Ash Class

Ash Class 1

Notices:

Wednesday 23rd January 6pm - PGL and SATS meeting for parents.

 

Spring 2019

 

This term, as well as continuing to prepare for our SATs, we have a geography focus - North America.

We will be learning all about this diverse continent; both it's physical and human geography.  We will also we discovering about the Native American culture in English and art lessons.

In science, we are developing our knowledge of the human body, in particular the circulatory system.  And this understanding will also help us in PE as we continue to gain skills in a variety of sports and disciplines.

We will continue to gain knowledge about the Muslim faith in RE and in February will visit Maidenhead Mosque.

Please remember.....

  • always have a good reading book in school
  • PE is on Mondays and Thursdays, so always have the correct kit on those days
  • to have your super 6 stationary every day                               and
  • to continue to demonstrate a positive attitude in all you do!

Homework

Homework will be set every week.  Usually on a Friday to be handed in on the following Wednesday. 

This will consist of maths, English and sometimes extra topic, science or other subjects.

I expect you to be reading every day and to try to vary the genres, authors and subjects matters of the books you read.

Maths Homework

..... is set every Friday and must be handed in on the following Wednesday.  It should take no longer than 30 minutes as it will usually be practising and reinforcing concepts we have been learning about in class.  If you do find it too tricky, please ask an adult to sign to say you tried and then let me know so that I can help you further. Sometimes you will have a sheet to complete, sometimes an activity on Mathletics and maybe even a game to play with someone at home!
