If yIf you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to ask – the end of the day is the best time of day to speak to your child’s teacher, though there will always be a member of staff on the door in the morning if you need them.

This half term we are going to learning about giants and challenging the perception that all giants are bad through a range of stories.  The children will be using the reading and writing skills to make predictions, change the end of stories and even write a set of instructions for a giant!

In Science, as a part of this theme we will be thinking about the biggest and the best with the children learning about testing fairly and ways of recording results to answer questions such as who can make a paper aeroplane that flies the furthest? Which class can make the biggest fizzy drink explosion?

The end of this half term we will be doing a mini topic on Shakespeare finding our more about this famous writer and exploring his play ‘The Merchant of Venice’ as a part of our whole school Shakespeare week. The approach to Shakespeare is very practical and active using a range of drama techniques to engage with the story, characters and some of Shakespeare original language.

We also look forward to meeting with you at parents evening to discuss your child’s progress and achievements. It’s going to be a busy half term!
