We will be going on our trip to Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet on Wednesday. In preparation for this, please help your child to research what children used to wear in Victorian times. It would be lovely if the children could come to school in Victorian style clothing. Do encourage your child to be involved in deciding what they could wear. Please ensure that your child has warm clothing and a warm coat as some activities take place outside or in draughty workshops.
Please help your child to spell the words on the final two lists from their spelling sheet. As an extra challenge for children who can spell these already, here are some words your child will need to write during our Victorians topic:

Please continue to read with your child. In class, we are learning how to take notes. Please encourage your child to summarise what they have read about.This skill will help them to identify the key information in the text.
As there are two teachers who work with your child, we have decided that one of us will be in the hall for private discussions about your child and the other will be in the classroom where we will be available to answer general questions about our teaching techniques and the curriculum in general.
