Falcons

 

Welcome to Falcons class I'm Miss Bligh and I am the class teacher. Miss Powles and Miss Gazzard also work in Falcons class.

 

Our topic for Spring term is ‘Grand Designs’. Our focus will be on treehouses and we will make one using a range of materials. In English, we will read the ‘Magic Faraway Tree’ and write instructions on how to create a torch using SAMLABS.

 

In maths, we will be learning about multiplication and division, fractions, time, angles and shapes.

 

In science, we will be learning about electricity, forces and magnets. We will design our own magnetic game that we would play in our treehouses. Alongside, we will write instructions on how to play our game.

 

In art, we will be learning about a range of different influential artist. We will create a graffiti wall to go in our treehouse.

 

In PSHE, we will be recapping what we learnt in Autumn including behaviour, kindness and mental/physical health. In growth mindset, we will learn how the brain is a muscle, the power of YET and how making mistakes is important.

 

In the Spring term, our P.E day will be a Tuesday and Wednesday. Children will need to come to school wearing their PE kit on these days (they will not change during the school day). Please make sure you wear appropriate clothing for PE such as joggers or shorts (weather dependent). Please bring a jumper so you don’t get cold – we will be outside for all our PE lessons until further notice.

 

If you or your child need support accessing Seesaw please speak to me. Children can complete all their homework on Seesaw and send it to me to be approved. You can support us by listening to your child read regularly and helping them learn their times tables and spellings.

 

Children will receive rewards for completed homework and if an adult signs their link book to let us know they have read at home. 

 

Children can become ‘Maths Champions’ and receive a special pencil when they know all the times tables for their year group: Y3: x2, x10, x5, x3, x4 and x8, Y4: all x tables up to 12 x 12.

 

We are all looking forward to learning new and interesting things this term.
