Class 4 week 2

I am so impressed with Class 4 this week! There has been some brilliant learning taking place, we've pushed ourselves and used our learning powers - even my brain is aching!! 

Everyone is already developing a brilliant attitude to learning to learning, perfect for Key Stage 2 and I couldn't be more proud! We have been developing place value, writing descriptively, learning about The Old Testament and learning about the first stage of the Stone Age. 

Well done class 4!

Please remember homework is due on Monday as well as our spelling test. 

Please ensure SNACK BOXES are labelled - there are lots being left over!

Autumn 1, Week 2

Here we are at the end of our second week back and Class One is now complete with all 30 children now in class. We are all feeling very proud of the new cohort in the way they have conducted themselves around school and in the kind and sensible way they carry out their learning each day and it has been lovely this week to watch them begin to form friendships with new children and get stuck into the many activities we have had planned for them this week.

This week, your child has very busy taking part in…

  • Circle times to discuss likes and dislikes
  • Painting in the art corner
  • Trying out some number games on the class computers
  • Learning single letter phonic sounds and forming them without taking our pen off of the whiteboard/ moving the pen in the correct direction.

A thank you once again for your patience at the gate during home-time and morning drop offs as we learn all of your names and faces. As you can imagine, learning parents, grandparents, child-minders, aunties and other family friends for each child is not an easy task but we hope to get a little quicker at this soon. In the meantime, please continue to inform a member of office staff or class adult if someone new is picking up your child, as we will be unable to let your child leave unless we have had consent and notification of this.

Lastly, you may notice that over the course of the year, your child may come home wearing a badge on a Friday afternoon. These are from our Friday awards assembly in which your child can win a values, effort or achievement award. Your child will be able to wear their badge for the whole week but will hand it back in the following Friday morning so that it can be given to the next person. We ask kindly that children look after their badges each week and that parents ensure that the children bring it back in on the following Friday. Thank you for your cooperation.

Enjoy your weekend everyone,

Miss Ingle, Mrs Holmes, Mrs Gemmell and Mrs Sabri

Autumn Week 1

What a fantastic start to the term we have had. All the children have come back after the summer well rested and ready to start their new school year! The effort I have seen this week has been amazing and I am hoping that it will continue!

In maths this week we explored larger numbers – working with 5,6 and 7 digit numbers! We have played some number games and it got rather noisy with all the dice rolling around! On Friday, I set some tricky work to test their mathematical thinking – I was so pleased to see the perseverance and determination in everyone and cannot wait to continue next week!

J.k. Rowling has been our focus in English, using the Ipads and Non-fiction books to carry out independent research. All the children chose how to display their research and some very interesting facts were found!

Thank you to all those who have been so efficient in bringing back the DT letters! This has really helped me get an idea of what we will be tasting and baking soon!

Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend,

See you Monday!

Autumn 1 Week 1

Hi everyone,

Welcome back to another school year! We had a great week getting to know the children and our new classroom! We have also enjoyed meeting most of the parents and would like to say thank you for being so patient at pick up time. Hopefully it won't be too long until we recognise all the new faces!     

In Maths this week we looked at place value and practised partitioning two digit numbers into Tens and Units. In Literacy we wrote a Recount about our summer holidays using time connectives and of course full stops and capital letters. We also started our new Geography topic and compared features of towns and the countryside. In RE we looked at our new value 'Thankfulness' and thought about the things that we are thankful for. 

We look forward to seeing you all again next week! 

Have a lovely weekend!

Mrs Pateman and Mrs Weston
