This week saw Ravens class start Forest School with Mr Jones. The children have been learning about fires and fire safety.
In the photos below the children are identifying and arranging a suitable area for the Year 6 fire circle. This area was very overgrown and Mr Jones kindly offered to clear the ground so that next week the children can start developing the area further, making the fire pit in preparation for when they start learning how to make their own fires. Bring on the s'mores!
I will update our weekly Forest School journey here so please check back for more photos.
Welcome to Raven Class
This year the Ravens will be taught by Mrs Brown and supported by Mrs Epton. We are a Year 6 class and Mrs Brown has an exciting year ahead planned for us. We have an open door policy and if for any reason you need to talk to either myself or Mrs Epton, you will always find me outside class at 8.30am. Please come and have a chat and say hello.
I will hand out spellings each week and I expect the children to make a real effort to learn them. They will have a spelling challenge at the end of the week and we always try to up our scores. My Maths homework is set every week. If you lose your log in, please come and see me and I will print you out another. The children count daily, and I would really appreciate your help with their times tables. The more they count at home, the easier it becomes in class. Alongside My Maths, there are some excellent resources available on BBC Bitesize. I have attached the link to the bottom of this page.
Term 1 - Health and Happiness
We will be starting the year how we mean to go on, healthy body, healthy mind, healthy life. This will be a whole school topic and we aim to get everybody on board. There will be fitness days and mindfullness lessons. During Maths we will be revising our four main methods and place value. English will consist of story telling and writing our own version of a well known book.
PE this term will be on a Wednesday afternoon with Mrs Parish. The children will need to be prepared to be on the field, so I advise you to pack them with indoor and outdoor trainers. In the colder months we will still go outside where possible so please include track suit bottoms and a jumper.
On Thursday afternoons we are continuing yoga and mindfulness lessons. I hope these will be invaluable to the children's well being and I will keep you updated on our progress.
I do love to take lots of photos, so please pop back to our page as often as possible to see what we have been up to.
