In Blue Class, we are taught by Ms Bames and Mrs Edmunds who are supported by Mrs Da Silva. Our Learning Journey for this term is 'It's a kind of MAGIC!'
All of our subjects are meaningfully and creatively linked together through our Learning Journey.
Our Art, DT, Science and History will link together in this second half term as we focus on scientific discoveries and how what can seem like magic can often be explained by science. We are developing our scientific enquiry and look at how our understanding of STEM subjects impacts our society.
Blue Class will be learning all about electricity this half term.
Art and Design
Children will design and create their own wand based on Harry Potter using skills learnt in Forest School.
There are lots of exciting opportunities for great writing this term. We are reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and will focus this half term on Setting and Character descriptions.
We are efficient and effective mathematicians in the Summer term with a strong focus on formal written calculations for the four operations. We will also continue to develop skills in shape, space and measure, fractions and decimals and data handling.
Rounders is on a Wednesday and kit must be in school at all times please. If your child wears earrings, please make sure they are removed on PE days or that your child is confident removing them. On Fridays, children will develop athletics skills and aim for PBs. Some of these PE sessions will be given over to Forest School towards the end of term.
We will be asking some big questions in Blue Class this term and learning from religions to help us decide what is right and wrong. We will also think about why some people think that life is a journey.
This term we work hard on developing positive relationships and consider what it takes to resolve conflicts amongst peers.
In Blue Class, children are expected to read 5 times per week. Maths and English work will be given on alternate weeks and spellings will come home every Friday. It is also expected that children will practise their times tables at home. I am hugely impressed with the dedication amongst the children in becoming secure in all 12x12 times tables and it is really helping to develop skills and mastery in our maths curriculum. Well done.
In our class we will be reinforcing British Values in many ways including looking closely at individual liberty.
We are always open to offers of help in Blue Class so please do get in touch if you have some time that you would like to offer!
