Willow Class Jump!

Welcome back! We all hope you had a wonderful, relaxing half-term.

Welcome to the Spring Term. This term our topic is Castles and Dragons. We will also be having parents evening and a parent workshop details of which will be in the newsletter.

 

PE -  Your child will need their PE kit in a named bag hanging on their peg; this should be in school everyday.  We try to go outside when the weather is dry, so as well as a pair of shorts and a t-shirt, your child will also need a pair of jogging bottoms or leggings; they will need plimsolls or trainers to run around in.  PE sessions for this half term will be on a Tuesday and a Wednesday.

Your child should be reading daily to an adult, which can then be recorded in their green reading record book.  This needs to be in school everyday and placed in the green reading box as you come into the classroom in the morning. If your child reads their library book, a book of their own, listens to a story tape/CD or any kind of reading related activity, please also note it in their green reading record book. 

Forest School happens fortnightly in KS1, usually on a Monday afternoon (this does change sometimes.)  Our sessions this half term will be on Monday 24th February, 9th March and 23rd March.Your child will need a warm change of clothes (layers are good) that you don't mind getting muddy, a pair of wellies or old trainers, a waterproof coat and a spare bag for dirty boots, all of which needs to be in a bag on your child's peg.     

Library - we go to the library every Friday, library books need to be bought in each week even if your child would like to renew it for another week. 

Homework is given out on a Friday in a folder, it needs to be completed by the following Thursday at the latest, returned in the folder and placed in the pink basket.

If you have any questions, please feel free to come in and speak to Miss Eddy, Mr Bassett or Mrs Horn.

We are pleased to introduce our Strathmore Maths Ambassadors. In Rowan, Maple and Hazel we have Isabelle, Ayesha, Elissia, Zahra and Florence. In Oak and Willow we have Chloe, Alice, Grace, Beth and Rosie. The Ambassadors have been learning two games that they can play with other children, Strike it Out and Incey Wincey which you can find on the NRICH maths website. We will be playing these on the playground and in the school. The Maths Ambassadors all agree that Maths at Strathmore is GREAT FUN!
