Welcome to the Jaguars’ class!
Our class is made up of 25 awesome children, who work incredibly hard and are keen to face the challenges presented to them. Mrs Tolley is our class teacher and Mrs Thiessen joins us on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.
Everyday is jam-packed filled with learning, starting with children entering our classroom from 8.35-8.40am before immediately getting started on their morning task. Our mornings include a whole class reading lesson, followed by a writing lesson and then maths before lunch. In addition to this, the children will have the chance to explore the new spelling rule of the week and practise our times tables with TTRS.
The afternoons are where we get the explore our wider curriculum subjects. History and geography are taught on a two-weekly basis whereas science is explored weekly on Fridays. In addition to this, we also explore new art and DT skills as well as understanding ourselves and the wider world in French, PSHE and RE.
In the autumn term, the children swim on Monday mornings and have PE on Thursday mornings. Please make sure the children come to school on Thursdays in their PE kits. Once a week, the children will take an arithmetic test to practise their mathematical skills. The previous weeks test will be sent home with the children so they can share their successes with adults at home.
In addition to every else, at 3pm every day the children get themselves ready for home before listening to their class story. Hearing stories read aloud is vital no matter what age the child so please look at the recommended list for suggested books to explore with your child. If your child finishes their book at home, the children can complete quizzes on Accelerated Reader between the hours of 8am and 5pm.
