Welcome to the Spring Term

Welcome to the new Spring Term. We hope that you all had enjoyable holidays. We were so impressed by our children last term, their energy and determination to develop in their learning and as respectful members of Jewell was evident in the Nativity at the end of last year.

We have an exciting half term ahead. Our Topic this term is ‘Where in the world?’ and Geography is our focus, we will be learning about countries in the UK and around the world. This will link nicely to our English topic and DT.

We will start our new half term with a Stunning Start,  helping children learn about different countries in the UK, traditions, music and food.  You can help your children to prepare for this by researching the different countries and this will also link to their Home Learning this term. If you have any artefacts that you would like to send in then please send these in.

This will link nicely to our Fab Finish at the end of the half term when we will be inviting adults to join us on Jewell Airways to explore the countries we have visited.

To help us explore our topic we will be reading Meekat Mail by Emily Gravett and writing our own postcards and stories.

We are also extremely excited as the Spring Term means we will be joined by AFC Bournemouth helping children to think about what it means to have a healthy lifestyle.

Reading at home continues to be an important part of supporting your child and the Reading Raffle will continue this half term. Please keep reading with your children and writing in their reading records to give them a chance of winning a prize.

We shall also start sending home a spelling book for your children this half term. We will not be testing your children,  but we would ask you to please use this to support your children in their learning.

If you have any concerns, please speak to your child’s class teacher on the door or make an appointment at the office.

We are very much looking forward to another positive and exciting term ahead.

 

 

Welcome back to the Autumn Term

The children have made a fantastic start to their second half term of the Autumn Term. We continue to be very impressed by the energy and work of our Starfish and Dolphins.

We have an exciting half term ahead . Our Topic this term is ‘Do all Heroes wear Capes?’and History is our focus, which links in well with our English learning. This got off to a flying start with a visit from Florence Nightingale who helped the children act out, sing and explore some of the important work she did,

To help us explore our topic we will be reading Traction Man by Mini Grey and writing our own stories.

 

 

We are also extremely excited as the second half term of Autumn means that that the children will be practising for their Christmas Show and we are hoping parents and friends will be able to join us on the day. Details will be shared about this shortly, so please keep checking the website.

Welcome to Year One

The children have made a fantastic start to Year One. We have been very impressed with our new Dolphins and Starfish, all looking super smart in their new uniforms.

We have an exciting half term ahead with a Geography and Science focus, which links in well with our English learning. This got off to a flying start with our hook, visiting our forest school area and choosing our very own stick, just like Stanley in our text, Stanley Stick.

We are also extremely lucky to be taking part in fresh air club every Monday, on alternate week per class. Dolphins made a great start this week, building their own shelters and learning how to work together as a team.
