Welcome to Rockies Class
Monday and Tuesdays we are taught by Ms Poole and the rest of the week by Mrs Nightingale. Mrs Clements and Miss Boulton are our wonderful teaching assistants.
This half term we will be focusing on basic sentence structure and number formation in Year 1, while our Year 2 will be building on their number knowledge to understand larger 2 digit numbers, their value and addition facts. In writing they will be further developing their sentence structure, adding detail using interesting vocabulary.
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 the seasons and local wildlife, then move onto Materials. Our new topic is 'The Continents - Asia', looking in particular at Japan, volcanoes and earthquakes. Look out for photos from our Japanese afternoon coming soon!
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 Mrs Jones from Severn Arts Music will be teaching us how to play the recorder on a Wednesday.
Year 1's will continue enjoying swimming lessons at Evesham Leisure Centre, while the Year 2's focus on their performance skills with Mrs Dudfield.
