Welcome to Red Kite Class
Children, here it is: your final year in primary school. Parents, here it is: your child's final year in primary school! And believe me, it's a biggy: it's packed from the word go (Monday) and doesn't let up until May (SATs) when it does calm down a bit (sort of) before July and the whole thing is done and dusted.
Okay, maybe that's too much of a long-range view, let's take things in slightly smaller chunks shall week: starting with Week One.
We will start the term with a creative look at our class animal, the red kite. To explore this amazing bird we will write poems about how it moves, feeds and lives, we will explore vocabulary to express and describe movement as well as creating visual images to accompany this poetic work. This work will go on display.
As well as this we start our guided reading unit with Goodnight Mr Tom which is a wonderful novel linking beautifully to our History learning later in the term. In maths we start with Place Value and our writing will be using The House on 100 Clocks as a starting point.
If you scroll down, you will find a number of documents below which will come in handy. These will be updated as the year develops, so please keep checking back here for information about what's going on.
Finally, I am here to support your child's learning as best I can. If there is something you think I need to know or something you feel I could be doing to support your child please find me on the playground at the start of the day, on the door at the end of the day or get in touch with the office and I will give you a call.
