This term our teacher is Mrs Crane with support from our Mrs Green. Mrs Green also teaches us on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons.
Our topic this term is Location, Location, Location! We will be exploring the village of Breadsall, looking at its historic buildings and finding out about some of the people associated with the village. We will be learning how to draw our own maps and read ordnance survey maps. We will also look at world geography.
PE for the whole class is on Friday afternoon with Mr Samuels. We will also be going swimming this term on Tuesday mornings with Mrs Crane and Mrs Green. Please note that long hair must be tied back and earrings removed for safety reasons. There may be extra PE sessions during the week so it is important that PE kits are in school at all times. This term, it would be helpful if children have trainers in school that are suitable for wearing on the field, rather than black plimsolls.
Spellings are given out on a Friday to give a week's preparation for a spelling test. Maths homework is set at the same time and should also be completed by the following Friday. A four week project will also be set for each topic to give the children a chance to pursue and present their own interests.
This year we have the music partnership working with us again to teach music skills to the class using the flute as an example instrument. Many of the skills they learn are transferable to other instruments and children may have the chance to continue their learning beyond the year with private lessons.
