Welcome to Squirrels!
Class teacher: Mrs Hart / Mrs Pope
Learning support: Mrs Sturdy
Welcome back to school Squirrels!!
I hope you have had a great summer and looking forward to being part of the Squirrels class. I am really looking forward to working with you and helping you settle back into the school routine. It might feel a bit strange to start off with but I am sure we will soon get back into our routine.
Our topic for this half term is ‘Why does the Earth Rock and Roll?’ we will be learning about a variety of natural disasters – what causes them and the aftermath.
Our book we will be studying in English is ‘Escape from Pompeii’ by Christina Balit. We will be using the text alongside ‘The Write Stuff’ to create some amazing writing using different techniques. Reading is going to be big focus for this term with the children with part of the week dedicated to reading activities and reading for pleasure. Please make sure that your child brings their reading book to school everyday.
In Mathematics we will be focusing on number, place value and the 4 operations (+, - , x, ÷ ) as well as improving our knowledge of times tables. Times tables are so important and extra practise at home would help greatly.
Mrs Hart will be teaching you for the majority of the week with Mrs Pope teaching the class on a Friday. Mrs Sturdy will be supporting the class all week.
PE will take place on a Tuesday afternoon with Coaches Unlimited. Please make sure that your child comes to school in their PE kit on a Tuesday morning.
Forest School will be on a Thursday for Squirrels Class this half term, children are to come to school in Forest School clothes with a change of footwear please – a reminder text will be sent on a Wednesday.
Do not forget to check out Purple Mash for any ‘to dos’ that have been set by Mrs Hart. Login details can be found in your Reading Record books.
Keep checking back to see all the amazing things we are doing.
#ethusiasm, #reasoning and #focus.
