Green Class

WOW we had fun!

 

24 of Green Class took part in the amazing Young Voices concert - with another eight and a half thousand children. We all had an amazing time - I heard several of the children rate it one of the top 3 days of their whole lives!

 

We were so lucky to be given suites this year (instead of the top top row of the last few years). We were very well looked after indeed!

 

We enjoyed great performances from (and with) Tony Hadley, Ruti, The Shires and (our favourite) Urban Stride. With an amazing set of music, a great band, a professional and talented conductor - we have covered most of the key stage 2 music curriculum!

 

Thank you to everyone that came along to support us. I hope you had a wonderful time.

Welcome to Green Class! We are the team that are so excited to continue leadiing Green Class this year; Mrs Hurst, Mrs Rose, Miss Johnson, Miss Lippard and Mr Hutchinson. 

 

Happy New Year and welcome to Term 3. 

 

Last term we started teaching our afternoon subjects in blocks. This means that we will be grouping together all of the terms lessons for that subject into a week of afternoons. This should help the children to make connections between the lessons.

 

Term 3,  2019-2020

 

English

Stig of the Dump

As part of our Stone Age topic, we will be using this modern classic to inspire our writing.

Maths

We will be continuing to work on the four operations, using more formal methods. Keep revising your times tables and using Times Tables Rock Stars.

Science

Rocks and soil.

History

Stone Age.

 

RE

Christianity

We will be looking at some of the miracles of Jesus.

Music

Of course we will be going to the O2 for the Young Voices concert on 22nd January. Don't forget that children will need to know the lyrics by then!

After the concert, we will be starting to learn the recorder. There are school recorders - that I will have sterilised - to borrow. You may prefer to provide your child with their own instrument. Each instrument will be named for hygiene reasons.

Art

We will be creating Cave paintings in art.

 

 

Computing In computing we will be learning to use and make spreadsheets.

PE

Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday.

We will be playing netball this term.

French

We will be learning French names for clothing and colours. We will use the familiar story, Little Red Riding Hood.

 

 

PE kits

Please make sure your child has their full PE kit in school at all times. It is important that the children have everything named. Please remember the socks (especially once it gets cold and the girls switch to tights) and to check that trainers or plimsols fit comfortably.

If your child has pierced ears it is extremely important that they do not wear earrings during PE lessons - if this is difficult for your child to do independently please remove them at home. Children must have jumpers and trousers for outside PE.

 

Homework

Our homework will follow the same format as in previous terms. We will give 10 pieces of homework at the start of each term and each week the children should choose what they would like to do from that list. Homework is set on a Friday and due in on Wednesday. We will share it with each other every Thursday morning.

 

Spelling

Each Friday, your child will be given weekly spellings. Now that the children are in Key Stage 2, I will no longer be printing these but asking the children to copy them out from the board. Don't worry - they'll be on the website if you are concerned that your child might struggle with accuracy. These will be tested on Friday morning and will include a range of statutory words, maths terminology or statutory spelling patterns. 

 

Times tables

It is very important that children keep practicing their times tables. They should already be confident with 2s, 5s and 10s but we will keep revisiting them. They will also need to learn their 3s, 4s and 8s this year. There are loads of ways to make this sort of learning a bit more fun. The school expects all children to log onto Times Table Rock Stars for at least 10 minutes a week.

 

These links are for some other online games that are quite popular with our children at Offham.
