Croeso i Dosbarth 13
Welcome to Class 13
Class teacher: Mr Owens
PPA teacher: Miss Letman
TA: Mrs Hutchings
Our topic this term is 'We Are Carers.'
We will be looking at micro-organisms and our bodies, learning about how it looks after us. As part of this, we will be looking at vaccines, medication, treatments and our immune system. We will also look at child/human rights and the lockdown, and what impact this had.
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 really 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, but there are also lots of good websites and games available too. Try some of these below:
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) every day, 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 are 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 - navy joggers/shorts, white t-shirt, blue jumper and trainers.
Check Class Dojo for updates throughout the week, and if you have any questions/concerns, this is a good way to contact me.
