Welcome to Hedgehog Class
We have two questions to think about this term...
If you were a pirate, where would your adventures take you?
Throughout this topic we will be researching famous pirates and where they travelled around the globe. We will be using our knowledge of the continents and oceans to work out where their adventures took them.
How will 5 a day make me healthy?
We are going to be finding out how we can live a healthy lifestyle. We are going to be investigating how we feel after eating our 5 a day and if we notice a difference when we do not.
The children will receive homework on a Friday, which will need to be back in school by the following Thursday. This will consist of spellings, reading and a fortnightly English task. Maths homework is set weekly via www.mymaths.co.uk. Spellings will be tested every Wednesday and times tables on a Friday. The children are also expected to read at least three times a week and this needs to be recorded in their reading log. At the beginning of each term, the children will also be given a Nando's challenge sheet with optional tasks to complete throughout the term.
PE will be taught on a Monday and Wednesday afternoon. The children are expected to have PE kits in school which consist of shorts, T shirts, trainers or plimsolls, and may also have jogging bottoms and sweatshirts as outdoor PE will carry on throughout the whole year. Please can long hair be tied back, and earrings removed for health and safety reasons. Please make sure that all items from their P.E kit, as well as uniform, are clearly named.
£1 donations are put towards additional healthy snacks for the children, cooking ingredients and any other creative resources.
If you have any questions or concerns do try to catch me on the playground or arrange a meeting after school.
Thank you for all your support.
