Welcome to our class page!
Mrs Winterson (Class Teacher) Mrs Avis (Teaching Assistant)
Well I have seen some signs of Spring whilst being out and about this half term I hope you have all managed to get out and about over the break. I can't wait to hear all about your adventures.
A new half term only means one thing... A new topic! Dinosaur Planet. How can we beat the last one?
Stomp, crash, roar! Watch out – there are dinosaurs about! Yes, that’s right, we’re travelling back in time to the age of the dinosaurs. This half term, we’ll visit a museum, look closely at ancient fossils and study reptiles to understand how dinosaurs may have lived and eventually died out. We’ll learn about the great fossil hunter, Mary Anning, and follow in her footsteps, studying dinosaur teeth and bones to find out what dinosaurs liked to eat. Learning dinosaur names, creating puzzling riddles, writing fantastic fact files and creating exciting dinosaur stories are some of the other activities we’ll be involved in this half term. We’ll also use our artistic skills to make model dinosaurs and to design dinosaur landscapes. At the end of our project, we’ll invite you to a dinosaur party to share our knowledge with you. We’ll invent some dinosaur games to play and entertain you with our wonderful dinosaur music.
Our P.E. days are Monday and Thursday. PE kits should comprise of black shorts, coloured house tee - shirt and pumps. Trainers , jogging bottoms and a sweater for colder days when outdoor PE is being taught. PE kits remain in school in one bag until each half term, where they will be sent home to be laundered.
Your child will be given a new reading book based on their own reading ability for them to read at home with an adult, plus a book to be shared together from the library. Reading journals and books need to be in school everyday.
As well as daily reading, your child will be given a piece of homework on Thursday to be handed back in the following Thursday. It will be either an English, Maths or an activity related to the topic.
There are always home learning ideas too that might interest you. These are attached to this page.
