Welcome to Jupiter class. Mrs Burnett is the class teacher, Miss Unsworth is the maternity teacher, Mrs Vasu, Mrs Sparkes and Mrs Barnes are our teaching assistants.
Welcome back! It is lovely to see all of the children after such a long time.
Jupiter class are also welcoming Miss Unsworth who will be teaching them whilst Mrs Burnett is on maternity leave. We also have Mrs Vasu and Mrs Barnes helping us with our learning this year.
In terms 1 & 2 we will be focussing our topic lessons on World War II. We will be looking at the reasons why the war broke out, the Blitz, evacuation, women in war, the Home Front and rationing.
We will be reading Goodnight Mr Tom and linking it to our English and topic lessons. As well as developing comprehension, we will be using the text to write character and setting descriptions, diaries, letters and newspapers.
In Science we will be looking at Properties of Material, which will include how materials can change state. We will be investigating and testing different types of materials and classifying them using scientific vocabulary.
Please encourage your child to read every day and sign their planner which they are required to bring in every day. The children will receive team points for reading at home if their planners signed by an adult at home. Please also use the planner as a form of communication with the adults in the classroom.
There will be more details to come regarding Homework.
PE is currently on a Thursday afternoon and will be on one other day in during the week which will be confirmed as soon as possible. We will let you know if/when outdoor learning will take place, please do not bring change of clothes/shoes and leave them at school. Please keep checking correspondence home for more details.
In order to keep everything as safe as possible (and our corridors clear) could children only please bring a school bag if absolutely necessary. As they are leaving pencil cases in school, there should be minimal items to bring to and fro.
We are very excited to see what this term and year holds!
Mrs Burnett, Miss Unsworth, Mrs Vasu and Mrs Barnes
