Welcome to Hedgehog Class
Welcome back to school! I hope you all had a fantastic summer break and are ready for an exciting autumn term.
This term we will be travelling back in time to answer the question...
Who was to blame for the Great Fire of London?
Throughout this history based topic, we will be finding out how the Great Fire of London started and who was responsible. We we be learning about what houses were like in 1666 and what it would be like to grow up in Tudor times. In our science lessons, we will be looking at what materials houses and clothes were made out of in 1666 and what materials they used to rebuild London.
The children will receive homework on a Friday, which will need to be back in school by the following Wednesday. This will consist of spellings, reading and a fortnightly English task. Maths homework is set weekly via www.mymaths.co.uk and www.ttrockstars.com . 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.
During this term, gymnastics will be taught on a Monday 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.
