Happy New Year!
I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas and New year and are ready to get back into the swing of things! This year we are starting topics on dragons in English, Journeys in RE, and learning about the Countries and counties in the UK. We will be looking at how to keep our bodies healthy and learning some orienteering skills. In maths we will be focusing on division and multiplication and how to apply these skills to solving maths puzzles.
It's going to be a busy term!
WELCOME TO THE JUNIORS!
All of the children have settled in well to the juniors and seem ready to tackle the challenges that will face them this year.
The first topic we will be covering this term is the Stone Age. We will be writing stone age diaries in English, learning about the formation of rocks, soil and fossils in science and turning our classroom walls into cave art!
We are currently looking at homes in RE and how we can make a house a home. The children have also written recipes for a happy home.
In maths we are focussing on understanding place value using concrete resources and using this knowledge to answer place value problems. This will then help us to fully understand the next addition and subtraction block of work.
In our classroom we have the lovely Mrs Loveless working on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to support the children and help run any interventions we need.
We also welcome a new face to our class. Miss Murphy is a TA student working with us on a Monday and Tuesday. The children have already taken her under their wing!
Please make sure you have joined the class dojo via the app as I will be posting updates, pictures and sending any information that you may need. It is also an opportunity to send any messages that you need to pass onto me.
As ever, if you have any worries or concerns then please do not hesitate to speak to any of the classroom staff.
