Welcome back Wolves!
Hello from WOLVES
Welcome back to this new half term. Let us hope the rain lessens a little,however, the darkness is growing, the light is lessening and it certainly is much cooler. This suggests that we are rapidly marching towards the twinkling and blinking lights that make up late autumn and early winter. Brrrr.
We start the new term in English with developing our understanding of William Shakespeare and all that he did for drama and writing in general. We will be examining his life and work and developing our writing around this. We shall be working directly with the play Julius Caesar and from this, Wolves will be developing our writing of characters and settings. This will help in developing the children’s understanding of characters and characterisation which the will be able to utilise with their drama and the production of Julius Caesar.
Our main topic this half term will be Children in World War II. This is an interesting topic which strives to introduce the children to this most significant aspect of Twentieth Century history. The children will begin to appreciate the enormity of this period in history, something which is still commemorated today. It is extremely important for children to continue to recognise the importance of World War II and its effect on modern society, and this strives to deliver this. With this, we are planning a trip to the Imperial War Museum which we help to consolidate the children’s learning.
PE- At the moment, our outdoor slot for P.E. remains Friday afternoons, while indoor P.E. is Wednesday afternoons but please continue to monitor this information as the timetable may change. Please ensure that all the correct PE kits are in school for these days. Swimming may occur this term and will be Monday afternoons. Please ensure that the children have their swimming equipment in on Mondays.
Punctuality- It is vital that children be in school for 8:50. If a child is not in by this time then they will have to be marked as late. It is imperative that are on time as this allows for greater learning time for them.
Trips- Imperial War Museum - TBC; Christmas Unwrapped - 5th December; Shakespeare Trip, Nordon Farm - 12th November
Homework- Homework will be handed out on Fridays and will be due in the following Friday for marking. The homework will be used to support and consolidate what the children have been learning. We will then be going through the homework to check any misunderstandings of any learning. The homework will consist of both Maths and English as well as spellings. Also, please ensure that the children are reading at home as this will really help them.
Please check our resources and continue to check as we will be adding more through the course of the term.
Come back to us soon to additions about what we have been up to.
Have a great term!
