Summer Term 2018
Welcome back! I can't believe it is the Summer Term already!
This term our topic is The Scented Garden.
So let's go tiptoe through the tulips as your senses discover the blooming foliage and enchanting fragrances of flowers and herbs. Round and round the mulberry bush we go, planting bulbs and seeds, and then watch them grow beneath sunshine and showers.
Explore the astounding world of the scented garden, but be careful, there are some wild and dangherous plants out there that do astonishing things - just don't touch!
The children in Eagles have already planted some broad beans and sweet peas. The beans are growing very rapidly! I wonder if they will end up reaching the sky? I hope we don't meet any unfriendly giants! We are making close observations of the bean plants and we are watering and measuring them regularly to encourage them to keep on growing.
Towards the end of this term have organised a trip to view the gardens at Doddington Hall where we will also get to take part in a hands on herb workshop. Make sure you look out for the letter, with further details, nearer the time of the visit.
For more information about our topic see the Summer Term Scented Garden Overview below.
There are lots of other exciting events happening this term, such as the Summer Fair where all the children have the opportunity to try out their country dancing skills.
Now that the warmer weather is hopefully on its way, please make sure your child has their P.E.kit in school, so we can pop outside and do our games lesson in the fresh air when it is sunny. P.E will be each Thursday afternoon.
As I know you are already aware, the children in Eagles will all be doing their SATs asessments during May. Please can you help by making sure your child gets plenty of sleep and encourage them to eat a healthy diet, so they feel ready to concentrate and do their best on the days we do the tests. Thank you for your support.
Homework will be set on Friday and must be in by Wednesday morning please. In addition to the homework, we would like your child to practise their reading and spellings at home everyday. When you hear them read please sign their reading record. Regular reading at home will help your child become more fluent and confident which will help them in all areas of the curriculum.
