Hello and welcome to Orange Class, we hope you had a lovely summer break. This year your child will be looked after by Siobhan (teacher) and a team consisting of Jane, Pauline, Lynda, Vicky and Naima. We are very much looking forward to getting to know them all and working with you too.
This half term our topic is ‘What a load of Junk’ the children will learn about some different materials, their uses and how things are recycled. Each week a nominated child will be the Eco Warrior and help with emptying the class compost bins as well as checking the class rubbish is put into the correct bin!
In English we will be looking at ‘Whistle for Willie’ by Ezra Jack Keats, which is about a little boy named Peter who has a sausage dog called Willie; Peter is desperate to learn to whistle so his dog will come running. We are hoping for a visit from a real sausage dog at some point for the children to see up close.
In Maths we will be studying a different area each fortnight including, Number, Measure, Geometry, Positional language and Money.
Please see the Curriculum Map for more details of what is happening this term.
