Welcome to Orange Class
Orange Class consists of 30 hardworking, keen-to-learn children. Miss Bushnell is the class teacher with help from Mrs Spink and Mr Donovan who are our super Teaching Assistants.
Our topic this half-term is...
This term our Learning Journey has a geography focus, but English, maths, history, science, art, DT, gymnastics, RE and music will all link together to create an exciting, memorable learning experience.
We are going to be exploring the Galapagos Islands where we will be discovering many different animals and looking at their habitats. We will also be researching a historical figure - Charles Darwin - and look at his contribution to the animal kingdom and his discoveries whilst visiting the Galapagos Islands.
This term we have also set up an incubator and will be incubating a variety of different breeds of chickens which we will be writing about within Literacy and our Learning Journeys. This is very exciting for us in Orange Class, as we are learning a lot about the lifecycle of a chick and seeing exactly how the process happens and develops over the 21 days!
PE is currently on a Tuesday afternoon however please ensure PE kits are in school at all times. In gymnastics, we will be looking at different ways of travelling - thinking about the ways in which a variety of animals move.
KS1 SATS Information May 2018
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.
