Spring Term 2023
This term our Topic is Growing. We will be reading stories, talking and taking part in a variety of activities about plants and animals and how they grow. A major focus within our classroom is learning of new Topic based vocabulary.
Class 11 will be taking part in outdoor learning activities as a part of each day and the children need appropriate outerwear to protect them against all types of weather. Eg. waterproof coat and wellies, that they are able to leave in school for the half term.
We are hoping to go on a Living Language visit to a local Health Centre where we will visit the baby clinic and dentist to help understanding of how our bodies grow and change, focus on new topic based vocabulary and develop ideas for our class home corner.
The EYFS and Key Stage 1 SEN curriculum is currently undergoing developments. We have arranged a meeting in school on Wednesday 1st March at 2pm. Letters have been sent home. Please reply as soon as possible. We would love to share our exciting news with you.
The children in class 11 have nightly reading tasks to be completed everyday.
Children also bring home phonics homework each evening and Maths homework on a Friday..
At the Grange we believe that it is crucial to work in partnership with parents and carers. There is an expectation that you will support us by ensuring that your child completes the tasks that we set as homework.
Obviously the level of your engagement will depend on your child's age but we expect you take an active part in all aspects of homework and, where necessary, indicate that you have monitored the completion of it (e.g. by signing the Home/School Reading Record Book.)
The routines of reading everyday, learning spellings and multiplication tables etc. can be great fun and very rewarding for all concerned. Best results are achieved when homework is not done at the last minute but has a fixed time in a child's established home routine. Short, sharp periods of activity are preferable to prolonged periods of study where concentration can be lost.
Effective learning and consolidation of learning cannot happen in an environment with lots of distractions (e.g. television etc. ) Please give some thought to where your child works at home.
Thank you for support
