Context for Learning
Our new context this first spring term is St. David's Story.
The children will be visiting a local church to spot specific features including the altar, stained glass windows and pews. A member of the church will tell us the story of St David’s life and will help us learn how to identify religious symbols.
Back in the classroom, we’ll explore the city of St David’s using maps and photographs and find out why St David was so special. We’ll be reading and writing some traditional Welsh tales and watch daffodil bulbs grow. In keeping with tradition we’ll also be cooking some Welsh food and making Welsh flags and lovespoons as we learn about the symbols of Wales. We’ll be learning the national anthem, sing traditional songs and reciting poetry ready for St David’s Day.
At the end of our project, we’ll take part in a lively St David’s Day celebration and decide why St David is remembered in Wales every year.
Please ensure your child has a navy blue PE kit (shorts and T-shirt) available at all times. PE is usually on a Tuesday, but there may be other sessions during the week as well.
Children have snack every morning. Please ensure that you pay £1.20 per week. If you wish to pay by cheque please make it payable to ‘Lakeside Primary Snack Account’. If you would like to pay in advance: the amount for the first spring half term is: £7.20
To increase pupils’ confidence in communicating clearly with a variety of audiences including teachers, peers and familiar adults in everyday situations.
Your child will take their reading folder home every Friday.
Please bring Book Bags back to school every WEDNESDAY.
Your child will have their own homework book with activities for them to do through the year. If no homework has been set, please could your child do a book review on their reading book for that week. This can include a picture and, if able to do so, a sentence about their favourite part of the book.
Children will have a new reading book every week and it is important they return it with their book bags to be changed weekly. Please listen to your child read daily as this will help develop fluency, expression and sight vocabulary recognition.
They also get to choose a reading book from the class library to bring home and share with you.
At least once every half term we will send home a maths sheet to reinforce what the children are learning in class. During the term you may also have homework to reinforce other areas of learning.
Please continue helping your child with learning their number bonds to 10 and beyond and to count in 10's, 5's and 2's. For further information on what your child will be learning in maths, please refer to the curriculum map sent via parent mail.
