Welcome back and Happy New Year!


This year is "Year of Books" and each class is represented by two reading ambassadors, who have the task of inspiring their peers with a love

of reading.


To start this year off the whole school are looking at the works of William Morris. William Morris was an 

English textile designer, poet, novelist, translator and social activist. The children have been exploring the 

designs and techniques of Wiliam Morris.  Their work can be seen displayed throughout the school.


Convince Me Maths continues in the Spring Term. Convince Me Maths is

designed to improve progress through using a CPA (Concrete, Pictorial and

Abstract) approach. The model encourages a deeper level of thinking and

broadens children's understanding through higher level questioning.

Additionally 'Big Maths' will be used every Friday to allow children to increase their

mental fluency in addition and subtraction.


                                            We have started by looking at money. Children are learning to recognise coins

                                            and add coins together to make different amounts. To give your child the best

                                            opportunity to achieve  this, why not let them count change from wallets, purses

                                            and money boxes.    



In the spring term we will be covering Katie Morag: Island Stories and Grace Darling.

The children will have opportunities to develop their skills through writing

character descriptions, recounts, diary entries and so much more! There will be

opportunities to see the children's work displayed in the classroom and on the

Year of Books display in the cloak room.





Our topic is "Our World... " and as the title suggests the children will be learning about the world around them.
