Pine Class – Miss Wood

Welcome to Pine class!

Teacher: Miss Wood

LSA: Mrs Graham and Mrs Kent (LSA 1:1).

 

Topics

 

This Term our topic is ‘What Happened in Pompeii?’

We will be studying volcanoes and where they are in the world. We will also be making our own volcanoes in Design Technology.

After half term, our topic will be ‘Were the Romans revolting or remarkable?’

We will be studying when and why the Romans invaded Britain, what evidence is there that the Romans were in Britain, who Boudica was and why she became so famous and what life was like for rich and poor Romans.

Reading

It is expected that children read every day and their reading record is signed at least 3 times a week (5 if possible). This will all count towards their Reading Olympics.

Homework

* Homework will be set every Friday. This should be handed in on the following Thursday.

* Alongside daily reading, homework will include spellings (weekly) and a Maths activity (MyMaths or another Maths activity). It is important that children are encouraged to complete their homework independently and that it is simply overseen by adults.

* Homework will be monitored by the class teacher.

* Please do not hesitate to seek guidance from the class teacher if there are any issues regarding homework.

PE Reminders

All children should have a P.E. kit in school which consists of:

* red shorts, white t-shirt and plimsolls / trainers (to walk over to the hall) for indoor P.E. Indoor P.E. will be bare foot.

* jogging bottoms, tracksuit top and trainers for outdoor P.E.

* NOTE- Please provide a note if children do need to keep shoes on for any reason.

Your child’s P.E. days are Tuesday AM and Thursday PM.

Children need to have their kit in a labelled bag and please ensure that all pieces of clothing, including trainers and plimsolls, are named. If girls wear tights to school, they should have a pair of socks to wear with trainers.

No jewellery. (Earrings are not allowed to be taped over.)

Long hair needs to tied back. (this is at all times).

General Reminders

Please ensure your child arrives at school on time- 8:50am, to ensure they are able to complete their early morning work and to settle them into the start of the school day.
