Welcome to Orange Class
Orange Class consists of 29 hardworking, keen-to-learn children. Miss Bushnell is the class teacher with help from Mrs Spink who is our super Teaching Assistant.
In English, we will be focusing setting description and exploring the fantastic book ‘The Snow Lambs’. We will also be creating some fantastic animal poetry creaing kennings and animal shape poetry.
In Science, we will be learning about living things and their habitats. The children will explore and compare the differences between things that are living, dead, and things that have never been alive. They will also be investigating microhabitats, food chains and even designing and making bug hotels.
Our Learning Journey this term will have a Geography and History focus.
KS1 SATS Information May 2019
Children in Orange Class will be taking their SATS tests during May. This is nothing for children or parents to worry about. The tests are not qualifications and don’t affect your child’s future options in school. The results are an opportunity to compare pupils nationally to ensure
schools are helping pupils to master the basics in English and mathematics, and make progress.

Please read with your child as often as possible (every day if you can). Research shows that children who read at home make better progress with their reading generally.
The National Literacy Trust which suggested that young people who read outside class were 13 times more likely to read above the expected level for their age.
It also follows a study from London's Institute of Education published last week which suggested that children who read for pleasure are likely to be better at both maths and English than those who rarely read in their free time.Please encourage your child to bring their reading bag to school every day.
