A big welcome to Jade Class

from Mrs Stone, Mrs Di Pisa and Mrs Gingell

Our topic question for Spring term 2 is ‘Where do I come from?’ Following on from last term we will start the topic back in time and look at houses from the past and compare them to our own homes. After that we will look at schools from the past and compare them to our school now, asking the question, how have they changed? Children will be encouraged to ask a family member about their school days and memories of homes when they were a child, so be ready for that and please ask any grandparents to be prepared!

Chatter Topics

  • What did homes look like in the past?
  • How does that differ from your own home? 
  • How did people keep warm in the past?
  • What were schools like in the past?  
  • How have schools changed?
  • What did children used to write on?
  • How did people communicate in the past?
  • How have school uniform changed over the years?
  • What did children play at school or at home?

You can support your child’s learning at home by:

  • Asking them about what they have learned about in school that day.
  • Discussing the topics that are being covered together.
  • Reading about the topics at home.
  • Visiting the library to find out more about the topics for the term.
  • Bringing anything relevant into school to share with the class if your child would like to.
  • Practise counting carefully and in multiples (2s, 5s, 10s).
  • Practise counting forwards and backwards to 50 then 100.

Please remember all money coming into school needs to be in a sealed, named envelope so all monies can be accounted for.

Our PE days this term will be on a Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child’s PE kit is in school for these days. We have still got an awful lot of PE kit and school uniform that is not named – we cannot take responsibility for unnamed clothing, so it is essential that all school uniform is labelled clearly with their name
