The Eagles class is taught by Mr Aspinall and supported by Mrs Adams.
Welcome back to everyone for this new year at Willowcroft. I'm looking forward to a wonderful year with the Eagles and I hope they enjoy having me as their teacher.
In maths, we will be starting with place value and aiming to begin working on addition and subtraction by the end of the term. The children will be learning how to read and write numbers up to ten million, about decimals, multiplying and dividing by multiples of 10, rounding and how to solve practical problems based on these skills.
In Literacy, we are reading the fantastic book called Trash. It's a very exciting story about three children and the adventure they have when they find a treasure. We'll be practising many story-writing and story-telling skills as well as writing our own narratives based on the book.
We have a whole school topic in Term 1 called 'One World' and in Year 5 and 6 we will be focusing on our local area. Specifically, how it relates to the wider world. We'll be looking to the future a lot and thinking about what life looks like for Didcot in the year 2050.
Wednesday 10th September - Meet the teacher.
Thursday 24th October - End of Term.
P.E. is on Tuesdays. Please make sure that children have their P.E. kits in school.
Homework will consist of spellings and MyMaths. These will be set every Friday and expected to be completed by the following Friday. Children should also be regularly reading in their own time. Reading is an essential life skill and regular practise as a child will help set them up for life.
Please feel free to pop in either in the morning or after school if you have any concerns. I will be more than happy to help in any way possible.
