Happy  New Year.

I hope that you all enjoyed  Christmas and have had a good 2019 so far. Please can we all take this opportunity to thank you for all the cards, gifts and Christmas wishes we received at the end of term. It was all very much appreciated.

We return to a new term and a new year, hopefully refrshed and ready to learn. Our new topic will be Journeys       through time) We will be exploring an exciting new picture book called Journey by Aaron Becker. The writing of the text and content of the story will be written by the children ourselves and will work together to use our editing skills to continually modify our language, handwriting and punctuation. We will also be discussing what it was like to live over 200 years ago, in the Victorian period. The children will have the opportunity to research the similarities and differences in life then and now. We will also learn about significant historical figures and how they influenced our life today. 

 Miss Eleanor Clifford joins us this half term, and we welcome her to the school.  Ellie will be with us until Easter. She has previously taught in Year 5 at Tarvin, where Miss Ouseley is now completing part of her placement. Mrs Garnham will continue be in Class Two on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and Mrs Cooper will be here every Monday and on a Friday. Mrs Kinsey will be joining us and working with groups of children in the afternoons. Mrs Tench has returned from maternity leave and will be sharing her passion and expertise for art and design on a Thursday afternoon. She will also be in Class Two on Fridays, we are all looking forward to working with her again.

We remind you that, spellings tests will take place every Thursday. Homework is to be returned by Monday. Books will be given out again each Tuesday to allow time for it to be marked. Children are expected to read as often as possible to develop and maintain fluency and confidence. Please can you write in their diaries when you have read with your child. Children  in year 3 are able to change their books as they need to and don't have an allocated day. Year 2 children are encouraged to change their books on a Monday or Tuesday but are able to swap books independently as required.

We are continuing to focus on handwriting and spelling and thank you for your support in this through the completation homework tasks.  We are so impressed with the children's interest and motivation in this area. 

We are very much looking forward to the term ahead.

Please don't hesitate to come and see one of us if you have any worries or concerns.
