Welcome to Moles class!
After a well-deserved, relaxing break, we are ready to get stuck in to our new topic in Moles class. We will be studying the Victorians and asking, ‘Were they revolutionary?’. We will kick this topic off with an exciting Inspiration Day where we will be travelling back in time and becoming Victorian children at school. We will be learning about the reign of Queen Victoria, researching a variety of inventions and understanding what everyday life was like for the Victorians.
In English, we will be reading ‘Daisy saves the Day’ by Shirley Hughes which links closely to our topic! We will continue to focus on our inference, deduction and vocabulary skills in our English lessons. We will be using the FANTASTICS, GRAMMARTASTICS AND BOOMTASTICS from the Write Stuff in our writing to make improvements and to make our work stand out! In addition to this, we will continue to have a big focus on reading and all children will have an opportunity to read with either myself or another adult in the class. Each week there will be a reading afternoon dedicated to reading and comprehension skills. Please ensure that your child has a reading book with them each day.
In mathematics, we will be focusing on the four operations and using the appropriate method to help us to solve problems. We will continue to consolidate our times tables knowledge but please ensure that your child gets lots of practise at home as this will really support their learning.
PE lessons will continue to take place on a Tuesday. Please make sure that your child comes into school wearing their PE kit.
Forest School with Mrs Hart will be on a Thursday for Moles class this half term which is very exciting! Children should to come to school in appropriate Forest School clothes with a change of footwear. A reminder text will be sent out on a Wednesday.
Spellings will be given out each Friday ready for a test on the following Friday.
Keep checking back on our page to look at all of the amazing things that we are getting up to!
