Mrs Burnett, Mrs Green are the class teachers and Mrs Jowett and Miss Foley are our teaching assistants.
Hello and welcome to the Autumn term 2!
We have another full and exciting term ahead of us in our count down to Christmas! This includes our ‘History off the page’ week where we will become a Victorian class for the day and a STEM week – full of investigative Science!
Just to remind you, Mrs Green is the class teacher on Mondays and Tuesdays and Mrs Burnett will be teaching Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Mrs Foley and Mrs Jowett are our TAs supporting in Neptune class.
Our topic this term is called ‘Hard times’ and we will be moving on to look at World War One. We are using our knowledge to help answer out Key Concept Question: how did the changes during the late 18th/early 19th century change life in Britain today? We will be reading Michael Morpurgo’s illustrated picture book of his popular novel :War Horse. Please take a look at the medium-term plan for more details on what else we will be covering.
PE is every Wednesday with Coach Harry and Outdoor Learning on Thursday afternoons. Pleased make sure your child brings appropriate clothing for both lessons, particularly Outdoor Learning as we will try and get outside where possible (kit list has been sent home).
Homework has been given out along with spellings which will be loaded onto Seesaw. Please ensure you read with your child every day and log the reading in the reading record book.
Weekly homework includes: practice spellings, complete at least one Mathletics task each week; complete one piece of homework from the homework sheet and practice times tables on TTrockstars as much as possible. Spelling test will be on Monday and the dates have been written on the sheet. Logins for your child’s accounts can be found in the back of the reading record book but please do let us know if you have any issues logging on. Any homework completed can be uploaded to Seesaw as can anything for Show and Tell which will be on a Friday.
Thank you to everyone who has helped and offered to help look after Coco, Cookie and Hazel (the gerbils!). We love looking after them at school and they’re more social after spending the weekends with your families.
