We have all worked so hard for our special assembly - thank goodness for technology allowing us to record it. Unfortunately I can't find a way to share it with you. I will keep trying but it might be that (when we finally get back to school) we will have to do a special showing of the video at some point. I'm so sorry to disappoint you!

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.

Green class welcome page

 

Welcome to Green Class! We are the team that are still  excited to continue leading Green Class this year; Mrs Hurst, Mrs Rose, Miss Johnson and Miss Lippard. Sadly we will no longer be having Mr Hutchinson helping us.

 

Welcome to term 4. We have got a busy term, packed full of what promises to be fun and interesting topics. This term, we will be sharing a lot of our learning in our special assembly - Wednesday 25th March. 

 

Book week is starting on Monday 2nd March. There will be a dance workshop all about The Lorax by Dr Seus, on Tuesday, which we will use as  a stimulus for story writing throughout the week. We will be dressing up on Thursday.

 

Term 4,  2019-2020

 

English

Tornadoes

 

This term, I have decided not to base our learning on a book. Instead, we will be researching tornadoes for a fact file. We will also be magpie -ing ideas from The Wizard of Oz to help us to create our own adventure stories.

Maths

We will be starting to look at statistics - covering tables, tallies, pictograms and bar charts. We will then look at area and perimeter. Hopefully we will also have time to look at fractions.

Keep revising your times tables and using Times Tables Rock Stars - they will be so useful for area and fractions!

Science

Plants. We will be looking at parts of a plant and pollination.

Geography.

Angry Earth. We are going to be learning about vocanoes, earthquakes and tornadoes.

RE

Christianity

We will be learning about the Easter story, thinking especially about what is good about Good Friday.

Music

We are now learning the recorder. Please make sure that if your child chooses to bring it home to practise, it comes back every Wednesday.

 

We are going to focusing on rounds this term as we learn the basic techniques. We will perform in the Easter music service on the last day of term.

Art/DT

We will be creating Volcano sculptures.

 

 

Computing We are going to be learning touch typing. Look out for some activities on Purple Mash.

PE

Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday.

We will be playing football this term on Wednesdays. It is likely that the field will be muddy, so please feel free to provide clothing that you don't mind getting messy, if you are worried about the state of the PE kits!

On Mondays the children will be having health and fitness lessons.

French

We will be learning the names for some classroom objects and recognising words from a story.

 

PSHE We will be recognising what we are good at and setting goals. We will also be thinking about recognising and managing our feelings.

 

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.
