Croeso i Dosbarth 7!
Welcome to Class 7!
This term we are using ‘Picture News’ as a source for our topics that we will be covering. Picture News provides real life issues that are being faced in the world today. The children are presented with the theme in our weekly class planning meeting and as a class come up with different ideas and things that they want to learn about in relation to the topic. From this point the children are provided with activities which cover the topics they have shown particular interest in. Through these themes we will be covering all aspects of the curriculum including: Language, Literacy and Communication, Mathematics and Numeracy, Science and Technology, Health and Well Being, Humanities and Expressive Arts.
Children should have the opportunity to develop their skills everyday at home. The children have access to the following sites to support their academic development:
Username: this is the their first name and surname.
Password: this is their RM Maths password
School code: 9mrs
Each child has their own login for first news.
Please can you listen to your child read as often as possible, ideally daily. Your child is allowed to change their book every day. Please ensure your child brings their reading book /record to school every day.
Each Monday your child will receive a list of spellings. They will be tested on Friday.
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.
Please can you make sure your child has the
following kit fully labelled in a bag:
· White T-shirt
· Black or navy shorts
· Pumps or trainers
PE takes place on:-
Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
