Welcome to Green Class! I am Mr Magson and am proud to announce I will be teaching Green Class this year. I am a big fan of Music, reading and films. The teaching assistants of Green Class will be Mrs Nerdrum and Mrs Heeley this year, who I am really looking forward to working with!

 

This year will consist of variety of magnificent topics including Romans, Vikings and leisure and entertainment as well as many more.

 

I look forward to exploring what the children want to know and how they approach certain problems, as I believe I will learn a thing or two from them (and vice versa!)

 

This terms learning:

 

Welcome to our first term together as the newly formed Green Class!

Please make sure your child has their full PE kit in school at all times. At the very least they should have T-shirts, shorts and plimsolls in school. This term children will be participating in Gym and Tag Rugby.

 

Homework

This year childrens homework will be set for the entire term. Each week children will choose ONE piece of homework out of a possible 10. Children will only need to complete 5 pieces in total this term.  Homework consists of Maths, English and other subject or topic related work.

 

Spelling

Each Friday, your child will be given weekly spellings. These will be tested on Friday morning and will include statutory words (that may include a maths term) and other words from a spelling pattern.

 

Times tables

Dear Parents/Carers,

We will be testing the children on their 2 times tables this Friday, as a start to our times table practice programme. There are challenges that the children will work through in school and at home.  There are some very good interactive times tables games on the Woodlands Primary School web pages.. aswell as "Hit the button" activity online.
