Welcome back to the spring half term! We hope you had a lovely week off and we are very much looking forward to all of the exciting activities that we have planned over the next few weeks.

In RE we will be looking at the Easter story and discussing why this celebration is important to Christians. We will be discussing how the Easter story links to new beginnings at spring time and the significant meaning behind Jesus dying for us on the cross.

In English we will be looking at how and why we write letters, poetry and exploring new texts. We will be looking at a number of different books such as Handa’s Hen, George and the Dragon and the Great Fire of London nursery rhyme.

In Maths we will be measuring different objects by using cubes and rulers. We will also be finding the difference between lengths, comparing and measuring weights, and revisiting addition and place value.  

We will focus on the topic of Habitats in our science lessons which will include understanding what a habitat is and exploring different types of habitats which are used by different animals.

In history we have started a new topic which is all about The Great Fire of London. We will be sequencing the events on a timeline and comparing travel, jobs and buildings from now to 1666. We will also be developing our historical vocabulary through this topic and visiting the National Emergency Services Museum to learn even more.

In DT we will be continuing to look at Homes and the different types of homes throughout the world. We will be also designing and using different materials to create our own houses. In PE we will continue to improve our gymnastics, dance and games skills through weekly lessons.   

Please make sure your child has their reading books and reading records in school every day to ensure they are getting new books each week. PE kits must also be in school every day for children to take part. Homework is given out on Fridays and needs to be completed by your child and returned the following Thursday.
