A warm welcome to our class page!
If you are reading this page it means that you are in Woodpecker class this year! I am really excited to have you in Woodpecker Class and for all the different activities and learning we will be doing together.
Over the first few days, we will be spending some time getting to know each other and learning how to be together at school again. We will talk about expectations, our daily routine and see what our first topics and activities will be!
Reading underpins everything we do. I expect you to read every day, for no longer than 10 minutes and to discuss what you have read with somebody. You must also have your reading records signed daily ( we will be checking everyday) so you can move up our reading rocket challenge and receive rewards and prizes!
This year our focus is learning our 2, 5 and 10 Times Tables, including knowing them in and out of order and division facts. We will be starting with our 2 Times Table. I will send your Times Tables home at the beginning of each week and we will have a Times Table challenge every Friday!
In Maths, we will be learning about Place Value this term, which includes using lots of different resources to learn about number. This will help us when we move on to other units later on!
Phonics and spelling!
In the next few weeks, we will sort out our phonics and spelling groups. Each of you will continue to have your phonics folders with your sounds and spellings in to practise at home. These must be brought into school everyday please. If you have your old ones, can these please be brought in too. Your weekly spellings will be sent home on a Monday and tested on a Friday.
This term we will be looking at the topic 'Mess, Muck & Mixture'. We will be creating our own magical concoctions, having a messy mixture afternoon and designing our own gallery.
Our link text this term is 'Georges Marvellous Medicine' which we will be using as our Whole Class Reading text and in our English lessons.
