Welcome back to a new year in the Owl Class. It is so wonderful to see lovely smiling faces again and begin a new adventure of learning.
In English we have begun this term learning the adventurous story of Jack and the Beanstalk. It is our goal to write our own quest stories based on the text. We have also started the year reading an hilarious new class novel The Nothing To See Here Hotel.
We have already made a speedy start in maths, broadening our understanding of number to 3-digits, before using these to build on our addition and subtraction knowledge. We will be working super hard to learn the 4 and 8 times tables.
Our topic, Epic Eruptions and Roman Rulers, will take us on a journey around the world and far back in time. Led with enquiry questions, we will become historians and geographers and delve deep into a variety of sources to find out as much as we can.
All children now have their own individual email address and have been set up on Google Classroom. They are currently being taught how to use this at school. In the event of another lockdown, or if your child has to remain at home for a long period of time, this is how we will communicate and set work for them.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us via dojo and we can always call you if the matter requires further attention.
Thank you for your continued support,
Mrs Harding and Miss Massey
