Welcome back to school Maple Class. We hope you have had a fantastic Christmas and would like to wish you a Happy New Year! We look forward to all your hard work this term and supporting you in becoming more independent learners.
This term in Maple Class our humanities topic is Travel and Transport. The children will be learning about many different aspects including Westerham railway and town from a range of different sources. We will be looking closely at aerial photographs and travel routes, making important links to the community.
In Science the children will be focusing on identifying, naming and describing properties of everyday materials. And, as usual, will be continuing to learn about a range of different genres and concepts in English and Maths.
Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday and all children should have appropriate PE kit in school every day. Please ensure all school uniform, PE kit, coat and personal belongings are named.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and must be handed in by the following Wednesday at the latest. Spellings will also be given out on the same day as the homework. Spellings will be tested on Fridays.
The children will continue to bring home two reading books and two class library books, these will be changed weekly. They are also encouraged to read other types of text from a range of sources, eg. home, internet, environment or local library.
We look forward to a fantastic term ahead.
