Jesus said, "I have come in order that you may have life - life in all its fullness."
Happy New Year everyone!
This term, we have lots of exciting activities planned. We are reading a fantastic Michael Morpurgo book, which will lead into out writing activities. We are exploring electricity and extreme weather in our topic work and we will be swimming this half term.
Let's get going!
Our Christian Value for this half term is THANKFULNESS. Have a look on our Values tab to see how we have been exploring how that looks in our school and how we can live it out in our lives, as Jesus taught us to.
Our RE enriches all of our learning. This half term, we are looking at the question...
Is it better to express beliefs in art or charity?
We will be exploring expression through Christian art and charity work and we will be seeing how other religions approach this question too.

Homework in the Spring term
Homework will be set every week.
The children will be expected to complete their reading, weekly spellings and time table activities.
This will support their progress throughout the year in Literacy and Numeracy.
In addition to this, children will have homework which will be linked to each termly Learning Challenge.
The children will be able to earn more points for each activity they complete, working towards a target amount and
earning a prize when the amount is successfully reached.
We love to read.....

We will be reading a class book - This term, we are reading a fiction novel linked to our Topic on WWII!
We have a well resourced school library where the children are allowed to select a book.
There is also a reading corner in the classroom.
Our class reading book is the fabulous Kenzuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. It tells the story of a boy named Michael, whose family decide to sail around the world after his parents are made redundant from the local brickworks.
