Teaching and Learning- Term 3
Our Topic this term is ‘Mary Seacole. We are looking forward to welcoming the children back with a visit from Mrs Alexander as a nurse to get the children excited about nursing. We will be exploring the life of Mary Seacole as well as exploring how nurses are real life super heroes. Our main book focuses this term are Georges Marvellous Medicine linking in how Mary Seacole created her own medicines; and Supertato exploring making our own superhero stories.
General information about Caterpillar Class.
Staff in Caterpillar Class
We are lucky to have excellent hard-working staff in our classroom. Mrs De La Hoyde is one of our teaching assistants and she will be in class every morning and 2 afternoon to support the children and their learning. We also have Mrs Dunham and Mrs Haq to support the class. Mrs De La Hoyde and Mrs Dunham are also lunchtime supervisors, so they will be there to support the children during the lunch break too.
We aim to change reading books on a Tuesday and Friday. If your child reads 4 times a week they will be put onto our blooming flower and come home with a My Reading is Blooming sticker. Please keep this up and let us know if they read any other texts as reading at home or from the library really gives them time to absorb and enjoy literature.
Spellings and My Maths
The children will receive weekly spellings that are linked to our phonics learning. These will be tested every Thursday and new spellings will be sent home every Friday. Each child also gets their own My Maths log in and will have activities and games set once a fortnight.
Please ensure all uniform, PE kits, bags, hats and scarves are named. We endeavour to return as much as possible but without names this makes returning lost things really difficult.
Drink and fruit
Your child has their own named water bottle to use throughout the school day.
Children have free access to their bottles throughout the day and naturally the water is replenished if needed.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us either through the school office or email me at email@example.com or Sammy.firstname.lastname@example.org
