We are all looking forward to a fantastic year in Purple Class. To start with, we will be following Paddington Bear and his adventures in London and look at the famous landmarks he visits. We will then compare London to Ledbury and also to Peru where Paddington Bear comes from. We will then be learning about Paddington's favorite food and create our own marmalade sandwiches. The second part of the Autumn term we will be focusing on learning about famous explorers such as Christopher Columbus and Ernest Shackleton.
Our History, Geography, DT, Computing, Art will link to our learning journey to create a memorable and exciting learning journey.
In Science we are going to be learning all about 'Everyday Materials.' We will be describing and identifying materials as well as investigating their properties. Please check out our Class Gallery page to see what we have been up to in the classroom.
Below we have developed our own knowledge organisers to support the delivery of our curriculum. Each organiser is to help children recall the knowledge and a list of technical vocabulary with definitions.
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. They will change their books once a week and will bring home 3 books for you to share with your child. Please encourage your child to bring their reading bag to school every day.
Some tips for reading at home:
Discuss the story and ask your child lots of questions to check they have understood what they have read. Act out the story or make up different endings. Discuss the characters and their feelings at different times in the story. Talk about the story and relate it to your child’s experiences if possible. Check out the information below about reading and phonics at Ashperton below.
This term we have PE sessions on Monday and Friday afternoons but please ensure that PE kits are in school at all times. We will be following the Real PE scheme.
Every Friday your child will be given spellings to learn and practice to then be tested for the following Friday. Please check out the homework page below for the weekly spellings list. Your child also has a 'Phonics workout' book where are they are to complete the weekly set pages.
Your child will also have a log in to Doodle Maths, where they can complete a 'daily five.'
Please don't hesitate to contact us if you need any further information.
Email is often the most efficient method:
We look forward to a great Autumn term!
