Happy New Year !!!
Welcome back to the start of a New Year. This term we have two leading topics. Our first is a Geography based topic. We will be contrasting Salford with Clermont Ferrand, the French city that Salford is twinned with and learning all about that area of France. We will also looking at the question 'How to create and ideal town?' and making our own ideal towns.
We will then be moving on to our first History topic, the Romans. We will be learning all about this very interesting period in history, who the Romans were and what they have done for us.
This term, P.E. will take place on Mondays and Thursdays. Please make sure both PE kits are in school at all times (indoor and outdoor) and that all items have your name in them. The children will be going to Worsley Leisure Centre for their weekly swimming lessons on a Thursday - Mrs Gibson will be at the pool from 8.30am and all children should arrive by 9am for the register. Swimming will continue until the half term holidays in February.
Homework will be the Pick'n'Mix format, click the link below. Please aim to complete one activity a week. A special 'Homework Celebration' day will take place at the end of the term. Spellings will be put on Spelling Shed on a Thursday, the children have a week to learn them and will be tested the following Thursday. We also have Times Table Rockstars, this is another brilliant way of engaging the children with the learning of their times tables.
Please try to read at least 4 times a week as it makes a huge difference to your learning! If parents/carers are able to ask you questions as you read, this will support your comprehension skills greatly. To clarify right from the beginning of the year, children are allowed to read their own book every now and again, however, please make the school book a priority as it gives children the opportunity to access a wider range of texts and vocabulary.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to me or make an appointment with Mrs Renshaw at Reception.
We look forward to a fabulous year ahead!
Mrs Wibberley & Miss Jervis
