetry. In Science, we are learning about Electricity and will then put our knowledge to the test when we make models of WWII houses in DT with Black Outs. Please take a look at our curriculum overview on the website for more on what we will be covering this term.
Our PE days remain the same as last term: Wednesdays for all classes, plus Monday (for Cabot, Guppy and Muller) or Thursday (for Campbell and Brunel). Children should come to school in their PE kit. This term, each class will also be having one swimming lesson to assess their swimming ability. These lessons will take place on Tuesday mornings – please keep an eye on the calendar/bulletin for more information.
Homework days will remain the same as last term. As a reminder:
- Spelling Shed will be updated every Monday
- Maths homework will go out every Wednesday, due in the following Tuesday (this will work on a rotation of either Mathletics or work on Google Classroom)
- Topic homework will go out towards the start of term (1x written task and 1x practical) and will be due in the final week or term 2.
- As ever, if you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch with your child’s class teacher on the relevant email address.
