Welcome to Green Class! We are so excited to all be back in school and it's a pleasure to see all of our children who are excited to learn. We've got a great year planned!

 

We have got such a busy term ahead, packed full of what promises to be fun and interesting topics! Check out what we've got planned for this term below.

 

Term 1,  2020-2021

 

English

Romans on the Rampage

This term, we will be using 'Romans on the Rampage' to write a range of non-fiction texts. We'll be looking at the characters of the story and using them to research more about the Ancient Romans. 

Maths

We are starting with place value - looking at numbers to 1000. We will be building our concrete understanding of numbers and then will be moving on to addition and subtraction towards the end of term.

Science

Light. 

History

Revolutionary Romans.

We will be learning about the Roman Empire, Boudicca's rebellion and their religious beliefs.  

RE

Diwali - we will be learning about how it is celebrated and the story of Rama and Sita.

Music

We will be learning how to play the glockenspiel. 

Art/DT

We will be making money pouches using felt and our new sewing skills. 

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

PE

Our PE days are Monday and Tuesday.

We will be 'striking and fielding' 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 athletics lessons.

French

We will be learning numbers 1 - 12, body parts and some key vocabulary.
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. We will start by giving the children a printed set of spellings to stick into their books however we will eventually be 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.
