This is Ollie the octopus. He is the Green Class mascot, and his tentacles represent our Learning Goals! Members of Green Class need to do the Learning Goals to get a sticker! After they have collected three stickers, Mrs Burrow or Mr Broadbent will exchange them for a large sticker, and put their name in the Good Learners box ready for the celebration assembly!

 

Our learning goals are...

  • Communication
  • Cooperation
  • Resilience
  • Perseverance
  • Enquiry
  • Pride
  • Respect
  • Reflection
  • Organisation 

 

 

English

This half term, we will be writing explanation texts and diary recounts.

In Green Class, we have started looking at explanation texts and their features, as well as using causal conjunctions in sentences.

These next few weeks, we will be planning our explanation text about how a plant grows and drafting it.

 

 

Maths

This half term we will be finishing off time, looking at money and revising the four operations.

These next two weeks, we will look at converting units of time, days of the week, months of the year and decades and centuries, as well as adding and subtracting money.

Topic

Last half term - Brazil and the Rain forest!

Before we broke up for Easter, we had a very exciting visitor - Ella from Zoolab! She brought in lots of Rain forest creatures for us to meet! We enjoyed meeting and gently touching the millipede, the rats and the snake. We even had chance to look at a scorpion!

This half term, we will be using maps to locate rain forests, and compare Brazil to our country. We may even have time for a carnival!

This half term - Comparing and contrasting Brazil with the U.K.

This half term, we will be using out gained knowledge of Brazil to compare it with our local environment. We will be looking at human and physical features of two different places and creating a fact file about these.

Your child has been given their Mathletics  and Bug Club passwords next week.
