mailOur topic for this half term is:mail
Carnival of the Animals

The stimulus for most of our afternoon work will be based on the work from the composer, Camille Saint-Saens. Over the half term, we will be looking at the instruments used in an orchestra, trying to replicate the mosaicwork of Guadi, designing our own bird, making a bird feeder and using levers and linkages to make a moving animal. 

             

 

All children should be taking a book home each day. When myself or Mrs Wright listen to the children read, we will comment (in the reading diary) on what they have done well and given them a target to work on in future reading.  ​​It would be great if you could listen to your child read about 3 times per week and write a comment in their diary to show how they are getting on with their target from previous reading sessions. Your support in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
