Welcome to Rowling Class.
We hope the children have had a restful Summer and that they are ready to get back to learning with us.
As we are Rowling Class, we will be spending the first few days studying the life and works of JK Rowling. This includes creating a biography on JK Rowling, designing and making broomsticks and playing Quidditch!! Photos to follow!
Our new topic for term 1 will be ' The Romans'. We will be linking all our learning to this new and exciting topic.
In Maths we will be solving problems to develop and build upon our knowledge and understanding of place value , addition and subtraction. We will also be using this topic to inspire our writing over the next term .
PE, this term , will be on a Tuesday and Friday. Please make sure that kits are in school on these days. However, it would be helpful to have PE kits in school throughout the week ,as occasionally we may have to change arrangements due to the weather.
Please continue to read regularly at home with your children, with the focus being on talking about what the children are reading and asking them questions about what they have read.
The children will be expected to complete a home learning task each week, and will be bringing home more information on this at the end of this week. In essence, the children will be given a set of home learning tasks to complete over the course of the term. They can chose which activity they want to complete from a list each week. They will bring this home learning to school every Thursday. We hope the children will enjoy choosing their own home learning and developing a variety of learning attributes whilst doing so.
We look forward to our year ahead with your children. If you have any questions or concerns , please come and see us .
Mrs Lintott, Mrs Meadows and Miss Atkins.
