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

This half term, we will be writing complaint letters, rain forest poetry and explanation texts about plants. 

We have looked at the features of a complaint letter, boxed up a complaint letters, and started using the features to write short sections.

This week, we will be planning our own complaint letter and writing it.

 

Maths

This half term we will be looking at coordinates and statistics. 

We will be starting looking at reading and plotting coordinates this week.

Topic

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!

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