Greetings all and welcome to Term 4
I'd like to begin by informing you that Mrs Elvy will now be working full time as My classroom assistant which is great, for both myself and the children. The extra support and her experience will be invaluable as we move through the second half of the year.
With the immanent arrival of my second child, Mrs Small will be taking the class for two weeks whilst I'm on paternity. As babies have a habit of making an appearance as and when they feel like it, I'm afraid I cannot be specific on date, but rest assured the children will be in good hands.
Forest school dates 4/3/19 and 25/3/19
The class will be swimming every Wednesday this term and tennis on Monday mornings.
This term we shall be reading Anglo-Saxon Boy, the story of Magnus Godwinson, son of Harold Godwinson, Anglo-Saxon king and central protagonist with William the Conqueror at the Battle of Hastings. A great book, chronicling a major part of the Anglo-Saxon period in Britain. A fun read and one I'm sure the kids will enjoy!
Again, we shall be dipping in and out of previously covered areas as well as looking at shape and time.
This term is all about sound and hearing......I said, it's all about sound and hearing! The children will learn how we hear sound and how sound itself travels.
The class will finish their allocated sessions of tennis on Monday mornings with a coach form Hythe Tennis Club and we shall be swimming every Wednesday morning this term.
This term, the class will be learning all about the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings, and their clashes over many years, culminating in the Battle of Hastings in 1066. I am planning a trip to Kent Life on Thursday 4th April as a culmination of this topic. Details will be sent out as soon as I receive confirmation.
