Hello to all from the fantastic Poldark Class!
Welcome to Poldark class 2019/2020. It has been wonderful to meet your children and they have all had a fantastic, positive start to the year.
We have a great deal of exciting lessons and experiences planned for this half term and cant wait to get learning. Our theme this term is 'Adventure and Explore' and we will be basing lots of our new learning on one of my favourite Disney films Aladdin. The children will take a journey on their own magic carpets across the world beginning in the Middle East and travelling to the continents of our globe. In Geography, they will be learning how to use worlds maps, atlases and globes to identify countries and oceans. In Science the children will find out about the suitability of different materials and their properties.
More information can be found at the bottom of the page on the medium term plan.
This term we will be studying Christianity with a focus on God and exploring the question: What do you think God is like?
This term, the children will be focusing on our new PE charter: Born to Move. Here the children will take part in Zumba, yoga and martial arts which aims to improve their motor skills, agility, balance, co-ordination, endurance, flexibility and speed. The children will also take part in A Mile A Day fitness activities each school day.
We have P.E on Monday afternoons but please be aware that P.E slots may be subject to change. We would appreciate it if P.E kits are kept in school all week. As the weather is getting cooler the children can bring in a tracksuit to wear.
The children can choose a new book each week to take home from our brand new KS1 library. This books is for you to share with your child as a supplement to their Read Write Inc book. Please remember to return library books every Friday to enable us to provide your child with a new book. Also please be aware that reading karate reads can be signed off using any type of genre/reading material.
The new homework menu will be sent home with your child during the first week back. Throughout the half term, the aim is collect 10 points by completing a range of exciting challenge.
The children will have an opportunity to share their wonderful work with their peers in school time and during our shine assembly. As well as this, there will be a homework display board to celebrate their efforts. Thanks you for all of your ongoing support with their homework and we are delighted with all of the work brought in already.
