Yellow Class

Special Places Topic

This week we have started our new topic of Special Places, with a focus on art and RE. Specifically, these subjects will help us to explore collage and Sikhism.

If you would like to do any homework over the remaining weeks then here are some ideas to help your learning:

  • Reading every night for at least 10 minutes to help develop confidence and fluency.
  • Times table facts for 3s, 4s, 8s and 11s (In school, we are focussing on our 8s at the moment, particularly 8 x 6, 8 x 7 and 8 x 8).
  • Add and subtract 9, 19 and 29 to numbers close to boundaries. For example, 504 – 19 (- 20, + 1) or 397 + 9 (+ 10, - 1).
  • Research Sikhism by picking a book at the library to get a head start on our RE learning.

Welcome Back

Hello Yellow Class families,

What a lovely week we have had! Well done Yellow Class for a great start to the year and for settling into your new classroom so quickly. We started our exciting 'World at War' project and will be learning about the part Blackwell played in World War 1. The children produced some lovely art work that will be available to view on our opening evening.

Our newsletter and homework will be ready to view early next week so please remember to read at home and practise times tables. Forest school will be Tuesday for group 6, Wednesday for group 7 and Thursday for group 8 whilst Sport club will be Thursday for group 6 and 7 and Friday for group 8.

Have a super weekend, I can't wait to see you all again on Monday.

Miss Phipps
