The Gazelles would like to welcome you to our class page, we are going to be working extremely hard this term, ready for the exciting challenges ahead!
Miss Lamb is the class teacher and Mrs May will be our Teaching Assistant during the mornings. Mrs Helliwell will teach the Gazelles on a Monday afternoon and Miss Harper and Mrs Duxbury-Mead will teach the Gazelles during Tuesday afternoons.
This term our project lessons will be Geography focussed as we will be looking at Our Changing World. We will be learning about the physical geography aspects of coaslitnes, erosion as well as looking at some environmental issues. Alongside this, we will be continuing our Continuous Provision sessions. Our Science this term will be Properties and Changes of Materials, which will include a range of exciting investigations!
During the Summer Term, the Gazelles will be taking part in PE lessons on a Tuesday 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 goindoors. 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! Use Scholastic Reading Pro at 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.
