The main learning focus for this term is ‘Ain't no mountain high enough’ and, as previously, we will take a cross curricular approach for Literacy, Art, Geography and Humanities.
With the Sats drawing ever closer, I will be holding a parent's information evening to run through the format of the tests and answer any questions you may have. Revision will play an important part in this term especially after half term when we will begin a revision timetable and booster sessions where appropriate. After Easter, the children will have regular opportunities to complete past paper questions so that they will become familiar with the layout and wording of the questions.
Should you wish to discuss your child's progress, please arrange an appointment; see me after school from 3:30 – 4:30 on Wednesday or Thursday; or use ClassDojo to email me directly.
