Welcome to Hedgehog Class!
This Year Hedgehog class will be taught by Ms Beveridge and Miss Cumley with Mrs Roberts supporting in the morning.
Our PE day is Friday. Please ensure that correct PE uniform is in school on these days. A gentle reminder that layers will be needed as the weather begins to cool for autumn and winter.
Maths homework will be set termly, with different fluency facts being sent home each term for the children to practise at home. A termly project will also be sent home, which will relate to our current topic.
Your child has been given an independent reading book to read at home, which is suitable to their word recognition and comprehension skills. They should record their reading in their reading records.
This Term's Theme: Bright lights, Big City!
Our theme for the Autumn Term begins with a Geography and Design focus on our wonderful capital city: London. We will be using our reading skills to research inquiry questions about the United Kingdom and our mapping skills to name, locate and identify characteristics of the capital cities in the UK. We will be using our science knowledge to investigate different materials which will help us in Design and technology to build strong and stable structures and bridges just like the ones that cross the River Thames. In English our key text is: The Queen’s hat. The children will be using this to explore and write informatively about the landmarks in London and will be writing to entertain by describing and recounting the journey the hat takes. In maths this term the focus is on Place value. The children will use resources to explore the values of different numbers and learn to compare 2 digit numbers using mathematical symbols.
