Did we actually manage a full half term without any isolation?
Hopefully the weather will continue to be better over this half term. If so please try to send your child to school with sun cream on, a hat and a water bottle. Children will be able to put sun cream on in school but will need to use some of their break times to do so.
We are starting our new book today ' Grace and family' and we shall also be learning about Africa where this book is set in geography.
Sports day is Tuesday 6th July 9:30- 11:00. It will look slightly different this year with only 2 classes competing at the same time. We shall be with Oak. More details will be available when I get them from Coach Leon.
Ms Monks and I are beginning to prepare your child for life in the juniors to make transition as smooth as possible.

Grace & Family - English
This book deals sensitively with the importance of family, difference, separation and reunion. The book concerns Grace's feelings of difference from a conventional family and her emotions and dilemmas when invited to visit her father and his new family in the Gambia. Grace gradually learns to deal with her feelings of being an outsider to her Gambian family.
Handwriting: to be completed by Thursday.
Spelling : to be returned Wednesday
Maths : to be handed in on Monday
Please remember that PE is on Monday and Tuesday and your child will need their PE kit in school then. This will stay in school until half term. We will be doing PE outside whenever possible so you might like to send joggers to use was the weather gets colder.
Please see the curriculum overviews in the relevant term below for details of what we are doing in the curriculum. The weekly spelling words can also be found there. There are ten spellings each week. Ms
Smart will increase the spellings to fifteen when we have settled in. Please help and support your child in learning these words throughout the year. Spellings will be given on a Wednesday to be tested on the following Wednesday.
Spellings will be part of the homework .
Other homework will be set on a Friday to be handed in on a Monday. This is likely to be maths or english but may also be other areas of the curriculum history research or even art
Once established in Hawthorn class your child will receive a home reader. Please encourage your child to read to an adult for 5 minutes each day. They will be given at least one reading day in school but we encourage each child to change their book when it has been completed. Please ensure their reading record is signed then we can facilitate this.
PE will be on a Monday and Tuesday . Please send in a PE kit which we will keep in school and send home each holiday. Please make sure all items are named.
