Croeso i Ddosbarth 11
Welcome to Class 11
We will be looking at conflicts over time, the rise and fall of the British Empire, the history of enslavement, the impact of WW2 on children, and lots more. We will also look at the history of flags and their relevance in battle. As well as all this, we will look at conflict in our own lives and way to manage, handle and avoid it
We have daily Maths lessons to practise important skills for everyday life. We then consolidate these skills by using them across the curriculum in our topic lessons because it's important that we use them in meaningful, real-life activities.
It is really important to have a good grasp of the basics, like times tables, in order to access the higher level numeracy activities as they get older. These can easily be practised at home.
We cover a wide range of genres in our Literacy lessons. All of the work we do throughout the week builds up to a final writing piece. We also encourage lots of reading in order to introduce vocabulary and ideas to the children.
Reading- We do GGR ( Guided Group Reading) everyday, which is a fantastic way for children to learn to read in a group environment, with lots of discussion and interaction. When not reading, the children are doing reading based activities independently, which is also great for their skill development. We also have individual reading books, which are read both independently and with a teacher/TA. Individual reading books have also been sent home with children, so please return once they have finished so they can be swapped for a new one.
Our PE day is Wednesday. We are timetabled to use the hall in the afternoon, but if the weather is good we prefer to go outside. Please consider this and ensure your child has appropriate clothing to take part. We are not able to change in school at the moment so PE kit can be worn.
Check Class dojo for updates throughout the week , and if you have any questions/concerns, this is a good way to contact me.
