Term 1 Week 2 (7-11th September)
What a great start to the year we have had – the children all came back happy, positive and above all keen to be learning again. It was a real joy hearing the hubbub of the class (and school) again.
This week in English we are continuing with our wonderful Here We Are book by Oliver Jeffers and the children will be publishing their poems from last week and writing letters – both informal and formal. We will be sending home spelling sheets from this week too which will match with activities on SpellingShed. (We will reissue logins and passwords for this.)
In maths we carry on with place value and start the week with representing numbers, then compare and order numbers, moving to rounding numbers, then move on to counting forwards and backwards. We will reissue passwords for TTRocksStars this week too. Within our maths sessions this week we are also starting our outdoor learning sessions for each year group.
Our learning theme is ‘What would Britain be like if the Vikings hadn’t invaded?’ so we will build on last weeks learning about history timelines and chronology and find out more about how/why/when the Vikings landed on our shores. We will recap some geography and use science to find out about changes of state. In art this week, Buzzard will be designing and making Viking-style broaches.
What a full week!
We are really looking forward to opening our doors to you all tomorrow! Your class teachers in Buzzard Class are Mrs Elms and Mrs Barker with the support of Mrs Jeffries and Mrs Moffatt. We also welcome Miss Hughes who will be our new Play Leader at lunchtime.
We hope you are as ready and raring to go as we are!
