Spring Term 2019

Happy New Year to you all! We have had a great first week back. The children have been settled and worked hard.

This term, we are taking part in a whole-school writing project, based on the book, ‘The Matchbox Diary’ by Paul Fleischman. We look forward to seeing what lovely ideas this inspires in the children’s writing.

In Maths, our focus again will be the times tables, particularly the 7s and 12s. But the children should continue to practise all their tables at home.

Our topic this half-term is Rainforests, which has begun to excite the children already. Look out for ‘Creative Homework’ coming home soon.

In Science, we will be studying ‘States of Matter’, learning about and investigating changes in material.

Swimming continues on Mondays, and this term PE lessons are on Wednesdays, as we have a Tag Rugby coach in. The children should bring suitable clothing for outdoor PE lessons.

Please ensure your child continues to learn Spellings, which are taken home on Thursdays and tested the following Thursday. In addition, whilst the children are making good progress in their reading, they always benefit from reading at home independently and being heard read regularly. Reading books come home every night and should be brought in to school every day.

Later this term, Year 4 will be performing a play. We will welcome help with costumes nearer the time (these should be fairly easy!).

Thank you for your continued support.

Dallas Campbell to visit Glynwood’s “Bumblebee Discovery”

Mrs Allom and the Eco club sent for information about "The Bumblebee Discovery". We decided it was quite tricky and so the Children in Year 6 are taking part in the challenge to identify different types of bees they see. One lucky school who is taking part was chosen...

Hunting for bugs in Year 4.

As part of our Science topic, we went hunting for bugs, to see which ones live in different habitats within the school grounds. We then brought some bugs back into the classroom and used information sheets to identify them. We found woodlice, ants, slugs, spiders,...
