This year your class teacher is Miss Wickison, we are also very lucky to have Mrs Corner on a Tuesday morning. Our class teaching assistant is Mrs Coster, we also have Mrs Anderson and Mrs Lewis-Webber supporting children in the class. We are all here to help and make your time in Lion Class as happy as possible.
Our class motto is: 'Lion's take pride in their work' and all we ask is that you try your best at all times and challenge yourselves! As together we can earn but only if we're willing to accept a challenge! We believe in having fun when learning and make our lessons as interactive as possible. We also believe that mistakes should not be something to worry about as we cannot learn without mistakes, it is simply a part of learning. So please, have a go!
Our History topic this term is the Romans! This then means that after half term we will switch to Geography and will be learning about Volcanoes and Earthquakes!
Whilst in Science we will be studying Animals including Humans up until half term! After half term our Science topic will be changing to Light as the days start to grow darker.
Lion Class's Library day is on a Thursday this year, I know that that class enjoy the opportunity to explore the library and choose new books to read that might not be available in the classroom! It has been interesting to see the wide range of books that Lion Class have chosen over the past two terms!
In Numeracy topics change frequently, but you should be learning your times tables; especially 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 x tables for tests on a Friday afternoon. At home you should be practising their mental maths skills and strategies to help with basic number skills. We expect you to know your number bonds to 10 and 20.
This week's homework is to practice their Harvest Festival song and create a fruit/vegetable puppet for their performance!!
Regular reading at home and keeping your reading record up to date is important to build on reading done at school. Reading records will be collected in on Mondays. Now you are in the Juniors, changing finished books is your responsibility and your books must be in school every day please. There is also time for quiet reading most afternoons, this allows our students time to read their books in their own time and enjoy books, this will mean that this time will not be recorded in their Reading Record books but as Juniors they are expected to follow what they have read responsibly.
Many thanks Miss Wickison
