Class Blog – 8th May 2018
We are now fully immersed into the first half of the summer term which has seen us start lots of new and exciting topics plus looking at how our new value of ‘Peace’ can be an integral part of our daily lives.
In English we are visiting the classic story of Robin Hood which will culminate in the children writing their own adventure stories, which I very much look forward to reading. Angles and geometry will be the focus for maths allowing for lots of investigative work. Rivers is our topic in geography in which the children will be researching and presenting their own findings on famous rivers around the world. Do they know through which parts of the world the Nile, Mississippi and Severn flow?
In Art, we will be learning a new skill, perspective drawing, which will introduce a new style of drawing for many of the children and will require lots of patience and concentration – but will allow for some fantastic results! We have ventured outside for several PE lessons so far, which I hope will continue, and it is great to see the progress they are all making in their weekly swimming lessons.
Compositions is the focus of the term in music and in French they will be studying regions within France. In RE, Mrs Folkard will be teaching them the importance of both Salvation, and the important message which Jesus taught, and the Resurrection.
Here is to another busy and successful term for St Cecilia!
All children are expected to read regularly every week; 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.
