Mendham Primary School

Juniper Class

Dear Parents/Carers

Just a quick update for this half term, our topic will be natural disasters. We will be learning about volcanos and earthquakes and the children will be researching another natural disaster of their choice.  We will also be writing news reports about real-life natural disasters and practising our fiction writing skills with survival stories.  In art we have learnt about the Arts and Crafts period and in particular William Morris and will now be comparing his work to that of Clarice Cliff.  In maths, we continue to follow the White Rose schemes of learning with blocks on statistics, direction and shape this half term. Our science topic is plants and luckily all our lovely plants are thriving in our outdoor area!

PE is moving to Friday afternoon, still taught by Mrs Tilley. The children will need to come to school in uniform and bring PE kit to change into.

With the warmer weather, please ensure that the children have a named water bottle and hat in school and that they have had sun cream applied before arriving. If they need to reapply it during the day then please send in named sun cream which they can use at lunchtime.  I have also been asked to mention that it is school policy that long hair is tied back.

Finally, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me by email or catch me in the mornings.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Molly Ball
