Newsletter March 2016

Parents in Touch

Dear [NAME]
Can you believe that it is already March?  We can now look forward to Spring and perhaps some sunshine. In this newsletter we have included maths work on compass 'Bearings KS3', work on 'Reading and comparing poems' for KS3 as well as 'Family spellings KS2'. These and the many other worksheet suggestions are sure to be useful to you and your children. They will enjoy learning and making good progress.

Money problems are always useful as are percentages. Real life maths problems give pupils confidence and the Holiday maths worksheet is fun.
Antonyms and synonyms are useful in written work as are the use of English skills. Reading and comparing poems gives children the opportunity to express their own thoughts and opinions.
Fantasy play is enjoyable for children and is excellent at increasing their vocabulary. The Hungry Caterpillar is a favourite story so work on this will be popular.
Family spellings will be useful to all children as good spelling is essential. Use the phonic sound charts together to reinforce learning. Learn together the consonant blends with r and test each other afterwards.
Carbon and plastics are common examination topics. These suggestions will help give pupils confidence as will the Test your science worksheet.

Postcard writing is enjoyable. It is a good idea to actually post the cards and hopefully receive replies. Children love water so the water lesson plan will be useful.
Take a look at our super Giveaways for this month. We have a superb security camera to give you peace of mind at home and when away. Onto books and first - lots of excellent non-fiction books: Living Things and Their Habitats; Minibeast Adventures; Why Space Matters to Me and Little Guide to Science. Creative children will enjoy the fabulous set of Creativity books, Fingerprint Activities and the Little Button Craft books. For young ones, we have I'll Wait Mr Panda and Rabbit's Bad Habit. For older ones, there's The Double Axe. It's a bumper selection so don't miss out!
