1-1 Teaching Assistant
Welcome to Godrevy Class.
We are looking forward to welcoming you back in January! Happy New Year everyone.
For the Spring term, we will be learning about our topic 'The Mighty Mayans'.
If you have any resources connected with our topic that you would like us to share in class, please send it in via the office. Please see our medium term planning below for more information about our topic.
In Science, we will be learning about electricity and forces for Spring term. These are great topics that gives us the opportunity to do lots of investigating and thinking scientifically.
In Art, we will be focussing on the artist Paul Klee and learning about the history of the artist as well as trying to create art in the syle of his work. The children will also be learning how to weave and make Mayan inspired art and masks using warm and cool colours.In addition, the children will be using a range of materials to create art based upon their religion Christianity this term.
In RE, our focus for world religion will be Judaism and we will continue to learn more about their beliefs, rituals and celebrations. Alongside this, the children will be have weekly lessons on Christianity and spirituality sessions alongside virtual collective worship on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
If you have any questions, please catch Mrs Quick at the end of the day or pop a note in your child's reading record.
Please keep your eye on our class page for updates and photos showing what we have been up to!
PE will take place on Tuesday afternoon and we will be teaching the children all about football and gymnastics this half term. We would like PE kits in school all half term because we sometimes do extra PE sessions during the week.
Homework will be initially be based on the current theme, 'The Mighty Mayans'. Attached to this page is the Chilli Challenge sheet based on the topic. Please encourage your children to take part in this creative homework. The children will receive certificates for their contribution and their work will be displayed on our celebration wall in lower key stage 2. Please ensure your child does a minimum of 10 points on the homework grid.
Daily reading and times tables practise on TT Rockstars, hit the button or Mathsframe are still very important and the children’s reading records will be checked daily to make sure that they are reading regularly. In addition, please practise the year 3/4 spellings with your child as often as possible. Spelling test will take place each friday along with a times table test.
Building Learning Power
Our new learning power for this half term is 'Managing Distractions' and we will be looking to inspire all of our children to be as independent and intrinsically engaged in their learning as possible.
