Welcome back to Ash class.
Mrs Brown will be teaching on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Turner will be teaching on Thursday and Friday. We hope that everyone has enjoyed the summer break and is ready for the fun and challenges of the year ahead.
This term we are travelling back to World War 1, as we look to answer the learning challenge question-World war 1-was it a great war? We will look at marking the 100 years since WW1 ended with thoughts of remembrance. Finding out about the trenches will be important to understand what life was like for those fighting in the war. Our class reader "A soldier's Friend" will through fiction, look at the significant role that animals played in the war.
Our main writing focus will be understanding fiction in particular some books written by Roald Dahl and developing our comprehension skills, as well as aspects of poetry. We will also have daily guided reading and lessons in spelling, handwriting and grammar.
Our science topics will be animals, classification and food chains. This will include looking at nutrition and healthy eating. We will also find out about teeth and making sure we take care of them!
In maths, we will initially be working on place value, securing our knowledge and understanding of this. We will then continue on to addition and subtraction, developing mental skills and then formal written methods. The children will also work on their times tables and speed of recall.
P.E will be on Wednesday and Friday, however please can your child's NAMED P.E kit be in school from the Monday and then washed over the weekend.
French lessons will also start on a Wednesday with Madame Blanc.
If you have any queries please see one of the Ash Teaching team after school.
Mrs Turner, Mrs Brown, Miss Kent and Miss Clucas
