Welcome back to St Mark’s C of E Primary School Emerald Class

The holiday season flew by so quickly and we are now in our second term.

The autumn term was none other than amazing. The children have been fantastically friendly and have returned happily to class with confidence and a spring in their step. The team are looking forward to working with the children this term and helping them flourish.

Over this spring half term, we have chosen a topic that all children are interested in…  Dinosaurs! This topic will give us the opportunity to learn about the lives of these prehistoric creatures and how they relate to the animals we have on our planet today.  It gives us the chance to explore many artifacts like dinosaur bones, fossils and ‘real’ pretend dinosaur eggs.

We will be getting creative when designing our own dinosaurs, building dinosaur dioramas and experimenting with volcanoes!

In numeracy we will use our topic to help us when measuring dinosaur footprints, counting spikes, teeth and toes or creating data about dinosaurs.

We will continue to enjoy lots of literacy opportunities to help develop the children’s communication, language and literacy through discussions, stories and games.

Phonics at St Mark’s C of E Primary School is still an important part in the children’s reading and writing.  Please continue to support your child in this process by revisiting all the books, sounds and words that have already been taught.

We will be having PE lessons every Monday, the children’s PE kit will be needed during the second half of the term.

Please continue to check our Reception news page and Home Learning page for the timetables and some great learning activities for you to enhance your child’s learning journey at home.
