Here is a fantastic website to help children with maths skills.

http://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

http://www.ictgames.com/magicSquare/index.html

Please visit and encourage your child to play the games. The games work on laptops and I pads. 

Homework will consist of weekly spellings, multiplication facts and reading. Any additional work that is sent home will be tailored to the individual needs of your child.

PE kits need to be in school everyday and we will send it home when it needs washing. Children will have PE on a Wednesday and Thursday. This term we will focus on multi skills and gymnastics. 

We always encourage the children drink throughout the day, please can you make sure your child has a named water bottle in school.

Children are able to change their reading book everyday within school time. 

Show and Tell is a great way for children to show speaking and listening skills. Show and Tell is on a Friday afternoon and your child will be advised in advance by letter when it is their turn.  Individual presentations may be done in a variety of ways, such as a collage, display or a piece of writing. This term we would like the children to share information about important people. This can be a famous person or someone that they think is important to them.  

If you wish to email any electronic presentations, please send them to Mrs Thompson at Clare.thompson@dunholme.lincs.sch.uk

  

Reading in unusual places activity 

To inspire enjoyment for reading, we are encouraging children to send in a photograph of them reading in unusual places.  This will then be displayed in our reading area within the classroom and a competition will be held to see which is the first class to have a photograph from each child.   Please send your photographs to clare.thompson@dunholme.lincs.sch.uk

We look forward to seeing them.
