Mrs McArdle was very thankful for the lovely cards that you made for her.  Your messages really helped to cheer her up, as she is missing you all and teaching you very much.

Mrs McArdle has had her arm successful fixed through an operation and will be returning to school, hopefully before the end of term.  Meanwhile, I will be teaching the class full-time.

Autumn Term


Posted by Mrs Gould | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 28-11-2017

Hello everyone,

We’re really looking forward to meeting you all.

This term our topic is Into the Forest,  our classroom and learning space features a variety of different aspects to highlight this, including leaves, animals, hideouts and a woodland cottage.

In Science this term we will be looking at what plants and flowers need in order to grow and survive, including a special visit from an alien! Zinnia is an alien from out of space who has requested that the children design a space farm with all they key features needed to plant, grow and harvest food on her planet. We will also dissect a flower in order to detect all the parts of a flower and then look at the pollination process.

In geography we will be looking at maps and directions of our local area and then comparing the differences between urban and rural settings and the activities and landmarks found in them.

In numeracy we will be looking at addition and subtraction facts, using various methods to find the answers to calculations, using reasoning to discuss our answers. In addition to this the children will be practicing their 3x, 5x, 6x, 4x and 8x tables, you can aid your children’s learning experience by visiting reggae beatz times tables,  a fun and active way to learn. (The children learn the dance moves too!)

In Literacy we will looking at settings and character descriptions, speech vocabulary and the language we use to aid these in our writing; furthermore, to engage and enthuse the children’s learning we will be using drama for writing and talk for writing. After that,  we will be looking at the key features of a non-chronological report, after a surprise sighting of the Kingsley Colossus. A rare type of giant who is usually only spotted at night in local woodlands and parks!

We are very lucky to have the  artist Piper come and work in class once a week after the half term. He will be using lots of different medium with the children to create 2d and 3d pieces of art which range from sketching to clay modelling.

I hope that you will try your very best to read 5 times a week. We want to try and move as many of us up on the book bands as possible
