This term we are going
'Full Steam Ahead'
We would like to wish you a very Happy New Year.
Welcome to term 3 where lots of excitement awaits us.
Our topic this term is 'Full Steam Ahead' and we will be finding out how transport has changed over time and how Isambard Kingdom Brunel helped to change how we travel. We will learn about the Great Western Railway, SS Great Britain, Box tunnel and the Clifton Suspension bridge.
We will be focusing on reading over the course of this year and in particular, fluency when reading to enable pupils to read at length with increased stamina. Pupils are encouraged to read three times a week at home and log this in their Reading Record. Don't forget to work towards achieving your five page end of term certificate and badge.
Please help us by ensuring that your child's uniform including PE kit is well labelled to prevent anything from being lost. We expect PE kits to be in school all term.
For your information our PE days will be Tuesday and Thursday.
