Welcome to Rockies Class
Monday and Tuesdays we are taught by Ms Poole and the rest of the week by Mrs Nightingale. Mrs Clements, Miss Ackland and Miss Boulton are our wonderful teaching assistants.
This half term we will be focusing on improving our sentences by writing a range of different texts and in Maths our main focus will be fractions. In writing they will be learning about different types of sentences and how to edit their work to appeal to the reader.
Homework is sent out each Wednesday and due in on a Monday, this will alternate between Maths and English each week. Spellings are set each Thursday and checked the following Thursday. Reading is very much encouraged every day, the children will have an opportunity to read and change books daily.
In Science we will continue to learn about materials. Our new topic is 'People who have made our lives better', looking in particular at Florence Nightingale.
We have made a fact sheet that was handed out at the start of the topic detailing what we will be learning.
Topic Fact Sheets can be viewed here:
We have lots of specialist teachers in our team this year, Coach Catherine from P and E Sports will be teaching team games on a Monday afternoon and Madame Nedia will be teaching us French on a Wednesday. Mrs Nightingale will be teaching dance on a Thursday afternoon.
