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: 'Lions 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 Geography topic this half term will be all about Brazil! After half term we will be switching to History and studying the Stone Age!
Our Science topics this term are Rocks until the February half term when it will change to plants!!!
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 Maths 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 practicing their mental maths skills and strategies to help with basic number skills. We expect you to know your number bonds to 10 and 20.
Over half term every student in Lion Class needs to complete 3 studio games on Times Table Rock Stars. Remember to practice as much as possible, there is a new app for apple and iPhones!!! Several students have already moved up our new Rock Status Display!!!
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
