Welcome to Buzzards Class!!
A warm welcome to Buzzards class from Mrs Scoynes, Mrs Kay, Mrs Bennett and myself. We have a busy term ahead where our topic is based on DT ‘Young Enterprise’. We very much enjoyed taste testing the children’s ‘technical challenge’ that they baked over half term – we hope you enjoyed tasting them too! The children will be designing and making their own biscuits and packaging.
The children will be given their homework on a Wednesday, it is due back in on a Monday and will alternate between spelling and times tables activities. They will need to practise both each week, but they will also have a focussed activity to do.
We are currently having a big push on reading. It would be really appreciated if you can encourage your child to read frequently at home, this really helps them at school in other areas of their learning. We are all asking that the children in our classes read at least three times a week and those that do so will be rewarded with a treat! This doesn’t need to be their school reading book, but any reading material or genre that they are interested in. It needs to be recorded by an adult in their reading record. This will be counted up each week.
Don’t forget Mathletics! Playing this regularly really supports the children in their learning of maths and is great fun! The children also have log-in details for ‘My Maths’ whereby homework is sometimes set and completed on-line. We now have access to Times Tables Rock Stars which is also proving very helpful with the children’s times tables recall. They all have a password, so can continue with this at home.
There are also lots of interactive activities available on the internet including TopMarks which the children are familiar with.
If you wish to speak to me about anything, please come and see me. Many thanks,
