Term 3 - Winter / Chinese New Year

Although shorter, term 3 will be just as busy.

We will start our term with a very exciting, whole class Show and Tell - everyone was allowed to bring in one of their Christmas presents to show the class.  

We will be finding out about Winter, and the animals that live in cold places.  Hopefully we might get some real snow to explore!   We have had a fab time finding out about penguins and polar bears.  We did have a 'quick' play in the falling snow.  We are definately hoping for lots more!


During the second half of the term we will be finding out about Chinese New Year and comparing the celebrations to those that we had recently.

We will be finding out about Chinese traditions and will be ending our topic with our Chinese Feast with parents.  Everyone will be invited back to school to celebrate the childrens work and to share a chinese meal.

Letters came home recently - please don't forget to return them before the 1st of February.



During the mornings all children should be encouraged to leave their bookbag in the boxes as they come into the classrooms and to hang their coats on their pegs.  The children will then have a job to completed before the bells at 8.55 for registration time.  At 9.05 each day we will be taking part in Wake Up Shake Up in our classes


A  book will be sent home along with a reading record for parents to complete.  

If children are working with books from within our reading scheme they must do the work and complete the reading.  If a sharing book comes home we would like to encourage parents to enjoy a story with their children. 

Children are expected to read at least 4 times each week. 


Homework will be sent home on a Tuesday to be completed and handed back in on the following Monday.  These will be challenges to keep you all busy at home.  Please support us with these tasks to help your child extend their learning.
