Blue Class 2020 - 2021

Mr Greasby

Blue Class Teacher

Hello All!

 

Welcome to the Summer Term! I hope you have had a fantastic Easter break, filled with chocolate and happiness. Here we go for our final term together in Blue Class! 

For your information, please find below details of your child’s homework tasks and topics planned for this term, which I hope will help you to support your child in the best possible way. All homework tasks are intended to benefit your child’s learning, by consolidating work done in school and encouraging them to work more independently at home.

 

Home Learning and Student Diaries

As with last term, your child will continue to be given weekly Home Learning. This can be accessed on Teams. If for any reason your child is unable to complete a home learning task, please let me know. Communication with this worked brilliantly last term, thank you. 

Home Learning should be completed to the same standard of presentation that is expected in school.

The more your child can engage with this, the better, as it builds on learning from throughout the week in school. 

It is so important this term that your child continues with:

  • Daily reading (for at least 30 minutes)
  • Weekly spellings (Set on a Tuesday to be learnt for a test the following Tuesday).
  • Daily TimesTable Rockstars (for at least 10 minutes)
  • A weekly Maths or English task (set on a Friday to be returned by the following Thursday) or a home learning task associated with our termly topic.

Times Tables must be learnt fluently and with rapid recall, both for multiplication and division number facts.

 

Reading Records

Your involvement in continuing to hear your child read is actively encouraged throughout Blue Class. It would be much appreciated if you could sign this when you have listened to your child read, alongside a comment from you or your child. Engaging your child in discussion about what they are reading will greatly benefit them as they progress throughout Key Stage 2.

Your child’s comments must be relevant and make reference to either something that they have read or an opinion about the text.

 

The Curriculum

The curriculum for the Summer Term is readily available through the Blue Class Website. Our topic is ‘Under the Sea’ where we will learn all about the world’s oceans. Our texts for this term shall be, ‘Manfish: A story of Jacques Cousteau’ by Jennifer Berne and ‘The Boy Who Sailed the World in an Armchair’ by Lara Williamson. Our topic will include work based in the subjects of Literacy, History, Geography, Art and Design & Technology. We shall investigate questions such as, ‘What effects do humans have on our oceans and seas? and ‘What can we learn from cities buried deep below the ocean surface?’

 

Blue Class will be taking part in P.E. lessons on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There may be occasions when the days may change due to a flexible timetable but you will be notified if this is the case. 

 

We will also be taking part in Forest School sessions with Mr Hadfield on Wednesdays for the first half term. Please dress appropriately for this. 

 

The class will be taking part in a weekly guitar lesson, provided for us by Music for Life. Your child will be given a guitar to use that will be labelled and will remain in school.

 

Finally, may I also remind you that your child should have a water bottle for use in class and for break / lunch time. Your child has a tray to keep their belongings in throughout the school day and has access to it whenever they may need it. 

Many thanks for your co-operation and support and I look forward to the term ahead. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries or concerns.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Mr M. Greasby
