Welcome back, we hope you have all had a good summer and are looking forward to year six! Pupils in Eagle Class have a busy few terms ahead: plenty of learning and fun to be had! We will update the website regularly so look out for additions in the Eagle Class section.
A quick reminder; PE kit should be named and in a bag which remains in school. This should include a dark blue or black tracksuit which can be worn outside when the weather is a little fresh! PE for Term 1 will be on a Monday and a Thursday. If, for any reason, your child cannot take part in a PE lesson we would appreciate a note, just to explain the reasons why.
Homework will continue as last term with a grid of 9 activities to complete a selection of across the term. Alongside this Times Table Rock-stars and Spelling Shed will be set and an expectation to read at least 4 times a week.
Forest School will be every other week, on a Wednesday, and children will need to be fully equipped for any weather conditions (this should include thick socks, gloves and a hat). Wellies are also a must please. Walking boots are not suitable during the winter as the entrance to Backhouse Woods can get very wet and muddy. Please also bring a water bottle and a snack but no plastic rubbish please. Where possible encourage them to get themselves ready for forest school days!
Alongside the residential we have exciting trips to Dover Castle and Dungerness Power-station lined up across the next few weeks. We will send out further information on these nearer the time.
As you are hopefully aware our first topic is WWII. We have already recieved excellent quality homework. If anyone has any good resources from the war or has any knowledge about Aldington during WWII please let us know. Thanks for all the bits that have come in already, they really are enriching our topic.
