Welcome to Murray Class
Your Teacher: Miss Isaac
Your LSA: Mrs Inglis
This term we will be exploring the question ‘Are you as strong as a Saxon?’.
We will be learning about what life was like to be a Saxon from what they ate, through to when they lived.
Our class reader is 'Beowulf'. We will be reading an adapted version of the epic poem, retold by Rob Lloyd Jones and our Literacy is linked around this book.
In Maths this term we will be learning about money; recognising money, adding money and giving change.
Our PE lessons take place on Monday & Tuesday so please make sure PE kits remain in school. Please ensure earrings are not worn on PE days.
Children are required to read for at least 15 minutes every day, either to themselves or to an adult. Reading records must also be signed (this can be done by the child) and brought into school each day.
Homework will be sent out every Friday and is to be completed by the following Thursday. The homework will always have a spelling focus and either a Literacy or Maths focus.
We will also be introducing STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Music) projects each term. Children will be set a project to complete at home with family members. At the end of each term we will celebrate the children’s successes. This term the children have been set the project of creating a Saxon shield.
We believe that your child should be encouraged to apply their knowledge and understanding of the world around them in innovative and creative new ways. We want our children to take thoughtful risks, work collaboratively, engage in experiential learning and persist in problem-solving. Our children will be tomorrow’s leaders!
This year, STEAM Projects will be introduced at the beginning of each new term and your child will be encouraged to complete “mini” projects at home with you. At the end of each term, your child will be invited to present their project and findings with their classmates at a STEAM celebration.
This term's STEAM project is to create a Saxon shield.
