Welcome to Blackbird Class!
I hope you all had a lovely summer and I'm pleased to be welcoming you into Blackbird Class.
This term, our topic is 'Through the Ages'. We will be learning about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age, finding out more about early people and how they lived. We will also begin our English lessons by looking at the book 'Stone Age Boy'. Plants were very important in the Stone Age, so in Science, we will be learning about how plants grow and reproduce. In Maths, we will be learning about place value and methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and in R.E., we will be thinking about what it is like for Christians to follow God by studying the story of Noah.
Your child be given logins for Times Tables Rockstars, Prodigy and Spelling Shed, which are websites that can be accessed from the links on this page and can help improve your child's times tables, Maths skills and spelling. Also listed are some other websites that can help with times tables practice, as well as some links to other sites related to our current and future curriculum.
This year, our drop-off and pick-up times are:
Drop-off at the school gate: 8:30am - 8:45am
Pick-up at the school gate: 3:10pm
There will still be a one-way system in operation so please enter through the small gate and exit through the car park.
I look forward to getting to know you all better over the school year and will be sending out more information about the class shortly. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch by phoning or emailing the office or catching me at the gate after school.
