Dear Parents and Carers,
This term we will be learning about Japan and how Earthquakes affect the lives of people in Japan. We will be reading Michael Morpurgo’s book: Kensuke’s Kingdom and our literacy work will be based around this book.
Our focus this term remains to be on reading and spelling. Please remember to encourage your children to read, at least three times a week, and record this in their reading records. These should be brought in on a Monday. It is your child’s responsibility to change their book once they have read it. If you happen to have any at home, please hand them into your child’s teacher. Children are encouraged to practise their spellings, at home, daily. This can be done by simply saying, writing and checking their spellings. The children have also learnt many other ways to practice their spellings at home, please see your child’s teacher if you would like support with this.
Finally, if at any point, you need to talk to us, please call the office, email us (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org) or try and grab us at the beginning or end of the day.
Mrs Sharp and Mrs Cooper
