Spring 1

Happy New Year! 


We have a short half term of just 5 weeks but we have lots of exciting things to come! 



  • It's History this half term and we will be mapping out the monarchy.
  • KIRFs are focussed on the 9 and 11 times tables. 
  • This half term we will be swimming every Monday afternoon. 
  • In computing we are programming - the children have loved using Turtle Academy to create shapes with their screen turtles! (


As always, please do get in touch if there is anything you would like to discuss. 

I look forward to seeing you all again for parent consultations at the end of the half term. 


-Miss Armstrong.

If you have time, it would be brilliant if you could practice some of the statutory spellings (see below). The Sounds and Syllables Crib Sheet (also below) may help you support your child with spelling using the strategies they are being taught in class.
