Welcome to Class Attenborough!
I never thought I would have to do this again, but here we are with online learning and so many of you not in school. This isn’t what any of us would have wanted but sadly it is necessary for the time being. I will be in class everyday teaching some of the class as normal. I just want to reassure those of you at home that I am still your teacher, and I am still available to talk to, I will be logged on to TEAMs every afternoon so you can speak to me there and you will be able to submit some of your work there for me to take a look at. I greatly look forward to a time when this is no longer necessary, but for now we will do the best we can. For more details of this week, please click the link below.
This term we will be starting off with looking at multiplication and division, before moving on to statistics - specifially reading and writing tables, and bar charts, moving on the the properties of shape and then to fractions, length and height.
PE continues to be every Monday, and I am planning to teach our first PE session on the Monday we return to school, please make sure that your child arrives in their PE kit and I would strongly recommend tracksuit bottoms or leggings as well as their school jumper. This half term we will be looking at gymnastics, themed around animals.
This half term in English, we will be looking at stories with repeating language, before moving on to looking at some different forms of poetry. I have found that learning and performing a children's story as a class has proved popular with child and parent alike in the past, so I will be doing this with them this half term.
Moving on from last term's work on animals including humans, this half term we will be looking more specifically at animal habitats, and how animals are suited to specific environments. I am also intending to take children on the field at some point this half term but will alert you as to when we need wellies.
This term we will be looking at Nottingham artists, starting with the 19th century painter Richard Bonington, before moving on to the fashion designer Paul Smith.
I have included our curriculum planning timetable for the year under this message, please be aware that I may change the order of delivery of different units of learning as the year goes on but if so I will update this timetable.
