Welcome to Faraday class!
We are looking forward to a great year ahead. My name is Miss Goult and I will be your teacher this year. Working with us are our learning assistants - Mrs Lakey and Mrs Stroud. Our topic this Summer term will be Ancient Greece and we have lots of exciting learning planned- Do you already know any facts about Ancient Greece?
In English, we will be reading 'Theseus and the Minotaur' written by Hugh Lupton and Daniel Morden. Our English will include a number of experience lessons and continuing to build on our writing and vocabulary skills, working our way to the independent write. Our second unit will be non-fiction based on how to make a robot dog!
In maths we will continue to look at fractions and then move on our learning to time and shapes. What can you remember about these topics already Faraday?
Times tables are a very important area of our learning. The children have logins for Times Tables Rock Stars, which is brilliant for practicing their times tables. Every Friday, the children will attempt to defeat a superhero, so please practice your times tables at any opportunity Faraday!
In science this term, we will be looking at electricity and sound. How does Michael Faraday relate to one of these units?
I've attached some homework ideas which I hope you will all find interesting. Please can homework books be sent in Monday 16th May 2022 and Monday 11th July 2022 to be included in the half-termly tick sheets.
PE will be Mondays and Thursdays but, with no changing at school, please make sure children come into school in their PE kit on those days. Please ensure that you have sufficiently warm outdoor kit. We will still be working in the classroom with doors and windows open so please make sure that all children are warmly dressed for the classroom as well as for PE.
We expect the children to be reading at home daily. Please encourage children to practice their spellings at home since we will be doing a little less practice in the classroom this term.
Be Ready, Be Safe, Be Responsible - here's to our last term as Faraday, lets make it a great one!
