Class Charter

In Otters Class we:

listen to everybody and we take turns to speak

help each other to stay safe and to learn

show kindness every day

are loving towards everyone and our planet

forgive because everyone makes mistakes

so that we can Let Our Light Shine (Matthew 5)!


Our Curriculum

We have a very busy term coming up! During the first half of the summer term, our theme is Let's Play where we'll be learning about toys past and present. We will also be focussing on the following:

English: we'll be writing a fantasy story and a set of instructions using all the right features

Maths: our focus will be on arithmatic (using all four operations to find answers) and measures (length, mass, capacity, etc.). A good knowledge of times table facts and related division facts will help!

Religious Education: we will begin to learn about Islam with a focus on this Big Question - How and why are Allah and Muhammad (PBUH) important to Muslims?

Science: our learning will focus on materials and their properties

Design and Technology: to develop our knowledge of healthy eating and food preparation, we'll be designing and making a fruit salad

History: we will learn all about toys from the past right up to the present

PE: our future Olympians will be developing their athletics skills, both track and field, in preparation for Sports Day!

Computing: we'll be navigating our way around a virtual maze and using spreadsheets 

You can get involved at home by visiting museums where there's a toy exhibition, reading books with toys as characters (especially where they go on an adventure or solve a mystery), practise your multiplication and division facts, borrow books from the library abut Islam, ask to help an adult at home prepare a healthy snack so you can develop your knife skills and get fit by joining a sports club.
