I can't quite believe it's Friday again, where has this week gone? It's been a very busy week in Ash Class. The children completed a reading test as well as two Maths tests and I'm very proud of how they all handled it and tried their best. They have also finished writing their own stories so next week we will start a new unit of English work based on the book 'Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World', looking at biographies. In History, they have written some letters in role as a Roman soldier building Hadrian's Wall. Today, we enjoyed some karaoke and stories in different languages to celebrate European Language Day!
This week's spellings:
Keep practising times tables on Times Tables Rock Star and keep reading daily.
Have a great weekend!
We've had another good week in Ash Class this week. The children have continued learning about Place Value in Maths and learnt how to round numbers to the nearest 10 and 100. In English, they have written a story called 'Bob and the Brownies'. Ask them what it is about! In History, they designed posters as job adverts for a Roman Soldier. Have a look at the photo of some of the work on display. They also had great fun with Mrs Mathews in Music and are learning the song 'Mamma Mia' by Abba. The week has finished with an energetic P.E. lesson this afternoon, practising skills in throwing and catching. Finally, well done to all children who have been benchmarked and moved up a colour band or become a free reader!
This week's spellings:
Please keep reading daily and making a note in reading folders, and keep up the times table practise. We will be using Times Table Rockstars as often as possible at school.
Please have a look at what we are learning about this term.
Well that's the first week back finished! Well done to all of the children for their super attitudes and effort having returned to school.
We have started our 'Place Value' unit in Maths and are looking at four digit numbers. In English, we have read the story 'Daphne and the Doughtnuts' and have learnt how to use inverted commas to punctuate speech in our writing. The children are really enjoying our Roman Empire topic in History and next week we will be looking at how the Roman army was so successful. Today, we also enjoyed our first PE lesson with the specialist coach!
I have sent the children home with some spellings to practise ready for a spelling test next week:
They also should have their reading folder and a reading book. It's really important they are reading regularly at home so please do record in their diaries when they have read.
I hope everyone has a great weekend.
Miss Radbourne :)
Hello and welcome to a brand new school year!
We are really looking forward to welcoming your children back to school tomorrow. I am the class teacher, Miss Radbourne, and we will be supported by Mrs Shaw every morning. On a Wednesday morning, the children will be taught by Miss Chauhan and Mrs Mathews. We will also have Mrs Day supporting us on a Wednesday afternoon.
Ash Class' daily arrival time is 9:00am. We ask that you please do not arrive early as we need to reduce congestion at the school gate, however siblings of other children may arrive at the earliest arrival time. Myself or Mrs Shaw will be there to collect the children and walk them to the classroom everyday. Our school day ends at 3:35pm and we will bring your children down to school gate ready to meet you.
Please remember that your child needs to come with a fully equipped pencil case, a water bottle, warm clothing (our classroom will be well-ventilated with doors and windows open) and a coat.
PE will take place on a Friday and we ask that your child comes dressed in their PE kit. We advise warm tracksuit bottoms and please remember a school jumper to keep warm during the day. Children will spend the day in their PE kit and wear it home again so that no PE kits are left in school.
If your child requires a school packed lunch, please book this through the Gateway website.
I hope your child is looking forward to returning to school, but please reassure them that if they are worried about anything, we are ready to listen and support them. We have an exciting day planned tomorrow with lots of 'getting to know you' games, an art activity and some sharing of what we have done over the Summer. There will be plenty of time for all of the children to catch up with their friends too!
If you have any queries or questions, please send me a message via ClassDojo.
