This year the Foxes are being taught by Miss Miller (Class Teacher). Miss Thomas is our fantastic Teaching Assistant and she is in class with us everyday. We are very friendly and invite you to pop in for a chat if you have any queries or concerns - the classroom door is open from 8.30am everyday and Miss Miller will be available to speak to until the bell goes at 8.40am!
Welcome back to Term 3, we hope you enjoyed the Christmas holidays and that the children are well refreshed and ready to learn!
Our whole school topic this term is called ‘When I grow up…’ so we will be thinking hard about the sorts of careers that the children may be interested in. We have lots of exciting visitors coming in to talk to the children about their job and what it entails. There will be a focus on Art and Science during this term as well as our regular hard work in Maths and Literacy. The children will be continuing to develop their multiplication and division skills whilst writing some exciting biographies in Literacy. We will be finishing the term with a focus on reading, writing and performing poetry.
PE is every Tuesday afternoon but children must have their full PE kit in school EVERYDAY. PE kit must include a house colour t-shirt, shorts/jogging bottoms and suitable footwear ie. trainers/ plimsolls.
Our last swimming lesson is on Thursday 18th January.
Homework is given out every Wednesday and should be returned by the following Monday. Each week, homework will consist of 7 spellings from the Year 5/6 spelling list as well as an additional worksheet usually based on our Maths/Literacy learning for that week.
All children should bring their Reading Record back into school every day as we use these in our Guided Reading lessons. It is important that the children read regularly at home as well as at school, recording their efforts in their Reading Records, to be checked in class.
Children should bring a bag/ book bag into school everyday. This encourages the children to be more independent and organise their belongings, as well as transport letters and homework back and forth without them being lost or damaged.
The Body Coach- Live Workouts!
This week we have been taking part in The Body Coach's live school workouts as part of his mission to get over 1 million children exercising daily! So far the children have really enjoyed the 20 minute HIIT sessions and the teachers had fun joining in too. There have been quite a few achey legs this week!
Here are a few photos of our fun so far...
