Welcome to the Jaguars’ class!
Our fantastic class is taught by Mrs Weaver and is made up of incredible children who are amazingly supportive of one another and show super resilience for any challenge that faces them. It is understatement to say that this year has been unusual, but with the incredible determination and positive attitude of Jaguars, I am sure we will continue the year successfully.
Each morning we come into class, 8.50-9.00, we will be responding and correcting any of our learning from the previous day. This will lead straight into our English lessons, which will follow our new and very exciting curriculum. These lessons will be broken into daily spelling, reading and writing. Within these lessons, we will continue to learn and apply our spelling rules; focus on the key reading skills: vocabulary, retrieval and inference; finally, we will be looking at how to extend our knowledge of grammar and punctuation to then apply to our writing.
In Maths after break, we will continue to revisit daily our arithmetic calculations through the support of our weekly arithmetic paper against other schools in the Trust. Following some consolidation of our fraction knowledge learnt during remote learning, we will begin learning about Statistics, Measures and Geometry.
For the afternoons, we will return from lunch to complete our daily Times Table Rock Stars, followed by either our ‘Daily mile’ or a ‘Maths Meeting’ to revisit prior learning. Our wider curriculum subjects for History, Science, Geography, Art and DT are blocked into periods of one to three weeks. This allows each block to focus on a different topic in depth. French, Computing, PE, PSHE and RE will continue to be taught weekly. We are hopeful towards the end of term, we can begin our music lessons following COVID advice. Every Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, we have PE with a specialist sports coach.
Later in the afternoon, we have the opportunity to do some quiet reading and complete quizzes about the books we have read, followed by our class story at the end of the day.
