HAWTHORN CLASS

Welcome to Hawthorn Class!

Hawthorn Class is so excited to welcome you back to school for the Summer term! 

 

This year we have Miss Trayte, Mrs King, Mrs Barnes and Miss Wright in Hawthorn Class, along with 26 lovely children.

 

Watch this space for details about our fun activities and what we get up to in class!

We had lots of fun and learning in our third week back.

 

English:

We finished off our block of Oliver Twist, finishing with some lovely written narratives, using a similar structure to the adventure story with the main character having a moral dilemma. The children produced some wonderful work with lovely vocabulary included and fantastic ideas.

 

Maths:

We finished off our statistic block this week, looking at different charts, table and graphs. We especially focused on line graphs, understanding how we can read and interpret them so that we use the data to answer questions and estimate answers.

 

Reading:

We looked at a narrative text called 'The Albatross Virus' this week, focusing on the skill retrieval, amongst our other VIPERS skills. There were some particularly interesting descriptions and vocabulary used which can help us in our own writing.

 

PE:

The children have started looking at Rounders and Athletics this week. The children thoroughly enjoyed Sports Day and it was so lovely to have members of our parent community there to support after so long! Please keep your eyes peeled for some lovely photographs documenting this event!

 

 

Phew! That's a lot to fit in one week!

 

Growth Mindset of the Week:

PE

Our PE days for this term are Tuesday and Thursday.

The children will wear their PE kits to school on those days and stay in those clothes for the whole day. Please ensure that all clothing items are still labelled. 

 

Homework

Maths/SPaG and Spelling homework will both be set on a Thursday to be returned the following Thursday. It is expected that children read five times per week at least and this must be recorded in their reading diaries. These will be collected every Thursday and the children will receive a house point if they have five adult signatures in their reading diaries.

 

The spelling words for each group, for each week will be handed out to children as a paper copy as well as on here to refer back too.

 

Please ensure that your child's blue homework folder is brought into school every Wednesday and Thursday as we will put their homework straight into them, along with any other work for them to practice at home. Our spelling tests will take place on a Wednesday afternoon and they will receive their new spellings for the following week on a Thursday.

Citizenship Award

 

We are participating in the citizenship award, where there are several activities that must be completed, helping your local and wider communities, before signing off and being given a citizenship award. Successful children will receive a badge at the end of term and maybe an additional separate treat! Bring in photographs as evidence or signed notes and Miss Trayte will add them to your sheet. I have attached a blank copy below so you know what you need to do!

Below are some links to websites which you can use to supplement your learning at home. Most of them we also use in school.
