Venus class

Our Year R class

Welcome to Venus class. The class teacher is Mrs Susie Winchester and the teaching assistant is Miss Court. Ms Helen Cresswell teaches Venus class on Mondays.

Wow! It’s Term 4 already and our exciting new topic for this term is Wheels, Wings and Flying Things. We have seen how much the children this year have loved playing with the bikes, cars and trains and have therefore planned the topic to suit their interests. We will be looking at a variety of transport; old and new, real and fantasy and creating some of our own. We will be finding out what the first train looked like, who invented the first aeroplane and looking at Tim Peake’s space mission. We will also be sharing our experiences of travel and reading a range of books related to transport such as The Train Ride, Giraffe on a Bicycle and  The Naughty Bus and working together to create some of our own versions. Do you have a tractor, digger, motorbike, dump truck, tandem, mini steam engine, or a unicycle? Or any other interesting vehicle or mode of transport?, If anyone has any of these and would be willing to bring them to school for the children to look at and ask questions about we would be very grateful. Please do let me know. In Phonics we will be continuing to work on the phase 3 digraphs and trigraphs; recognising and reading them and using them within our writing. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and see me.

Mrs Winchester
