Welcome back everybody; we hope you had a lovely break. Welcome as well to our class page where you can find out about our class, what we are learning, fun activities to try at home, winners of our weekly and termly awards and much more.
Our class teacher is Mrs Willis and we are very lucky to have four lovely Teaching Assistants: Mrs Birkett, Mrs Leat, Mrs Holdway and Mr Merriman. Miss Usher is also joining us as well as a Trainee Teacher; a very exciting year for her. We are all really looking forward to a great first term this year and can't wait to get started.
Our second theme of this year is 'What a Wonderful World' where we will be looking at several different aspects of our beautiful world. This will remain for Terms 3 and 4. It is a Geography based theme on geographical features from around the world.
Our new theme will include looking at Sikh stories in RE, Animals and Humans in Science and famous artists in Art.
Lots of fun to be had this term.
For Years 5 and 6 , Home Learning will be put on class pages on a Friday and spellings will need to be learned by the following Friday. Home Learning will include weekly spellings, reading and a termly project challenge.
Remember reading remains very important for everyone; please read 5 times a week (as agreed in the Home School Agreement) and ask your parents to initial your Contact Book to show you have read. We always love to see how much you have read. J
Word Wonder Wall
In addition to this, (in class) we have a weekly spelling challenge in Upper School, where the children are challenged to learn an additional five words taken from the Year 5/6 Spelling List which will be on our Word Wonder Wall. These are all tricky words and, so far, the children are doing a great job in challenging themselves. If they get 5 out of 5, on 3 separate occasions, the children will get a dip in my goody bag!
