A huge welcome back to all Diamond learners after half term.
This term our topic is 'Thornbury'.
In History and Geography, we will explore the local legends and area. Covid and weather permitting we hope to get out and about in the community and become aqauinted with our local area. We will learn about Henry VIII and his links to Thornbury Castle and Edward Jenner, the first person to create a vaccine who lived nearby in Berkley.
Our books for this term are 'The Way Home' by Libby Hathorn & Gregory Rogers and 'Town Mouse, Country Mouse' by Richard Jones & Libby Waldon, and we will deliver our English curriculum through them. In Maths, our focus is on Money and Fractions.
In PHSE, we will continue looking at goals and dreams. We will be working with Ruby Class and merging the classes, which was enjoyed by all students last term. As part of this, we will raise money for charity and look at different causes.
We will continue to practice life skills using the Talentino programme with Natalie on a Wednesday morning. Check Evidence for Learning to see what they are up to this term. Cooking will continue on a Thursday morning as well.

PE continues to be on a Wednesday afternoon. Your child can wear their PE kit into school for the day. This can be adapted to suit the weather as it gets colder e.g. joggers, trainers and hoodies to keep warm. Please don't buy it specially for PE. Use what your students have already.
Feel Good Friday where we mix uo with other classes is hopefully making a come back now that the Covid restrictions are lifted. We are looking forward to being with our friends that are in different classes again.
