Our class teacher is Miss Allsop and we are also supported by Miss Knapp and Mrs Somerset, our teaching assistants.
This term our topic is 'The Show Must Go On!' In History we are learning about how entertainment has changed over time, including a focus on William Shakespeare as a significant individual in history. Our focus questions for our history topic are 'has technology changed entertainment for the better?' and 'is entertainment now less sociable?'. In Design and Technology we are focusing on textiles and are creating our own puppets. Later in the term we will be focusing on Buxton as our local Geography study whereby we will look at local attractions such as The Buxton Opera House.
PE is on Mondays and Wednesdays and children should come to school in their full kits which should include clothing suitable for outdoor PE.
The children will all bring home weekly homework which will include maths and spellings. Maths homework may be a worksheet, or it may be set online on MyMaths. The children all have their own log in for this site. The spellings sent home will consist of the appropriate Common Exception Words. Children are also encouraged to read every night at home to an adult as part of their homework.
