Welcome to Class 11!
This term our topic will be The Tudors. We will be learning about Henry VIII and his six wives, Tudor life, Sir Frances Drake and William Shakespeare. We are studying History, Art, Design and Technology, Numeracy, Literacy, Information Communication Technology and Music through the topic. We will be going on a trip to Chirk Castle to link to our topic. In Literacy we will be writing a biography, narrative, journalistic and reading the book Room 13.
This term we will be attending Wrexham Swimming baths every Tuesday. Your child will need to bring a swimming costume/swimming shorts, a towel and goggles (optional) in a bag with £1.00 for the bus.
Children should be reading everyday at home. The children have access to the following sites to support their reading development:
Username: this is the first 4 letters of your first name followed by the first 4 letters of your surname
Password: this is your RM Maths password
School code: 9mrs
Each child has their own login for first news.
Each Monday your child will receive a list of spellings. They will be tested on Fridays.
A piece of Maths or English or topic work that supports the work in class will also be sent home each week. This homework needs to be returned by Friday at the latest—the earlier the better.
