Some of our topics will be health and growth, the weather, the historic house ‘Clayton Hall’, comparing towns to the countryside, growing plants, past and present queens and also comparing a holiday in the Lake District with a holiday in Nairobi national park in Kenya.

By reading at home with your child every day you are having a very positive impact. Please carry on, it’s really making a difference. When they have read the book please ask them questions to make sure they understand what they have read.
In Numeracy practice the 2, 5 and 10 times tables with your children. When they are confident try the 3 and 4 times tables.
Early to bed
Please make sure that the children get at least 11 hours unbroken sleep every night. Plenty of sleep, a healthy diet and regular exercise will help the children get the most out of school.
It may be a good idea to remove mobile phones, computers, games and TVs from their bedrooms on school nights.
Many thanks for all your continued support and please do speak to me after school if you have any questions at all.
