Orange Class

SHOEBOXES NEEDED!

Next week, Orange Class will be starting to create settings (linked to our class book) for their stop animations they are creating in computing.

We would be really grateful if every child could bring in an empty shoebox (with or without lid) by next Wednesday (27th June).

Orange Class look forward to showing you its transformation!

Thank you!

Welcome to Orange Class!

Orange Class Teaching Team

Hi! Welcome to Orange Class' Class Page. I'm Miss Kostiw, the class teacher in Orange Class. I work with Mrs Rose, who also teaches Orange Class and our teaching assistant is Mrs Price.

I love teaching Orange Class because we have lots of fun opportunities that we are involved with throughout the year such as Maypole dancing on the village green on Mayday and our residential trip to Kingswood. We also get to learn about some brilliant topics: World War II, Brazil, Anglo-Saxons and Antarctica to name a few! My favourite lesson to teach is English and Mrs Rose's favourite lesson to teach is Maths because there are so many different ways to get the answer and it's so much fun exploring and investigating.

Mrs Price speaks fluent French which always really impresses us and she teaches French for the rest of Key Stage 2. Mrs Price is brilliant at explaining things and helping us learn new words. We love working together as a team and helping Orange Class to learn to their full potential.

 

 

 

This Term's Learning

Term 6, 2017-2018

 

Dear Parents,

 

Welcome back! Hope you all had a lovely half term. I can’t believe there is only one term left! We're looking forward to making the most out of the 7 weeks left.

 

Topics

Here are the topics we will be studying in Orange Class this term.

Literacy

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane (a range of narrative and non-fiction writing including letters, descriptions, monologues and story writing.)

Maths

A variety of topics, with a particular focus on the Key Objectives, including: angles, shape and space, volume.

Science

Living things and their habitats.

Geography

North America

RE

Christianity

Music

Rhythm and Pitch

Art/DT/Computing

Stop Animations and settings

PE

Athletics and Rounders

French

Food vocabulary

PE Kits

Please make sure that your child has their full PE kit in school at ALL times. At the very least they should have T-shirt, shorts and plimsolls in school. We will be learning rounders this term with Mrs Barrett and Athletics with Mrs Thomas.

Remember to name your child’s property

Also, just a reminder that lost items are far more likely to return to their owners if they are clearly named! That includes any pens, pencil cases, lunch boxes etc as well as clothes.

Spellings

Each Friday, your child will be given 7 statutory words (that may include a maths term) and 7 words from a spelling pattern. I will then add on 2 extra words based on the spelling pattern in their test each week to make 16 spellings.

Times tables

We will be doing times table challenges most Tuesdays. Times tables are extremely important in their numeracy and are linked to lots of topics in the curriculum e.g. division, fractions. Please encourage your child to practise daily at home.

Homework

We will continue to alternate English (Comprehension and SPaG) and Maths every Friday. Please encourage your children to complete this work as independently as possible as we are only one term away from year 6! Homework is usually always based on what we have been learning in class and I will explain to children methods and expectations when the work is set each week. If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Many thanks,

Miss Kostiw, Mrs Rose and Mrs Price.
