We are a class made of up 31 wonderfully eager and enthusiastic learners, who take every challenge in their stride. Joining us are Miss Poole, who is our class teacher, and Mrs Brown, who is our classroom assistant.
Each morning we have literacy and maths lessons and a reading session in the afternoon. Three times a week we complete aTimes Table Rockstar challenge where we test our recall skills in a three minute time. Twice a week we take part in a whole class guided reading session where we work together to explore different stories, take it in turns to read and share and discuss our ideas with our peers.
Our free time is used exploring other areas of the curriculum through science, history, geography, art and more through different topics. Each term we focus on a different topic and try to immerse our learning around that topic. In Autumn 2018 we absolutely loved learning about Ancient Egypt where we even had a trip to the Fitzwilliam museum in Cambridge!
In Spring 2019, our new topic is called Footprints of the past where we will be learning about the history of dinosaurs, how the world has changed as well as learning lots of science and art skills along the way. We would really appreciate it if, during any free time you have, you helped the children with some research, reading or even go a trip to get them fully excited by their learning.
Please get in touch with Miss Poole if you are available at all to hear children read.
