Class Blog – January 2019
Welcome back St Francis! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are feeling well rested. This term is going to be busy with lots of new topics to fit in.
In maths we will be starting to look at division and using a range of concrete and written methods and continued times table practice.
In our English lessons will be studying suspense stories. We will be introduced to a story called ‘The Old Mill’, and learning how to use this model as a starting point and come to write our own.
History this term will see us research The Vikings. Who they were, where they came from, language, art and our DT topic will see us designing long boats too. Other subject areas are science, where we will be focusing on plants and then sound.
We will begin our topic on the Vikings with a WOW day which will be linked to art, history, DT and geography until the Easter holidays.
I am looking forward to another exciting term with the children!
All children are expected to read regularly every week to an adult; each time they read, they will receive raffle tickets. When they have read 5 times, they will receive raffle tickets and a merit, which will count towards their house. Other prizes for reading will be given in class throughout the year.
Could you please ensure that your child brings their home/school planner in to school every day. Please feel free to write any comments in it.
Every Friday your child will bring their planner home which will have been signed by their teacher. This should be countersigned by the parent/carer and returned to school again on Monday morning.
