Welcome to Falcons’ Class!
Welcome back to our second term of the academic year. We can’t believe how quickly the year is going!
This term, we are continuing with our topic is ‘Crime and Punishment’. We will be looking at primary and secondary evidence, and how crime and punishment has evolved over the years. We will also link our writing to this, looking specifically at ‘The Highwayman’ by Alfred Noyes.
In Science, we have been learning about our solar system. To help us understand how different planets move, we made our own solar system models. Take a look!
In PE, we have been doing Basketball and learning about how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Take a look at some of the fun we have been having!
Homework will be set on a Wednesday and it will need to be handed back in the following Monday to the class teacher. It is advisable to look at your child’s homework with them on Wednesday evening to ensure they are clear of the task/s involved. This way, if they need any further clarification, they have Thursday and Friday to speak to the class teacher who can help them. All homework tasks will be clearly explained when they are given out.
Children will have PE for two lessons a week – this term it is handball and basketball. PE will be on Wednesday and Thursday. However, we will have extra sessions on occasion so we would like children to bring PE kit in on a Monday and take it home for washing on a Friday. Please could children wear the appropriate kit for PE: black/navy shorts, white t-shirt and either trainers or daps. As the weather may be cold, they should also bring in a warm training top and tracksuit bottoms that are ideally black, navy or grey in colour.
Some of the children will be doing Bikeability sessions soon. Please find the bike check form below.
