Cedar Class

Welcome to Cedar class!

Cedar class' Harvest Festival poem

Our topic this term (which we will be doing lots of exciting work around) is:

Journeys

The class came up with some fantastic questions on journeys, which we will be exploring over the course of this term:

  • What are some famous journeys?
  • What is the longest journey you can take?
  • What is the fastest plane?
  • Why can’t we go to other planets?
  • What secret journeys have happened?
  • What makes a journey a journey?
  • Should we treat life as a journey?
  • Do animals also have (conscious) journeys like people do?
  • Should we travel to other galaxies?

We aim to answer these questions, and more, throughout the term!

Mundford junction dates

As of this time, we are unable to offer Mundford junctions.

Collective worship

We will be having daily collective worship sessions in class whilst we are in our class ‘bubbles’. Our collective worship theme for this term is ‘Kindness’, one of our school values. We will be exploring the following question as part of our collective worship sessions:

Do you have to like someone to be kind to them?

Homework and P.E. dates:

Monday

On a Monday the class will be taught a new spelling rule. They will write this down and place this in their ‘going home’ folder. The spelling homework is to revise and memorise the rule, and find some words which follow the rule. On a Friday I will choose some random words to which the rule relates and test the children’s ability to spell them correctly.

Tuesday

Cedar class have P.E. on a Tuesday afternoon, and so will need to wear their P.E. kit to school.

Please ensure that earrings are removed for P.E.

Wednesday

On a Wednesday the children will be given some Maths homework to extend their in-class learning,

Thursday

Cedar class have P.E. on a Thursday afternoon, and so will need to wear their P.E. kit to school.

Friday

Spellings will be tested on a Friday. A topic or theme based homework will also be issued where appropriate.

 

In addition to the issued homework, there is an expectation that the children will all be reading for at least 20 minutes every day. This can be recorded in their yellow reading log.

There is also an expectation that the children will be independently practicing their times tables at home.
