Our current Science theme is 'Light & Dark'.
The children will be bringing home with them tonight, a piece of homework. We have already discussed the idea of 'light sources' in class.
Please encourage your child to check all around the house for different sources of light. Each child should attempt to label their own drawings.
Please ensure that any light source that your child brings into school is, where possible, labelled.

We have been reading:

 'The kiss that missed' by David Melling.

The children have created story-maps to help them re-tell the story.

Can they tell you the story, remembering lots of detail?...

Firstly, welcome back to school after the 2 week break. We do hope that you all had a restful and enjoyable time.


Our topic for this term is: ‘All dressed up - Clothes’. There is a particular focus this term on the historical and geographical aspects of this theme.


The children will look at why we wear clothes; what clothes people wear in different countries; special/national costumes and how clothes have changed throughout history.


In science, we will explore ‘Light & Dark’. The children will learn that light is essential for seeing things; that when it is dark other senses can be used to help us find and identify things; that there are many sources of light;  that light sources vary in brightness and  to observe and make comparisons of light sources….


**We would like to begin the ‘Clothes’ topic next week by asking that on Friday morning (17th January), the children come to school in either of the following:


*national costume of some description (eg sari, Spanish dress)




*their favourite clothes


The children should be prepared to talk about their clothes – colour, fabric, texture, patterns, importance, traditions etcetera.
