Welcome to Kingsland class!
Welcome to the Spring term. We hope you’ve had a relaxing festive break and are ready to hit the ground running in our new academic year.
Our main topic this term will be the ‘The Romans’. We will be studying: What life was like for all groups of people during Roman Britain; explain how Britain changed during Roman Britain; key leaders that influenced Roman Britain; and how we know about Roman Britain. Remember to check our class webpage on the school’s website for updates on what we’ve been doing in class.
PE will be on a Thursday and a Friday. Children will be developing skills in gymnastics, tri-golf, skipping and outdoor and adventurous activities. Please ensure pupils have the correct PE kit on those days.
Spellings are no longer sent home because we have changed our spelling policy. If you would like to work on your child’s spellings with them, please ask them to record their five chosen spellings in their reading record on Mondays. Reading at home is very important. We expect children to read daily at home and that they are heard read by an adult at home at least three times a week. Each time a child reads, please remember to make a record.
Children learnt about what the Fire Service do, Fire Safety and what to do if there is a fire in their home.

Could you try and find these words :-
Here is a copy of the Darwin Values tick list that we cover in Year 3 and 4. We are creating a portfolio for children as they move through school. We are asking parents to send in photos. certificates, awards that show the new skills or activities children have taken part in. This could be photos of them on their bike, scooter, roller skates, or of them cooking or sewing. It might be charity events they have been involved in. Any questions regarding this, please ask.
