Blue Class 2020

Hello Blue Class,

We hope you are enjoying your summer break and have had a good rest and are feeling ready and raring to go for a new school year. We look forward to welcoming you back to school next Thursday where we have lots of exciting learning ready for you starting with a 'Through the Ages' topic. The prehistoric people you created during your virtual transition session are proudly displayed in your new classroom ready for you to see.

Enjoy the last few days of the holiday. After all of the rest and play you've had and to get your brain ready for learning, it would be a good idea to do some reading and check you still know those times table facts you learned last year over the next few days. You might even want to investigate the Bronze Age and Iron Age too.

See you very soon.

Love from Miss Townsend, Miss Kuriger, Mrs Marks and Miss Burgess x

P.S. It's been a long time since we have done a full day's learning, so it would be a good idea to start having some early nights so that we are full of energy for the new term.

Super Stars!

Well done Blue Class for your wonderful Off to Scotland assembly on Thursday. Your singing, retelling, musical skills, speaking and dancing were all fantastic and I know your families were truly entertained and had a lovely morning sharing in your learning. I was very proud of you all. 

We start a new 'Special Places' topic tomorrow which will last for two weeks. For homework, I would like you to have a really good focus on developing your reading skills and times table recall. Spend at least 10 minutes each night on both of these things and you will really notice the difference in your progress. Ask your grown ups to ask you questions from your laminated reading card when you read and talk to them about any tricky words or concepts that you come across to develop your understanding of language. In school, we are focusing on the 8 times table at the moment (particularly 8 x 6, 8 x 7, 8 x 8, 8 x 9 and 8 x 12). Learning them by heart (memorising them) is the aim and not counting on your fingers to get the answers. If you are secure with these facts (can recall them in 3-5 seconds), move onto the 6 times table which we will be learning after half term.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend my super stars and I'll see you in the morning.
