Learn by Hearts: Each week, on a Friday, the children will look at maths facts to learn. We will then test these facts in class the following week. The children will then continue to learn these facts for an additional week- hopefully bettering their score from the previous week. At the end of the 2nd week, the children will have new facts to learn

Learning goals:

 

 

 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, their name will be put into the Good Learners box ready for the celebration assembly!

Our learning goals are...

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

This terms learning:

Topic:  The Roman Empire. Together we'll produce work around what life was like in these different times and compare and contrast these times to the modern day.

 

English: This week in English the children have been looking at how the boomtastics (rhyme, alliteration, similes and metaphors) are used in poetry. Next week we will start to look at diary writing.

Maths: In maths, we have started to look at place value. We have been placing numbers on number lines and reminding ourselves of the importance of thousands, hundreds, tens and ones.

Science: We are about to start looking at light for our science topic.

Our science topic is definitely a fun one with loads of experiments and investigations!

Weekly Routine:

We have 2 sessions of PE a week, our first session is on a Monday, where it is an outdoor lesson for a games orientated session. In addition to this, on a Friday, we will have our indoor session focusing on circuit training.

Unfortunately there is no swimming in September.

Homework is set each week on Mathletics (for the maths homework) and English will be set on Purple Mash. 

Each pupil will have a  spelling list consisting of up to 10 words to learn for the following week, throughout the following week each pupil will get tested then receive a new list to be tested the following week.

 Reading books and planners should be signed by adults and presented on Mondays and Thursdays. However, due to the current situation, there will be no reading books going home at present. Children will have access to reading books within the classroom.
