Welcome to Darwin page.
Your teacher is Mr Marks.
Your Lsa is Mrs Steel.
In Darwin class we have high expectations of all children and we push the children to have high expectations of themselves.
A quote we learn by is:
"No-one will be disappointed if you get it wrong, we will only be disappointed if you do not try".
We expect all children to come to school on time, dressed appropriately and ready for the learning day.
Children are expected to read every night and to bring in their reading records signed.
Homework is set on a Friday and is to be handed in by the following Thursday before 9am. Unless you have homework club on a Thursday night when it can be handed in Friday morning before 9am.
Our class is named after the famous scientist Charles Darwin and over the course of the year we will be learning a lot about him.
Each child is encouraged to read every day and take quizzes to show their understanding of these books Children who read one million words go on a 'reward trip.'So far our top 10 readers are:
Jenascia 3,459,265 (Outstanding!)
Rana 1,533,028 (Fantastic!)
Serenity 1,259,619 (Wonderful!
Dominik 1,238,519 (Superb!)
Stephanie 1,191,295 (Amazing!)
Theo 1,190,206 (Brilliant!)
Children will be given a learning at home project to complete each half term which will link with theme of work they are learning about in class. Children will also be given spellings and maths to practice each week which will also relate to what we have been learning in class this week.
