Welcome to Moles!

Welcome to Moles class!
We are so pleased to see you all back in school- we have missed you. I hope that you all had a fantastic summer and are looking forward to moving into Key Stage 2!
We have a very exciting topic to start with for our first term back; we will be asking the question ‘Why does the earth rock and roll?’. We will be looking at volcanoes, earthquakes, tornados and floods around the world and what causes them. We will also take a look at various rocks and their properties as well as studying fossils to see what they can tell us about the past!
In English, we will be reading ‘Escape from Pompeii’ by Christina Balit which links closely to our topic! We will be focusing on our inference, deduction and vocabulary skills in our English lessons. We will also begin to look at identifying and using fronted adverbials to improve our writing!
In addition to this, we will be having a big focus on reading and all children will have an opportunity to read with myself or another adult in the class. We will also have an afternoon each week 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 place value and securing our knowledge of the four operations. 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 take place on a Tuesday. Please make sure that your child comes into school wearing their PE kit.
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!
