Green class welcome page

 

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. 

 

This year will consist of variety of magnificent topics including Ancient Greeks, British Railways and some that we'd like to keep as a surprise!

 

We look forward to exploring what the children want to know and how they approach certain problems, as we believe that we will learn a thing or two from them (and hopefully vice versa!) Obviously the class go way back to last January with me, but the rest of the team are going to love this class!

 

Welcome to Term 2.

 

Term 2,  2019-2020

 

English

The Train to Impossible Places

We will be using this exciting new book by P.G Bell to inspire our writing this term. We will be doing some descriptive writing, newspaper reports, persuasive writing and arguments.

Maths

We will be continuing to work on addition and subtraction. Then we will move on to multiplication and division - so please make sure that you are ready with your times tables knowledge.

Science

Forces and Magnets

History

British Railways.

We will be learning about the first locomotives, how they have changed over time and how technology has changed the way we travel.

If you have any topic related books to share during guided reading - we would be very grateful!

RE

Christianity

We will be looking at the Nativity story, the meaning of Christmas and what Christmas means to us.

Music

Singing for Performance.

We will be learning some fabulous Christmas songsfor the KS2 production in December.

Please, please, please keep practicing for Young Voices at home - you will need to know all of the lyrics when we go to the O2!

Art/DT/Computing

In Art and DT we are going to be designing and making a model train.

 

We are going to have a go at some coding in computing lessons.

PE

Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday.

 

French

We will be learning body parts, a snowman story and the months of the year - including making a calendar.

 

 

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.

 

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 useful 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. you could chant them on the stairs, shout them loudly while maintaining a tennis rally in the garden, whisper them in the supermarket. My Mum used to test me every morning when she did my hair. It doesn't matter how you do it, but please do it regularly to force them into your child's long term memory.

 

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