In Blue Class, we are taught by Mrs Edmunds and Ms Bames who are supported by Mrs Da Silva. Our Learning Journey for this term is Cocoa Loco!
All of our subjects are meaningfully and creatively linked together through our Learning Journey.
Our Art, DT, History and Geography will link closely with our English work this term as we find out all about the history of chocolate.
Blue Class will be learning about States of Matter this term.
There are lots of exciting opportunities for great writing this term. We are reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and exploring Roald Dahl's use of humour to engage the young reader. We will write across a range of genres whilst embedding new grammar skills.
We strive to be efficient and effective mathematicians in the Autumn term as we begin to 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.
Please ensure your child's kit is fully labelled and in school every day as we like to make use of our fantastic all weather pitch (MUGA) whenever we can.
We will be asking some big questions in Blue Class this term and learning about the main religions practised in Britain with an in depth study of Hinduism.
This term we will initially work on inter personal skills and how to work well with one another in a supportive way. We will also be thinking about what Britain's values are and how we can manifest them in everyday life.
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.
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!
