The Gazelles would like to welcome you to our class page, we are going to be working extremely hard this term and are ready for the exciting challenges ahead!
Miss Lamb is the class teacher and Mrs May will be our Teaching Assistant during the mornings. Mrs Smith will teach the Gazelles on a Wednesday afternoon and Miss Harper and Mrs Duxbury-Mead will teach the Gazelles on Monday afternoons.
This term our project is the Titanic. We will begin by focussing on migration, understanding what it is and discussing factors for migration. Then our focus will turn to the Titanic's Voyage as we investigate in more detail what happened. Alongside this, we will be continuing to improve our independent style of learning during Continuous Provision sessions. Our Science this term will be Earth and Space. We will be researching all about the different planets in our solar system.
During the Autumn Term, the Gazelles will be taking part in PE lessons on a Monday and a Friday. We will be mainly doing outdoor activities, depending on the weather, so please ensure that you have a T-shirt, shorts and a zip up top along with outdoor trainers, as well as plimsoles for if we go indoors. We also suggest that your child has a water bottle with them to keep themselves hydrated when we are outside on the field. Please could you ensure that if your child has their ears pierced, their earrings are either removed before school or plasters are sent in so they can be covered up.
Homework will be given out every week. On a Friday your child will receive their Maths and English homework, this is due in the following Wednesday. Our aim is that the children will complete this over the weekend and if there is anything they need some extra support with, then it gives them time to ask us before the Wednesday hand in date. It will really benefit us if this is can be supported at home.
Remember to read as much as possible Gazelles! You can use Scholastic Reading Pro at home as well as in School https://educator-slz03.scholasticlearningzone.com/auth/intl/Login/GBRXYTW You can read online books and do quizzes for other books that you have read. Reading every day will also help us in all of our work and when you do hear your child read, please could you note it in their blue reading record - every 5 signed entries will earn a merit!
If you would like to know more about what we are doing, please come in and ask. Please keep your eyes peeled for any dates and further letters.
