I'm an explorer... GET ME OUT OF HERE!
Hello everyone and welcome back. I hope you had a lovely half term.
Our next topic is explorers! We'll be layering up and preparing for the harsh conditions of Antarctica, because we'll be following in the footsteps of the great Ernest Shackleton.
We'll be exploring lots of interesting facts about Shackleton and preparing to become explorers ourselves, so I hope you're ready...
See below our topic grid for this half term and the topic homework to be presented just before our Christmas break.
Autumn 1 2017-2018
Once Upon a Time…
Our first topic is called Once Upon a Time! This means that we will be looking at a lot of different fairy tales, including: Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast and Rapunzel. Can you think of your favourite fairy tale? If you can, make sure to let us know as we might even read it for our story time.
Below, please find our Topic Web and our Homework Grid. The Topic Web will give you all the information about what you will be learning this term and the Homework Grid for the end of term afternoon for your parents/carers.
The time has come for us to pack away our summer clothes and return back to school. I can’t believe where the time has gone, but I would like to say welcome back for a new year in Elm Class! I am so excited to welcome everyone into their new class with their new teacher. I hope that you will have as much fun learning and I will from teaching you all.
PE days are Wednesday and Thursday. Wednesday is indoor PE and Thursday is outdoor PE, so please make sure that you have the right kit with you for those days. Earrings are not allowed during PE so please don’t wear them or you have a safe place to put them during our lessons. Also, long hair needs to be tied back so bring a spare hair band.
Homework will be given on a Friday and expected back on the following Thursday.
We will also be doing a weekly spelling test. The spellings will be given to you on Friday and the test will be the following Thursday.
Reading is very important and therefore, you need to be reading 3 times a week. Please make sure that your reading folders and books come to school every day.
Again, I am so excited to begin this new term with you all and I hope you are ready to learn lots of new things!
