Welcome to Cedar Class!
Welcome back to Cedar Class!!
As we return from a hopefully relaxing but enjoyable Summer break it is hoped that children will arrive back in class reinvigorated and ready to tackle the new challenges that will present themselves within the “Cedar” classroom! As always, bringing to school and wearing appropriate clothing is still as important as ever and keeping an eye on it and remembering where you put it, still applies!
Our topic this half term is “Roald Dahl” and we shall be looking at his book “The Twits” to stimulate the children’s interest including settings, character descriptions and plots in story writing. In guided reading we continue to build on previous work on the skill of “inference” when exploring a text and look more closely at comprehension skill. In Maths “We dig Maths” continues, where hopefully parents can continue to assist their child at home. Elsewhere, we shall be looking at Ancient Greece, States of Matter and continuing to teach basic phrases in German. In Art, we plan to examine the artist Quentin Blake. We shall also be looking at Philosophy through the “P4C programme, encouraging children to think more deeply about different issues and moral questions
The Homework policy continues with an updated Roald Dahl “Pick n Mix” sheet in Homework books. Please ensure children DO tackle a piece of homework each week,
I’m usually about as the children arrive at school, so if you have any questions about anything, please don’t hesitate to ask me.
Cedar Mundford Junction
The first one is planned for Wednesday 17th October at 2.15p.m.
We hope to see you there!
Mrs Green is working with me every morning and some afternoon’s in Cedar class this term, helping to support the children’s learning.
Monday: Spellings tested. New spellings are given out.
Wednesday: Adventure Playground (trainers or plimsoles needed). Please return homework by today.
Thursday: PE (kit and trainers needed) In colder weather, could you please put in extra socks and jogging bottoms, in case we choose to go outside. It is disappointing that many children have recently begun to “forget” their PE kit. Please help me to help children to remain fit and healthy by ensuring they have the correct kit at all times.
Friday: Homework given out today.
Behaviour Trackers given out.
Every day: The children need waterproof trainers or boots for playing on the field. Maths “We dig Maths” sessions take place most days and we following the PATHS programme which includes recognising a “Child of the Day” and discovering new exciting adjectives.
