Beech class is now Birch class.
This term in Birch as well as taking an exciting look into the Ancient Greeks will be focusing of fractions and measure in our Maths leaning. Exploring fractions of numbers and recognising equivalent fractions. We have been really enjoying our English work so far and will continue to uncover more of our Read Write Inc. story books, where we will be increasing our word recognition and targeting our spelling and handwriting skills. It’s been a great first two weeks into the term and we are looking forward to more fantastic work!
The pupils are all doing 'Read, Write, inc. or Fresh Start. This includes phonics, handwriting, reading and writing.
In maths, pupils will be working using 'White Rose' and Abacus resources. https://whiterosemaths.com
During the autumn term all of our pupils studied a brilliant unit on superheroes, the next unit of work was Richard III to Henry VIII.
During the spring term pupils will be starting with a week's unit on 'Animal Science' (including a trip to Desford's Tropical Birdland). This will lead into three weeks of 'Gory Greek Myths', then Chinese New Year and Science Week.
