Term 1

Welcome back to the new school year.

I think that the students have done a fantastic job of settling into the new school year and establishing their friendships with their new class.

To get to know everyone we have been reading The Ugly Duckling and using it to inspire our own writing.

 

 

 

English

We have two great texts that we are going to be sharing with the students this term which are both linked to our topic of the Vikings.

 

These books are great fun and I am sure will give us some great writing opportunities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Maths

In maths we will be starting the year by revisiting number and place value, improving our counting skills and understanding of number.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Topic

Our topic for the next two terms is the Vikings. I think this topic is going to be loads of fun and a chance to learn about history and get outside into our outdoor Learning Area.

 

Swimming

We will be swimming every Wednesday morning this term at Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre. We are able to send a lot of adults to support us in the pool so I am sure the students will make some amazing progress.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Horse riding and Outdoor Learning

As explained in the letter home some of the class will be going horse riding this term on a Wednesday afternoon while some of us have great fun learning in our fantastic Outdoor Classroom.
