    Spring Term 2020

    Topic – Our World and Beyond

    Welcome back to Monnow Class after the Christmas break. 

    We will be learning about our planet as well as those in our galaxy.  Our explorers that we will be focussing on this term are Tim Peak and Neil Armstrong.  It’s set to be an action-packed term. If you have any expertise in or resources on this topic, please let us know as we would value your contributions.

    Kind regards

    Mrs Griffith and Mrs Betteridge

    Things to remember:

    Mondays and Tuesdays - P.E: The children will need their P.E kit and black joggers and trainers for outdoor P.E.

    Homework will be given on a Monday to hand in the following Monday.

    Spellings will be given out on a Friday and we will do a little test the following Friday to see how well the children have retained the spellings.


    We are incredibly passionate about reading and we know how many doors it opens for children. We will endeavour to hear the children read on an individual basis at least once a week. Reading books will be changed on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. As you know reading at home is hugely beneficial to children’s development and progress, particularly if it becomes an enjoyable part of their everyday routine. We understand that sometimes it’s tricky to find the time or motivation from your child – but we would love you to read / share anything you can – comics, newspapers, picture books as well as their school reading book.
