Happy new year! We welcome you back to a very magical start of the Spring term.

This term, our class topic is ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone’ We have Mrs O’Mahoney and Mrs Suffolk as our TA in class.

Please find below an overview of the topic with some ideas of how you can help at home.

The  launch of  this topic will be a film night, where we will be watching Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. We will be using this theme to inspire creative writing and develop a love of literacy.

You can help your child this term by reading with them daily. As you can appreciate, the more that a child reads the better their chances of success. There is a reward system in place that will encourage the children to read as much as possible. You should question them about the story to help them to develop a deeper understanding and make it an enjoyable experience.

Your child will receive spellings each week to learn at home. Please practice these with your child as much as possible. Work with them on their timetables as much as possible to help them prepare for the government times table assessment at the end of year 4. In class, the children will be assessed and set individual targets to work on. Please encourage your children to play on TTRockstars as this has shown to be an effective way to help the children to learn. Each Friday, your child will have a times table and spelling test. 

Our homework will be set each Friday on Google Classroom and needs to be submitted by the following Friday. Google login reminders will be sent out in due course. We will be using a grid with different options of homework to help parents to balance their work and time effectively. Please encourage your child to log on to this each week.

P.E. will be on a Monday and the children need to come into school dressed in their P.E. kit. 

Following our healthy school policy, we ask that children bring only water in their bottles and that a healthy snack is provided for break times. Reading books need to be brought in every day as well as a coat in the colder/wetter months.

If you have any questions then please feel free to contact the office at hello@whitemoor.org.uk.


Kind regards


Mr Gray
