Welcome to Panthers' class!

The Panthers are taught by Mrs Williams and Ms. Kirby, assisted by Mrs Norden.

We would like to wish you a warm welcome to the Panthers Class website page where we can share useful links and newsletters as well as information on current learning taking place in class.

Every day in the Panthers we cover English, Maths and Guided Reading. In addition, across the week we have handwriting sessions, Music, French, Spellings, PE and PSHE as well as Topic. This all makes for a very busy timetable!

We have made a super start the year over the Autumn Term with lots of exciting learning!

In January, we will be looking at Nonsense Poems in Literacy and then a Journey Story. We will also be working on writing non-chronological reports or information texts. In Maths we will be looking at Time and Fractions followed by addition and subtraction of two digit numbers.

Our topic is a local study, so we will be looking at Kedington and comparing the village with Cambridge and an African village. The class will be able to explore the village further on our walks and look at the building types, as well as spotting human and physical features.

In French we will be consolidating counting to 20, basic greetings and moving on to phrases such as ‘How old are you?’ and ‘What is the time?’  In addition to this we will be learning about rooms in the house and buildings and how to communicate these with simple French sentences.

In Music we will continue to hear and appraise music. Building on our work about South African Music and our super Christmas Nativity. This Half Term will be looking at classic rock songs. We will also sing, play, improvise and compose.

PE will take place on a Monday and Wednesday. This term we will be working on Dance and Games.

This half term our learning journey in Science will be looking at Light and Sound.

Just a little reminder that spellings will be tested on a Monday afternoon and Book Bags will be checked daily if put in the box. Reading books will be changed when necessary.

Please keep an eye on Class Dojo as this will be updated regularly with photographs of current learning and is a great opportunity to be able to communicate with the class teacher in a quick and effective manner.
