Welcome to Penguins class!

 

I am very excited to have 30 new Penguins in my class and I can’t wait for our learning to get started!

 

Our topic for the Autumn term is Ancient Egypt, with our focus question being ‘Were the Egyptians ahead of their time?’ We have a variety of exciting texts we will be focusing on in English including ‘Egyptian Cinderella’ and ‘The Scarab’s Secret’.

 

In Maths we will be continuing our learning through the use of Maths No Problem. We will begin by focusing on our knowledge of numbers and their value.  

 

During Science this term, we will be learning all about Light.

 

In Geography we will be locating Egypt on a map and studying the River Nile.

 

In Art, Penguins will be studying and creating their own hieroglyphics, whilst in Design and Technology they will be building their own pyramids!

 

We will continue to learn Spanish in Miss Donkin’s Spanish assemblies each week.

 

Useful information

 

Mrs. Pollard is our teaching assistant.

 

PE is on a Monday (this could change at any time so please ensure kits are in school every day). Please ensure kits are clearly named.

 

We encourage children to read regularly and children will receive a reading raffle ticket for reading 5 times a week. Children should record their reading in their reading record daily. Now children are in KS2, they can do this independently, however we would ask that you sign the reading record weekly to show that you have acknowledged your child has read. Children should bring their reading record book into school every day. Thank you.

 

Please remember your water bottles every day as our classroom does get very warm. Please make sure the water bottle is clearly named and is only filled with water or squash only. Also, if your child requires a snack, they will need to bring this in with them, as they no longer will have this provided. Please ensure they come with a healthy snack. Alternatively, tuck shop will run daily from the first Monday of term. Thank you.

 

Homework will be given out on Thursdays and is due in on Tuesdays. Please encourage your child to do the challenge questions set. If they wish, they may attend the weekly homework club to complete their homework.

 

Children will be lining up in the morning outside Penguins door and will be going in to the classroom to complete their morning activity at 8.50am. They will be released from the same place at the end of the day.

 

We have a fun and busy term ahead and I’m super excited to get started.

 

Please feel free to speak to me for any further information.

 

Miss Reed
