Welcome to Class 12 - Miss Wood
I hope you have all had an amazing summer holiday.
In English we will be writing persuasive letters -
- To persuade children to come to our school (initial write).
- To persuade tourists to visit England (scaffolded write).
- To persuade supermarkets to remove palm oil from their own labelled products (independent write).
In maths we will be focusing on number and place value. We will read, write, order and compare numbers to at least 1 000 000 and determine the value of each digit. We will move on to interpret negative numbers in context, count forwards and backwards with positive and negative whole numbers, including through zero.
Our science topic will be 'animals, including humans'. We will discuss the life cycle of a human and a range of other animals. We will look at the changes that human beings experience as they develop to old age.
In geography we will focus on 'What makes a country appealing to live in?' whereby we will compare the United Kingdom and Brazil.
In design and technology we will look at the diverse range of food available around the world with a focus on Brazil.
In music we will begin to have our wind instrument tuition on Tuesday afternoons.
In outdoor PE we will be focusing on invasion games (hockey) and we will be swimming every Monday afternoon at the Wilmslow Leisure Centre. Please remember your swimming kit and towel.
Outdoor PE will be every Wednesday but please ensure you have your PE kit in school at all times. Girls can you also please remember to tie your hair back.
Our class assembly is on the morning of Friday 27th September. I hope you can come along and watch.
We will send homework home on a Friday. The children will have a new spelling list and a maths book each week. They will also have a grammar and comprehension homework on alternate weeks. Please ensure their completed homework is returned for marking by the following Friday.
Our weekly spelling test will also be on a Thursday.
