Welcome Super Six to your class page.
I am so looking forward to our new school year, I hope you are too. We start back togerther on Wednesday 2nd September, school is a little different to what you remember due to Covid-19 changes, but it is still your school. We will be starting at 9 a.m. and finish at 3.30 p.m. to allow for staggered start and finish times. Please do read the return to school guidance that has been forwarded on parentmail. A frequently asked quetion is "do I need a pencil case?" The answer is no you don't, I have set up a pencil pot for each one of you so you will have your own stationery, even coloured pencils! We need to reduce how much we all bring in to school to help reduce the risk of bringing the virus in as well. You nly need to bring your P.E. kit and your packed lunch if you have one. A fruit snack would be a good idea as staggered lunchtimes will mean we eat a little later than usual.
As I write and look out of the window it feels like Autumn is on it's way. In the Autumn 1 term our topic is "Why are the Americas amazing?" We will investigate the ancient Maya civilisation and the geography of South America. This will link to our art and DT as we learn to weave. In English our focus book is "Journey to the River Sea" by Eva Ibbotson (we have a copy for each of you in school), we will begin by writing some narrative and then a non-chronological report. In maths we will begin with place value to refresh our knowledge. This half term we will be learning to tell the time in French (this will link to and help our maths too!). Gymnastics will be our topic in P.E. (should be fun). In science we are building on our previous knowledge and investigating electricity.
P.E. will be Monday and Thursday but please ensure you keep your kit in school all week as we may have other opportunities.
Homework will be given on a Friday to be returned the follwoing Thursday, we will mark this together as a learning curve.
