Hello parents of all those little Hawthornies out there! I hope you are all having or have had a wonderful Easter break. It's Mr Frewin here, reporting in and raring to go for the new term. Firstly, apologies no update for the last week of term, it was a pretty hectic end to the term for myself, I had two funerals to attend so I didn't get a a chance to upload anything. Briefly addressing this, the class did an amazing job completing their space posters which will be up on display for you to come and admire at your leisure, please do not hesitate to ask.
On to the new term.
We have a very busy week to start us off. The first thing on Monday morning we will have a visit from Carole the singing lady to see how we are progressing with our singing. Please make sure your little ones vocal-chords are suitably tuned and ready to go.
In English we will be starting off by looking at the fun and lighthearted works of Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre prior to them visiting us on Wednesday 27th April. We will start by reading 'The legend of Kevin' before we embark on writing our own short versions of the story.
In maths we will be starting off by recapping our timestables and number bonds to 100. This should set us up nicely for tackling the tricky concept of decimals over the term.
In History, we will be drawing on our knowledge of how the Romans and Saxons invaded Britain and make comparisons to the Viking invasion.
Just writing this down is filling me with excitement and I can't wait to get going this week.
Finally, I have some sad news. Mr Evemy will not be returning for the summer term and as I am writing this we have not made a plan for his successor or other provision. As soon as I know anything I will let you know ASAP. Personally I am very sad about this as we had a good working relationship and after a shaky start, he forged a strong and healthy bond with the class. I wish him al the best in his next endeavours.
Please come and say hello if you see me tomorrow, one smile is worth ten easter eggs of happiness.
