Welcome to the Falcons Class!
In Falcons class we are taught by Mrs Sienkiewicz (Mrs S) and supported by Mrs Livesey and Mr Aspinall. We are a year 5/6 class who thoroughly enjoy learning and are always looking for the next challenge. Falcons use their growth mindsets to help them take the next steps in their education by always being positive and determined.
Term 4: The Tudors
Term 4 is all about The Tudors. We are going to be finding out about the Tudor Rose and creating our own artistic representations of them. The Falcons will also learn all about Henry VIII and his six wives. Using all the information we learn, we will create our very own version of a Horrible Histories non-fiction text book. This will include: writing diary entries from Henry VIII about each of his wives; finishing a poem entitled 'The Laboratory' by Robert Browning; looking at and writing their own Shakespearean play; and even drawing a comic strip, Horrible Histories style.
Bits to Remember
It is incredibly important that the children in Falcons class read everyday. We ask that they bring their current reading book and reading record into school everyday so that they can be used during guided reading sessions. Reading records will be collected in on a Friday.
PE kits should be brought in at the beginning of every term and preferably left in school throughout the term. We have two sessions of PE each week but we also run the daily mile every day so a good pair of trainers is essential.
In Term 4, Falcons will have Forest School every Monday morning. Please can you help ensure that your child has a full Forest School kit including welly boots.
Each week the children will be asked to log on to their my maths page and have a go at the weekly tasks. A letter has been sent home with your child's login and password.
