Welcome to our class page! This is the main page, that we will update with what we are doing for the half term but please don’t forget to look at our parent page which is updated weekly with pictures of what we have been up to in class.
Our PE days will be on a Tuesday and Thursday this half term, the children can still come to school in their PE clothes and as the weather is still warm we will be outside as much as possible so this needs to include trainers, house colour t-shirt and black shorts.
In literacy, we are starting off a new topic based on the Pixar short film ‘The Blue Umbrella’. Through this film we will explore the love story of two umbrellas meeting, there are no words but it has beautiful cinematography. It is a lovely story based in New York in a storm. The children will work on creating paragraphs that will go with certain scenes of the film before creating their own story.
In maths, we are working on place value to start with and then we will move onto addition and subtraction. Through these topics we will explore partitioning, number lines and rounding. I have been so impressed by how the children have embraced the challenges so far and problem solving that comes with the maths we explore.
We will also be starting a new theme topic called ‘Athens vs Sparta’. Through this topic we will explore the Ancient Greeks, where and how they lived, what we learned from them and about the Greek Gods and stories associated with them. We will also delve into some of the battles and why Athens differed to Sparta.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
