Welcome to Thinkers 2021 - 2022
Welcome back to a new and exciting year in Thinkers. We had a busy but productive year already, and we have got got lots planned for you as we move into our final term for this academic year.
'To Infinity and Beyond!' This half term, pupils will be studying the history of space, and the race to be the first country to reach the moon. Your child will know about the Apollo 11 moon landing - who the astronauts were, where they set off from and how they managed to get to the moon.

Reading and Home Learning
Reading at home and sharing a book with your child is really important! Your child should spend around 10-15 minutes each night sharing a book with you and then asking them questions based on their book. Why, How do you know and Explain are excellent questions to use to get your child really thinking about what they have read. See below as well for different questions you could be asking your child.
Your child will also bring home spellings every half term, covering all of the weeks, which they will need to practise ready for their spelling test each Monday. Other home learning, includes Maths and English activities which will focus on pre-learning activities to support them ready for their learning the next week, from the learning they missed out on the previous year. These will be shared on Google Classroom on a Tuesday and this needs to be completed and returned by Monday of the following week.
