Welcome to Hawthorn Class
Hawthorn class is taught by Ms Beveridge. Mrs Tomlin-Barfoot is the teaching assistant.
Each half term, the class will be set a homework project linked to their curriculum theme. In order to make maths fun and enjoyable, we will also send a maths fluency fact sheet home for the term, which gives the opportunity for children to spot mathematical patterns, make mathematical connections and speed up their calculation skills. They will also have a list of spellings for the term. All of the letters, which contain this information, are recorded on this page under Hawthorn Curriculum Information.
During a normal school week PE is on a Monday, however due to Covid guidelines, we are currently asking children to come in PE kit every day. Please ensure that long hair is tied back and that if your child cannot take out their own earrings that they are taken out before school. We will be trying to get outside as much as possible, so please ensure clothing is weather appropriate.
Your child has been given an independent reading book to read at home, which is suitable to their word recognition and comprehension skills. Please read with your child daily and record their reading in their reading record.
This Term's Theme: Incredible Illustrators.
Our Learning Journey for Summer Term 1 is Incredible Illustrators.
Our theme for Summer Term 1 closely links History and Art.
In History we will be exploring the work and lives of different illustrators. The children will be able to name famous British illustrators, knowing if they lived in the past or the current day. They will use sources such as pictures and photographs to help them answer questions and explain events in the illustrator’s lives. In Art we will delve deeper into the work of illustrators and examine their style of illustration. We will develop our drawing skills and use colours, materials and collage to create illustrations.
In Writing we are starting the term with a narrative piece using the story ‘The Marvellous Fluffy Squishy Itty Bitty’. We will then move on to writing poetry. In maths Cherry and Maple class will focus on place value, multiplication and division and shape, Hawthorn class will focus on geometry, measurement and problem solving.
Ready, steady, grow! Within our Science lessons we will explore the world of seeds – finding out that different seeds grow into different plants, exploring how seeds are dispersed, observing and describing how a plant changes. In PSHE we will focussing on ‘Relationships’ and thinking about our families and friends, celebrating and appreciating them.
