Welcome to The Explorers Class!
The Explorers Team:
PE this term will be on Tuesday and Friday afternoons, when we will work on our Mini Mermaid and Young Triton skills through personal, social, cognitive and creative skills. Children need a PE kit in school every day (please check our information pages if you need a reminder about the kit). Children should wear trainers outside and pumps inside, they may also bring long jogging bottoms for outdoor PE.
Spellings are sent home on a Friday and tested on the following Friday, spellings may be linked to our Literacy or Topic work alternatively spellings will be based on the words/spelling rules they are required to learn in year 3/4. Termly creative homework will be set, each week, the children must complete one piece from the sheet in their homework books and return their books to school every Friday. It would also be very beneficial for children to practice their times-tables, which they can do by logging on to 'Times Table Rockstars', and to practice their handwriting when they have the opportunity. Class visits are on Thursday mornings this term, we look forward to welcoming you into the classroom between 8:45 and 9:00am to spend quality time sharing a book with your child.
Our topic theme this term is '60 years of Eureka' celebrating the schools 60th Birthday. Each class will be looking at a specific decade over the last 60 years, and ours is the 80's! The creative homework will link with our cross curricular work and science this term.
At the end of each week we will celebrate the children's learning by choosing our 'WOW' work of the week, this is a piece of work that has been completed to a high standard, meeting the learning objective and meeting all the expected criteria for the lesson, this will be displayed in the classroom for one week. We also have a special helper system, where two children are chosen at random each day to help out around the classroom, each child will receive a turn.
Please let one of the Explorers team know if we can be of any help with your child's learning or answer any questions you may have.
