Dear Parent/Carer,

Welcome to the Spring term, here is a flavour of what we will be working on this term.
Literacy: This term we will begin our literacy sessions by folk tales from India.
Numeracy: We are working on fractions, perimeter, area and length.

Design and Technology: We will be investigating Mechanisms and Control.
Computing: This term in our lessons we will be looking at Searching Technologies.

PHSE/Citizenship: We will be looking at Friendship and Bullying.
French: We will be exploring the French words for days, months and how to talk about your age.
Homework: Maths homework is set on Monday to be returned on Wednesday.  English homework is set on Wednesday to be returned on Friday. Spellings will be set on Friday to be tested the following Friday. Some children find it extremely beneficial to read these with their parents/carers and your support in this is very welcome. Additionally if your child is a developing reader it is important that they get as much support at home as possible through reading and sharing books.
If you have any queries about your child please feel free to contact me. Sometimes conversations at the beginning of the day are not easy as lessons need to be started promptly so after school meetings would be preferable.
I look forward to the exciting term ahead with Class 3.
Mr Bonham
